Summary

Sweet Home Alabama — the skies are blue and the history is deep. Its distinctive culture stands as a pinnacle of the Deep South with a football team that has won more than 15 national championships, tasty local specialties like pulled pork and fried dill pickles, and a southern drawl that’s sweet as Sorghum molasses. 
 
But there’s more to Alabama than what meets the eye. Before Alabama became one of the shining stars on the American flag, its history had already begun. Alabama 200 years ago was a very different place. Before Alabama was even a speck in the eyes of white settlers, native populations thrived upon its rich red soil. But when Europeans landed in the New World, everything changed and the gears of modern history began to turn. 
 
While Alabama seems to be a place to sleepily lounge in the sun and watch the world rush by, its own history was anything but lethargic. Once the ball toward statehood began rolling in Alabama, little could stop it. Alabama seemingly had a hand in every major event in U.S. history, from the Revolutionary War to the Civil Rights movement to current events with history in the making, and everything in between. 
 
In “Events That Changed the Course of History: The Story of Alabama Becoming a State 200 Years Later”, you’ll learn how this underdog of a state that is often written off has a unique and ever-changing history that will surely leave you wanting to visit and see the history for yourself.

    In the deep zone, even the very best player can find it impossible to beat a foe who’s hungry and waiting. . . .  
    Troy White can predict a play before it happens. Star quarterback on his state football team, Troy’s a natural for the 7-on-7 tournament that’s being held at the Super Bowl in Miami. With any luck, his “football genius” will also be working for the Atlanta Falcons on that big day. 
    Ty Lewis is a wide receiver with exceptional speed. His brother, an NFL star, says getting on a 7-on-7 team will prove Ty’s a winner. 
    From the moment the two football champs cross paths, Troy and Ty begin to size each other up. Troy is suspicious of Ty’s interest in his friend Tate, while Ty worries his speed will never be a match for Troy’s game smarts. But when the two rivals find themselves somehow tangled in the same dangerous web of deceit, they discover that they have more in common than their skill at football. 
    Uniting Troy, first seen in the New York Times bestselling Football Genius, and Ty, who was chased by the Mafia in Football Hero, Tim Green’s Deep Zone delivers it all—vivid settings, dynamic characters, and high-stakes action on and off the field.
