Selena : como la flor by Joe Nick Patoski( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1995 murder of 23-year-old singer Selena has had a continuing impact, especially on the Hispanic community. Patoski, a senior editor at Texas Monthly, seems well acquainted with the world of Tejano music and the part Selena played in it, and his biography is more objective than other works on Selena. Though neither Selena's enigmatic father nor her other family members cooperated with Patoski, many others in the Tejano music world did. Patoski weaves Selena's story into the broader context of the music business and the changing bicultural scene of which she was a part, making this the best biography available of the singer
Stevie Ray Vaughan : caught in the crossfire by Joe Nick Patoski( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught in the Crossfire is the first biography of this meteoric guitar hero. Emerging from the hotbed of Texas blues, Stevie Ray Vaughan developed his unique style early on, in competition with his older brother, Jimmie Vaughan, founder of the Fabulous Thunderbirds - a competition that shaped much of Stevie's life. Fueled by drugs and alcohol through a thousand one-night stands, he lived at a fever pitch that nearly destroyed him. Musically exhausted and close to collapse, in his final years Stevie Ray mustered the courage to overcome his addictions, finding strength and inspiration in a new emotional openness. His death in a freak helicopter crash in 1990 silenced one of the great musical talents of our time
The Dallas Cowboys : the outrageous history of the biggest, loudest, most hated, best loved football team in America by Joe Nick Patoski( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Dandy Don Meredith and Roger Staubach to the three Super Bowls won by the unbeatable trio of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith in the mid-nineties, to TO, Tony Romo, and the glitzy soap opera team of today, the Cowboys have been the NFL's star franchise for 50 years. Love them or hate them - the Dallas Cowboys are known as "America's Team." But the Cowboys have never been just about football. With their oil baron roots, overbearing, ego-driven owner, players who can't stay out of the tabloids, a palatial new home that sets the standard for modern stadiums, fans as enthuiastic as cheerleaders and cheerleaders who are as famous as the team itself, the Cowboys have become a staple of Americana. Joe Nick Patoski plumbs all these stories in a book that is a rich, sometimes scandalous, and always vivid portrait of a time, a place, and an irreplaceable team"--

"Joe Nick Patoski complements Parent's images with a masterfully crafted word portrait of Big Bend National Park. Patoski describes the powerful geologic and volcanic forces that created the awe-inspiring landscape of the Big Bend. He reviews the park's natural history and also its human history, from the prehistoric hunter-gatherers who ranged over the region to Cabeza de Vaca, who was probably the first European to see Big Bend, to the creation of the national park in the 1930s and 1940s. Patoski also summarizes recent conservation efforts that have led to the protection of 2.4 million acres on both sides of the Rio Grande."--Jacket

Texas high school football : more than the game by Joe Nick Patoski( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Texas High School Football: More Than the Game celebrates high school football and the profound role it plays in contemporary Texas culture as well as Texas's mythology. In this compelling volume by writer Joe Nick Patoski, the epic history of the sport is illustrated through an all-star cast of legendary players and coaches, cheerleaders and drill teams, marching bands and twirlers, mascots and die-hard fanatics. Filled with the visual pomp and spectacle of the autumn ritual, Texas High School Football digs beyond the stats to look deeper into the sport and explore its significance as the common denominator that connects individuals and creates community throughout the state, from tiny Six Man rural schools to 5A suburban giants. Using the uniforms, equipment, and ephemera of the game, from Drew Brees's football jersey to a vintage photograph of Don Meredith escorting his high school homecoming queen, Patoski poignantly weaves an engaging visual chronicle of the pageantry engrained in the souls of Texans in every corner of the state. A cavalcade of helmets, championship rings, spirit ribbons, and homecoming mums contribute to this powerful story of high school football in Texas, where supporting the local team is a passion and a responsibility. Iconic high school football images by photographers Geoff Winningham, Laura Wilson, Jeff Wilson, and Bill Kennedy are an extra bonus in this extravagantly illustrated high school football compendium. Texas High School Football is a true game changer--you'll never look at high school football the same way again.--amazon.com
