The games, the politics, and the culture that Frei deals with here unfolded thirty years ago, but they're brought to life again in this book with a clarity and a luster that make the story of Denver and the Broncos seem as fresh as the upcoming football season. (Michael Knisley, senior deputy editor, ESPN.com)
No one knows more about Denver and its sports than Terry Frei does, and here in '77 he describes nothing less than the transformation of a city with a special focus on Denver's most magical team. To know why and how the Mile High City exists as it does today, this is essential reading. (Sandy Clough, AM 950 "The Fan")
Terry Frei's book captures it perfectly, the coming of age that occurred for both a city and its football team when the Denver Broncos made it to their first Super Bowl. Few times in sports can match the passion and sheer joy of the original Broncomania. (Mile High Sports Magazine)

...and this book has allowed me to re-live the memories in more detail than I ever had access to. It was a wonderful romp down memory lane and reminded me that as a young boy living in Denver was truly special. If your from Denver or have ever seen it on the map and like the Broncos this is a must read! Totally enjoyable and complete this book delivered. For me this nugget of time and how the authors captured it struck pure gold in the heart of a great city.
There are some black and white photos in the middle of the book and there are stats at the end which summaries the season. The book gives a behind the scenes look at what happened in the 1977 season from the prospectives of the players and coaches. There is much detail including a nice description of the player revolt that let to John Ralston's firing and Red Miller's hiring.
At the end of the book there is a summary of each player that tells what they did after 1977 and where they are now. Overall, this a very well written book. If you are a football fan of the 1970's, or the Denver Bronco's in general, this is a must read.
I loved this book and the flashbacks were entertaining. Lots of smiles and "Oh yeahs".
