BOOTS ON THE GROUND BY DUSK My Tribute to Pat Tillman

by | Read by Mary Tillman

Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Mary Tillman tells of the life and death of her son, NFL football player Patrick Tillman, who was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004. Tillman shares her grief in a slow, even voice and dolorous tones as she recounts how she mourns her son and copes with her emotions. In other chapters she describes her son's life as a well-known athlete. The pace of the memoir is uneven, especially the parts about Pat's death and the subsequent military cover-up. Tillman also highlights her own tenacity in every aspect of her life--as a soccer coach, a supportive mom, a grieving mom, and determined citizen. In all aspects of her performance Tillman brings her son's life and her quest for the truth to the listener. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
