SORT BY Relevancy
In a nutshell, the author, Gaines Baty, is a Dallas-area CEO and former all-conference football player at Texas Tech. Several years ago, he began doing some research to write a book about the dad he never really got an opportunity to know -- All-American Texas A&M QB Buryl Baty. Long story short, Baty was an all-everything quarterback and local hero who left A&M to serve in WWII. He came back after the war in Europe, re-enrolled, won big, was drafted by the NFL's Detroit Lions, shunned professional football and chose instead to coach at an impoverished school (Bowie High) in El Paso. There, he took a group of Mexican American kids who'd never won a thing or really been fought for in any way (Baty took a real stand against some deep-seated bigotry before anything like a civil rights movement began) and not only greatly shaped their character, but led them to multiple championships. Then, just as they were preparing to win a third, he was killed in an auto accident on a scouting trip. He was 30 years old (a few of the many pics we have are below). Gaines was just three.
50 years later, Gaines embarked on a journey to get to know his dad and tell his story. He interviewed dozens of his former players (who say he completely changed their lives and the course of destiny for their families for generations) and those he played against (he was a contemporary of guys like the legendary Doak Walker and Tom Landry and played them toe to toe. Hall of Fame coach Raymond Berry says, in fact, that Baty was the best back he ever coached). Sept.15 -- Oct. 15 being Hispanic Heritage Month, btw, and the ongoing immigration debate makes what he did all the more relevant.
The book comes highly recommended by the likes of Roger Staubach

Nationally-recognized award-winning animal behaviorist Bryan Bailey (“The Wolf Whisperer”) will appear on FOX & FRIENDS on Monday, November 16th. During the live segment on Fox News Channel, scheduled for 6:50am EST, Bailey will discuss his new book, Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, and demonstrate a protection scenario with an 80 lb. German Shepherd security dog.
In Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, Bailey explains that for all that man has done to carve the wolf from the wild to create a surrogate human, today’s dog is still a wolf at heart. Bailey emphasizes the damaging and paralytic problem of attaching our human traits to our pets.
“This book is about developing a deep understanding of the authors of your dog’s behavior - nature and the wolf,” explains Bailey. “In doing so, you will truly learn who and what your dog really is and the whys and hows of its behavior. You will learn how activating and deactivating the natural, wolf-like impulses and mechanisms in your dog will lead to the harmonious existence and the control you always dreamed of.”
Bailey is a nationally-certified Master Trainer and Pharmacotherapy Behaviorist and decorated veteran of the U.S. Navy, working extensively as a supervisor and trainer for the U.S. Navy’s classified dolphin and sea lion projects. He has studied wolves in the wild, trained law enforcement dogs for narcotics detection and search and rescue, and much more.
