Editorial Reviews


2016 International Book Awards: Finalist, Fiction: General

2015 USA Book Awards: Finalist, Fiction: General

"Huskers is a true underdog story of triumph in which readers will feel like they get to know all the characters on the team. These boys are working hard for a goal that they reach with each other's help. A touching story for parents and kids alike!"—Lisa Haycraft, Media Specialist, Helmwood Heights Elementary

“Sports teach us how to work together toward a common goal and find opportunities for all of us to improve on some level. Huskers illustrates the difference in the times from when we grew up and those of present-day kids. Although it may not be the main theme, it shows how kids took charge of their own recreation. The whole "parent piece" of the modern day didn't exist. There was an entirely different understanding of the meaning of what it was to be a parent. Kids worked out ways to deal with the social ups and downs of growing up. The book shows the resiliency of kids in a difficult situation. It also demonstrates how we can learn something from both winning and losing. Huskers is a great story of how savvy, hard work, and teamwork can win out when you're the underdog and that anything's possible.”—Dr. Lynne Farmer, former professional athlete, physical educator and school principal; Ed. D., B.A. Ripon College, M.A. University of Minnesota, MBA Dominican University, Ed. D. Loyola University of Chicago

About the Author

Strat Warden grew up in rural Nebraska in the 1960s. He was an accomplished high school and college athlete, and served as a corpsman with the US Marines before earning a commission in the US Navy Medical Corps. He completed his training as a general surgeon in the US Navy and served in that capacity until he entered private practice in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Dr. Warden retired in 2005 to spend more time with his children; devote more attention to ZirMed, Inc., where he served as Chairman of the Board until retiring in 2012; and to write Huskers, in hopes that it would help his children, and others, to understand the "true awards" of participating in sports.
