Patrick Chelland takes a look at the Gipp legend and examines what made the Gipper run. Through memoirs, newspaper accounts, and interviews with Gipp's friends, the author recreates an extraordinary period in American history. Here is the flavor of campus life, the emergence of Notre Dame's football dynasty, the exuberance of a nation infatuated with its heroes. In the middle of it all stood halfback George Gipp, the vital symbol of an era yet an aloof, troubled young man, a gambler, womanizer, and wit who made himself a legend in the course of a tragically brief life.
