RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 645880413 LA English T1 Friday night lights : a town, a team, and a dream A1 Bissinger, H. G., PB Da Capo PP Cambridge, Mass. YR 2007 SN 9780756980849 0756980844 AB Odessa is not known to be a town big on dreams, but the Panthers help keep the hopes and dreams of this small, dusty town going. Socially and racially divided, its fragile economy follows the treacherous boom-bust path of the oil business. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true.
