Eagle Blue A Team A Tribe and a High School Basketball Team in Arctic Alaska ↠ N the tradition A Team PDFEPUB #196 of Friday Night Lights an extraordinary journey into the basketball crazed culture of remote Arctic AlaskaThe village of Fort Yukon sits eight miles above the Arctic Circle deep in Alaska's bush country The six hundred men women and children who live Eagle Blue PDFEPUBthere almost all of them Athabascan Gwich'in Natives have little to cheer for Their traditional Indian ways of life are rapidly vanish I thought that Eagle Blue by Michael D’Orso was a great book and would rate it 455 stars The author provides a great balance between writing about basketball and Alaskan tradition The premise of the book is about a team of high school basketball players in Fort Yukon Alaska In order to even participate in the sport these players and coaches gave a tremendous effort and went through numerous obstacles to get where they did by the end of the book Saying this I thought overall this book was very well written and I thought that the blend of Alaskan culture and basketball made this a very uniue readThe author throughout the read includes great imagery of the state of Alaska and to explain how playing basketball is much different there than in one of your other states The author goes on to state on page 23 “Evening and the sky over Fort Yukon is dancing It shimmers with waves of diaphanous light The billow and bend celestial ribbons of green blue and violet swirling in from the north arcing over the village and whirling off toward the mountains that lie to the south”This sentence displays that the author wrote this book based around basketball but also periodically dropped some tidbits about Alaska as well as included sensory detailsIn conclusion Eagle Blue is a great read due to how the book had various facets that made this much than an average basketball book The author did a great job on researching Alaskan ways of life and combining that with a cinderella basketball story I definitely would recommend people to read this book especially if you like stories that include perseverance reader ¹ Eagle Blue A Team A Tribe and a High School Basketball Team in Arctic Alaska ☆ Michael D'Orso
