The Legend of Jesse Smoke

The Legend of Jesse Smoke

(2011)
A novel by

 
Jesse Smoke was nothing short of a true phenomenon. By now, everyone knows who she was and what she accomplished. She is perhaps the most famous woman in the world; a consummate athlete, strong, swift, smart and definitely her own person. She has the will of a field marshal, and the talent of a John Elway, Peyton Manning, or even Joe Montana. Built like Montana, she had a better arm and was just as cool under pressure. Coach Walter "Skip" Granger worked with her and knew her in the glory years. In spite of all that has been written about her, no one has tackled the story of her difficult and seemingly impossible rise to fame. This is the true story of the young woman who's skill with a football, and leadership of men twice her size, made her into a modern day Legend. No other commentator has had the kind of intimate relationship with Jess Smoke as Coach "Skip" Granger. He is the man who discovered her; it was his ingenuity and skillful management of the wide array of clichés about men and women that led the way for her eventual success in the most male of all sports. And it was also Coach Granger who was there when the legal world, the NFL and its union and even the Canadian Football league came crashing down on her and revealed the dark secret that threatened to ruin her. Here is the story from the man who in many ways engineered it; from the coach whose awareness of the skill required to play quarterback, and faith in his own judgment of that skill in another human being, made Jesse's most improbable odyssey possible. Now the truth of the legend can be told.
