BOWDEN will be a sweeping, emotional book about a man and a family whose lives resemble an inspirational, sprawling drama, Florida State University's head coach Bobby Bowden. BOWDEN will not only highlights Bobby's gridiron glory but also chronicles the family members' very human events, including tragic deaths, criminal indictments, loss of jobs and fortunes, of their respective lives. This is the story of an American family known for its football glory, but loved and valued for its stubborn dedication to each other and ubiquitous glue that's held the family together through triumph and tragedy. And the Bowden family has experienced the highs and lows of life's menu of events: from tragic accidental deaths to criminal indictments to loss of jobs and fortunes. the Bowdens become a dominant force in sports, as they have seen their father become a college football legend, his sons enter into the sport, and family members experience the highs and lows of being in the public eye as well as the pain of losing loved ones to untimely deaths.
The Bowdens remain unfazed by the turmoil around them. Most of all, as BOWDEN will demonstrate, they remain a family.
