Description
Hope is hard to come by in Willow Creek, Montana, but Sam Pickett and five young men are about to change that. Sam never expected to settle in this forgotten place on the western edge of the world, where he came to hide from the violence and madness that shattered his life. But there's a spirit of tenacity that endures in Willow Creek, and in the high school basketball team Sam coaches, despite their 093 record. And when, one season, his most capable players in years are joined by a 6-foot, 11-inch Norwegian exchange student, Sam finally begins to see a future worth living. Also the author of Amos: To Ride a Dead Horse (which became a 1985 television movies starring Kirk Douglas and Elizabeth Montgomery), Stanley Gordon West fills Willow Creek with vividly drawn characters as real as relatives.

"West has created a moving story, and one that moves along quickly, tying the lessons of basketball to those of life. As Coach Pickett says, 'Maybe after so many losses along the way we all need to win at something,' a sentiment so true after all."Minneapolis Star-Tribune
