The story of Minnesota's most winning coach and 2014 National High School Hall of Fame inductee, Bob McDonald, is told in this new book.


Minnesota's legendary coach recounts his early struggles with his personal history; growing up on Minnesota's Iron Range; his thoughts on the game of basketball; and, his beliefs in the value of community and family.


History and life in northeastern Minnesota provide the back drop for this story of the man who compiled a lifetime record of 1,012-428 during his 59 years of coaching basketball.


Despite difficult times throughout his life's journey, Coach McDonald's story is of one of not only Travels and Tribulations, but triumphs as well.
