"The Packers, My Dad, and Me: A Family Legacy That Fed a National Obsession" features multi-generational viewpoints of the team's 1930s glory years

GREEN BAY, Wis. - eTradeWire -- The Green Bay Packers were in the midst of establishing themselves as a National Football League power in 1929 when John Walter took a summer job at his hometown newspaper, the Green Bay Press-Gazette. He soon would have a front-row seat to the Packers' first stretch of glory years while navigating the challenges of becoming an adult during the Great Depression.

Author Tony Walter, like his father a former Press-Gazette sports editor, combines his own narrative with John Walter's personal diaries and newspaper columns to provide a first-hand account of life in the 1930s and a behind-the-scenes look at the fledgling NFL in his new book, The Packers, My Dad, and Me: A Family Legacy That Fed a National Obsession.
