    New Vikings book due out September 1

    Relive fifty years of glory and defeat as a Minnesota Vikings football fan.

    THE VIKINGS READER
    Armand Peterson, editor
    University of Minnesota Press | 384 pages | September 2009
    ISBN 978-0-8166-5337-9 | hardcover | $25.95

    From the early days of Fran Tarkenton to the rushing records of Adrian Peterson, from the bleachers of Met Stadium to the locker rooms of the Metrodome, The Vikings Reader revels in the plays that have brought generations of purple and gold fans to their feet—or left them groaning in their seats—and brings Vikings football to life for fans everywhere.

    "This is the best collection of purple prose I've ever read, a rich and varied account that ends—like so many operatic Viking seasons—too soon."—Steve Rushin

    "Pro football zealots are sure to find fascinating accounts here to meet all of their needs."—Jim Klobuchar
