The Coach at West Mackenzie is an excellent story about a high school football coach in a mining town. The school board chariman demands that Coach Standish put the sons of two prominent citizens on his first team, and they expect him to favor the "Americans" in every situation. The coach's absolute fairness and plain dealing in managing his squad lead to unusual developments, far removed from the gridiron. Standish's service for God in a small church and in soul-winning combine with a delightful romance to make this a great read.
