The definitive, lavishly illustrated history of the Green Bay Packers, commemorating the centennial of the team
As the only fan-owned team in any of North America’s major pro leagues, and centered on the unlikely town of Green Bay, Wisconsin—population 105,116—there’s no question that the Packers are a unique team with a uniquely interesting history.
Through extensive archival research and unmatched insider access to players and officials past and present, Mark Beech tells the first complete history of the Green Bay Packers, a full chronicle of the most important team in NFL history. The People’s Team paints a complete and compelling picture of a team, a town, and the fans whose identities are forever intertwined, from the days of the French fur traders who settled on the shores of La Baie Verte in the seventeenth century to Green Bay’s pursuit of its fourteenth NFL championship.
Featuring essays by Austin Murphy, Chuck Mercein, David Neft, Chris Brown, and Peter King, The People’s Team is a must-have gift for fans old and new, and the definitive illustrated history of the most unique team in the NFL.
