Described by James Dobson as "America's Keeper of the Story," Joe Wheeler has been collecting short stories from numerous sources for many years. Among these over 1,000 stories are some especially selected for boys, age 8-12, about sports. In this compilation of short stories, author/compiler Joe Wheeler captures the physical challenges and character-building choices of Terry and eleven other young athletes involved in a variety of sports including baseball, football, basketball, diving, hockey, rowing, bicycling and swimming. As a bonus, readers will see how things have changed in various sports over the years. Perfect for any boy who loves sports and the history behind them.
Dr. Wheeler is considered to be the worlds foremost authority on the life and times of frontier writer, Zane Grey. He published Zane Greys West (a fanzine) from 1979 to 1991, and co-founded the international Zane Greys West Society in 1983; he continues to serve as its executive director. A teacher by profession, he has chaired college departments of English and Communication in three states.
Author/Editor/Compiler of 70 books by eleven publishing houses, he is considered to be one of Americas leading anthologizers of stories. He has also served as a director of cultural affairs, director of an adult degree program, director of concert stage and classic film series, United Way administrator, president of a Texas school district board of trustees, Kiwanis president, and Senior Fellow for western studies for the Center for the New West in Denver.
In spite of all these roles and involvements, he considers his greatest honor to be Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family designating him, "Americas Keeper of the Story." Today, he lives in Conifer, Colorado with his wife, Connie. They have two children, Greg and Michelle, and two grandsons.
