“The Biography of Canadian Football League and American Football League superstar Cookie Gilchrist. The book covers his triumphs on the gridiron with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, as well as his record setting days with the Buffalo Bills of the AFL. Cookie’s football prowess also brought him a front row seat to many historic events during the 1960s, which are chronicled within the book. In addition to covering Cookie’s exploits on the field the book highlights his battles off the field for civil rights and player health benefits, while giving insight into his personal fight with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy or CTE as it is commonly known.” – Source: http://www.amazon.com
“Cookie was the first superstar player in the history of the Buffalo Bills, and also was the most
enigmatic. His three amazing seasons in Buffalo left an indelible imprint on local fans who still
revere him as one of the team’s all-time greats.
Chris Garbarino was one of only a handful of people, and the only writer, Cookie allowed into his
inner circle. Cookie entrusted Chris with the task of telling his fascinating story, providing
unprecedented access to his home, family and unfinished memoirs. Chris has done Cookie proud,
offering a biography that goes so much deeper than the typical retelling of the life of a sports figure.
It’s a no-holsd-barred (sic), riveting account of one of the most fascinating figures in the history of the game.
Jeffrey J. Miller, author of Rockin’ the Rockpile,
Buffalo’s Forgotten Champions, and Game Changers.”
