Vince Dooley and Steve Penley come together in their third collaboration (after Dooley’s Playbook and Vince Dooley’s Garden), this time telling the story of the University of Georgia, the place they both love most.

Vince Dooley is uniquely positioned to tell the history of the University of Georgia. As head football coach and athletics director, Dooley served the university under five presidents, and he turns often to personal observations and anecdotes to inform readers. A masterful storyteller and a lifelong learner with a master’s degree in history, Dooley weaves a compelling narrative of more than two centuries of history at the university.

Renowned American artist Steve Penley may be best known for his paintings of historical icons, but his love for the University of Georgia pours out of every visual interpretation. With strong brush strokes and bold colors, Penley presents the university and its history as only he can.
