Wrestlers At The Trials is a powerful collection of stories about 90 remarkable wrestlers - in their own words. These amateur wrestlers from the 1960s, '70s and '80s had a common goal....to make the US Olympic wrestling team. Their compelling stories - most of which have never been told until now - reveal their ordeals: fighting backroom politics and racial prejudices; surviving weight-cutting countdowns and physical training beyond - way beyond - normal boundaries. From the tongues of Blubaugh, Douglas, Owings, Gable, Farrell, Schalles, Kemp, Mills, Schultz, Fraser, Monday and many other great wrestlers....read their stories of glorious achievements and punishing defeats. The stories of their Trials.... Amateur Wrestling News, in their review of the book last year, commented that Wrestlers At The Trials is... full of fascinating stories, anecdotes and opinions... a must for any serious wrestling fan. The book, which is a hard-cover 196 page publication with many action photographs, also received the 2007 Publication of the Year award from the National Wrestling Media Association.
