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.

Wow, this is exceptional!!
The narrator is unbelievable. I couldn't believe the variety of characters one man could bring to life.
The deep insights into the transmundane.
Without hope and Without fear
It is book about golf and I was putting this novel off because it seemed like something I wouldn't care about. I have listened to all of Steve's audiobooks, absolutely love them, and this one might be my favorite! It is a book that can be mined for knowledge and truths. It is so well written and narrated. It is so much different and better than what I expected. I can't believe how it blew my expectations away!
enjoyable start to finish
