Publisher's Summary

The time: 1931. The place: the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept Atlantic shore. The event: a once-in-a-lifetime 36-hole match...in which the stakes are higher than anyone imagined.
In Steven Pressfield's richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But the key to the outcome lies with Bagger Vance, a caddie who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing. His mysterious powers guide the play and leave a lasting imprint on the lives he touches that day and in years to come.
A sports fable worthy of comparison to The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals that, in life as well as golf, the real battle is not with outside opponents but with oneself.

Blows the movie away!

This is a great story, rich in detail and very well narrated by Ronnie Cox. I didn't care for the movie but Pressfield is a fabulous storyteller.

Narrator Excellent!

What made the experience of listening to The Legend of Bagger Vance the most enjoyable?

The author must have had the narrator Ronny Cox in mind when he wrote the book. I have listened to many many audio books, but this narrator was great with a capital G. I could not wait to get in my car and drive to work each day listening to the story.
