The true story of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team and the Miracle on Ice, which Sports Illustrated called the greatest sports moment in sports history “An unvarnished and captivating read.”—Parade Once upon a time, they taught us to believe. They were the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, a blue-collar bunch led by an unconventional coach. Their “Miracle on Ice” has become a national fairy tale, but the real Cinderella story is even more remarkable. Wayne Coffey casts a fresh eye on this seminal sports event, giving readers an ice-level view of the amateurs who took on a Russian hockey juggernaut at the height of the Cold War. He details the unusual chemistry of the Americans—formulated by their fiercely determined coach, Herb Brooks—and seamlessly weaves portraits of the boys with the fluid action of the game itself. Coffey also traces the paths of the players and coaches since their stunning victory, examining how the Olympic events affected their lives. Told with warmth and an uncanny eye for detail, The Boys of Winter is an intimate, perceptive portrayal of one Friday night in Lake Placid and the enduring power of the extraordinary.

The book is a telescopic view of the central events of the Universe. It uses the mathematical concept of possibilities to amplify the teachings of the first part of the book. It uses an intimate observation of the central person of the Universe as He plunges into the Great Beyond in order to make salvation possible for all those who will believe upon Him in the second part of the book. The magnitude of the events around Calvary use darkness and tremors to focus an infinite beam of light upon the scared hill. The last units of the book demonstrate the infinite power of God as He forms the world as a stage for that Divine surge of marvelous love for the redemption of all races of people upon the earth. This proves that God really does have the whole world in His grip.

In April 1861, brothers Daniel and Pressley Boyd left their farm in Abbeville County, South Carolina, to join the Confederate army. The Civil War soon swept their other brothers, William, Thomas and Andrew, as well as brother-in-law Fenton Hall into service. By the war’s end, only Daniel survived. The extensive collection of letters the Boyds left behind, assembled for the first time, details their experiences across almost every theater of the war and offers commentary on many aspects of soldier life—from illness, death, and religion to friendly fire, desertion, and politics. Few families sacrificed so much to the Confederate cause as the Boyds.
