One Team. Four Super Bowl Championships. Twelve Hall of Famers. Two Hundred Interviews.
“They were the best to ever play the game: the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s. Three decades later their names echo in popular memory - Mean Joe, Bradshaw, Webster, Lambert, Ham, Blount, Franco, Swann, and Stallworth. They define not only the brotherhood and camaraderie of football, but what Americans love about their most popular sport: its artistry and its brutality. From the team’s origins in a horseplayer’s winnings to the young armored gods who immaculately beat the Raiders in 1972 to the grandfathers with hobbles in their gait, Their Life’s Work tells the full, intimate story of the Steeler dynasty. But this book does much more than that: it tells football’s story. What the game gives, what it takes, and why, to a man, every Steeler, full well knowing the costs, unhesitatingly states, “I’d do it again.”
In Their Life’s Work , author Gary Pomerantz takes you inside the Steel Curtain, the greatest dynasty in football history. Three decades after they hung up their cleats, Pomerantz catches up with legends like Terry Bradshaw, Jack Lambert, Mel Blount and Franco Harris to discuss their legacies in a magnificent history that is required reading for any die-hard Steelers fan. Available in hardcover, this definitive history of the Steel Dynasty makes an excellent addition to any library as well as a beautiful gift for any Steelers fan in your life.
