    Where to find books about the Vikings or former players of the Vikings?





    After seeing this posted in another thread by Snow
    "
    for one, still haven't read Robert Smith's book, that is my choice for book club of the month "

    I was wondering, just how many books, if any, have been wrote about the Minnesota Vikings and or it's former Players and Coaches...




    I'de espeicaly like
    to see a book about Bud Grant, if there is one.




    Anyone have any info on this topic?





    SKOL,

    I searched Vikings and Player and Coaches, got some pretty vague items.
    Need to search for specific name and it will bring up any books.

    didn't
    a book just come out about the history of the vikes recently?
    I heard it on KFAN mentioned by one of the play-by-play people.

    I would like to pick that up myself.

    Never realized there where so many books to be found on the subject......Seeing I have alot of free time on my hands, I may just have to start reading more.
    I can't think of a better topic to read about....

    Bud Grant helped write this book.


    I just finished reading "Quiet Strength" by Tony Dungy who coached for the Vikings. Even though it's about his life there is a lot of stuff about the Vikings in it.
