<div><p>In professional football, careers are often short and turnover is a constant. So when one man’s career spans more than four decades with one organization, it is quite an achievement. Scott Studwell did just that with the Minnesota Vikings. As a linebacker, Studwell totaled a Vikings record 1,981 tackles in 14 seasons, reaching two Pro Bowls. After retiring as a player after the 1990 season, Studwell moved into the Vikings’ player personnel department and served as the team’s Director of College Scouting.</p><p>In <em>Viking for Life: A Four-Decade Football Love Affair</em>, Studwell shares stories from the Vikings teams of the 1970s and ’80s under head coaches Bud Grant and Jerry Burns, teams that reached two NFC championship games. He also provides rare insight into his three decades in the Vikings’ scouting department and draft room, during which he helped the Vikings identify countless stars, including Randy Moss, Adrian Peterson, and Harrison Smith.<br /><br /><strong>In the pages of this striking memoir, Studwell shares a passion for the Vikings that he calls “a dream come true.” </strong></p></div>

<P>Adrian Peterson had major surgery on his left knee on December 30, 2011, making it unlikely the Vikings’ All-Pro running back would be ready for the start of the 2012 NFL season. He vowed to return better than ever, even as his team tried to temper enthusiasm. Throughout 2012, <I>Star Tribune</I> writers chronicled Peterson’s offseason recovery, his impatient training camp, his return to the field, and the notable second half of his season. He finished the year with 2,097 rushing yards, just eight yards short of Eric Dickerson’s single-season NFL record. <I>Rush to Greatness </I>brings together the <I>Star Tribune</I>’s exclusive coverage of Peterson’s pursuit of NFL records and efforts to lead his team into the playoffs. Featuring more than 40 stories and numerous full-color photographs, this is the definitive account of Peterson’s improbable, unprecedented season.

All Rise is the authorized biography of Alan Page, a remarkable man who became a pioneer for his race without setting out to be one. He grew up in Canton, Ohio, in the shadow of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, into which he would later be inducted after his stellar NFL career. After leading Notre Dame to a national championship in 1966 and earning All-America honors, he became a first-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 1967. A six-time All-Pro for the Vikings, where he led the team to four conference titles, he was named the NFL&#39;s MVP in 1971, the first defensive player to be so honored. After retiring and being elected in the NFL Hall of Fame, Page went on to graduate from the University of Minnesota Law School and to become a justice on the Minnesota Supreme Court. This stirring biography takes a detailed look at a truly influential and remarkable man.
