A Dixie Farewell: The Life and Death of Chucky Mullins
Veteran sports journalist Larry Woody offers a heartfelt portrait of Roy Lee (Chucky) Mullins, a freshman at the University of Mississippi, who was tragically injured during an Ole Miss-Vanderbilt game in 1989 and died one year later. Set against a backdrop of poverty and racial hatred, Mullins' story is one of triumph over adversity--an inspiring chronicle of a young man whose death helped to change things. "You don't have to be a football fan to appreciate this touching story about how times and people have changed in the Old South".--William P. Reed, Sports Illustrated. (Eggman Publishing, Inc.)
