Last week, I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of the soon to be released "Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years Of Football" by Sports Illustrated.

Now I've read my fair share of books on the Dallas Cowboys over the years, but this is the first one that I immediately cherished as a collectors item. Believe me when I tell you, that once you get this fine book in your hands, you'll find it very difficult to put down, and I'm not kidding you either.

The book is loaded with some of the most sensational anecdotes and articles about the Cowboys as brought to you by the some of the best sports writers in the country.

I love the way they broke it down into decades.

The photography is stunning and the book is loaded with a vast collection of unforgettable shots that captures the entire history of this historic franchise.

Here is some additional information from the publisher:

Sports Illustrated will release `The Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years Of Football' on August 24th.

The rich heritage of the Cowboys is captured in this extraordinary collection of stories by the finest sports writers in the world, including Peter King, Tim Layden and Dan Jenkins, a spectacular selection of images from the best photo archive in sports, and a mind-boggling array of stats, anecdotes and memorabilia. It is the ultimate celebration of the Dallas Cowboys.

Sports Illustrated The Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years Of Football gives fans an insider look from Sports Illustrated senior writer, Peter King, whose in depth access to "America's Team" includes a three-city scouting trip with Jimmy Johnson to a training camp sit down interview with Tony Romo to discuss his personal life in the off-season.

I bought this book as a gift for my friend who is a die-hard Cowboys fan and was blown away by everything about this book. Being a Vikings fan, I really had no interest in a book about the Cowboys, but started skimming through the pages anyway. Well, I couldn't put it down! It was a wonderful walk through time via awesome photos and narrative. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for any football fan.

Review: "Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years of Football", edited by David Bauer

Sports Illustrated The Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years of Football

Bauer, David (ed). Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years of Football. New York: Sports Illustrated Books. 2010 192p, illus. 29.95 (list) ISBN 978-1-60320-114-8

My first impression when opening this book was "it's big, very big". Not by page count, but by page size (11 x 12 inches). It is easily larger than the other Cowboy histories issued so far this year by Aron, Housewright and Miller. My second impression: the photographs are stunning. Coming from Sports Illustrated I would've expected no less.

This book follows the successful format established by "The Football Book" (2005; revised 2009) and "The College Football Book" (2008): lavish illustrations accompanying excellent contemporary game articles. This is the first team-specific edition published by SI and it is a worthy addition to the canon. It deserves a spot on the bookshelf of every Dallas Cowboys fan.

The book is organized by decade, with more articles devoted to the championship decades of the 70s and 90s. Given the top-flight reporting and photography that SI is known for, it is easy to love this gorgeous volume and hard to find anything to criticize about it. Still . . .

The most obvious question that came to my mind was: what does Mark Cuban in a towel have to do with the Cowboys (photograph on page 166)? Or a 70s-era Southwest Airlines airlines stewardess dressed in hotpants (page 60), or Ann Richards and her shotgun (page 134)? And others too numerous to mention.

Format: Hardcover
Sports Illustrated The Dallas Cowboys: 50 Years of Football is an attractive "coffee table" book for any faithful Cowboy fan and dare I say, any true fan of Pro Football in general, especially fans that experienced those exhilarating Seventies and Eighties with the Cowboys.
The book covers the complete history of the Cowboys from the team's creation in the Sixties until the present. It appears the editors of the book took great care in choosing interesting and evocative pictures which pulls the reader back into each particular era. As I perused the book, I found myself happily reminiscing and remembering great moments of Cowboys history. Oh, so many unforgettable playoff moments! There is the legendary Sixties Ice Bowl in Green Bay, which obviously should be included in any respectable Cowboy chronicle. But as well, and perhaps not as remembered by some, are the Seventies miracles such as the incredible comeback against the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park, and of course, the unforgettable Roger Staubach to Drew Pearson Hail Mary pass and reception in the closing seconds against the heavily favored and hated rival Minnesota Vikings. Any true Cowboy fan knows exactly the games I am talking about; and then there are all the Super Bowl victories. So many books like this are often merely pictures with a bare minimum of words. The photos would have been enough. They are taken by renowned sports photographers who seemed to snap them at just the right nanosecond to capture the true essence of the moment. They are stirring and memorable and perhaps that would have been enough for the true Cowboy devotee. However, as an added extra, and what I most enjoyed, were the stories that complimented the photos.
