Book/DVD package is now available on Amazon
Amazon.com has put together a nice package deal on several books and DVDs related to the 1970 Marshall football plane crash. Each part of the package (see below) provides different perspectives about the tragedy. But when these three works are placed together in one offering, readers and viewers will discover that each item complements the other.
Feel free to check it out for yourself. Go to the Amazon.com website, click on “books” and enter “November Ever After” in the search box. Click on the photo of the book and scroll down to the “Frequently Bought Together” section. The price of this package is a lot more reasonable than you might ever imagine. Here’s a quick synopsis of each part of the Amazon package.
Released in 2000, this ESPN Classic documentary on DVD serves as a memorable tribute to those who lost their lives in a horrible plane crash over forty-one years ago. The eyewitness interviews clearly reveal the depths of anguish and despair felt by those who were left behind in the wake of what is still considered the worst aviation disaster in the history of American sports.
Return of the Thundering Herd
This documentary came out in the weeks leading up to the 2006 nationwide premier of the movie We Are Marshall, which was produced by Warner Brothers. Much of the documentary focuses on how the school and the city of Huntington, West Virginia were able to hold steady and bear witness to one of the most remarkable comebacks in college athletics. The subtitle to this DVD … The Story That Inspired We Are Marshall … is most appropriate.
November Ever After
The story of the Marshall crash continues to resonate strongly with people of all ages. Most of what folks know about the night of November 14, 1970, is based on what they’ve read or seen in the book The Marshall Story, along with the above-mentioned films and Ashes to Glory, which was the first documentary devoted to the tragedy (released in 2000 around the time of the 30th anniversary of the crash).
What sets this book apart from other media works is its inclusion of major events connected with the crash that had never been dealt with in previous productions. Written by a former player who knew most of the players who died, this memoir represents a collaboration of insights and recollections from the voices of those who had never been heard from. November Ever After is story whose time has finally come.
