My name is Darrel Campbell and I had the amazing opportunity to step into the life and legacy of Pistol Pete Maravich. Years ago I was asked to write a screenplay about Pete Maravich's life. During my numerous visits with Pete and his father Press Maravich, I was extremely fortunate to collect several audio cassette tapes filled with our conversations. The transcripts of the tapes combined with my many notes, letters, and communications with Pete and Press make up the bulk of the content of this new book.

This is a one-of-a-kind telling of Pete and Press Maravich's personal story. At its core this book is about heroes who influence and encourage people to reach their potential. It is a behind the scenes look at the unique father and son relationship between Coach Maravich and Pistol Pete.

Pete Maravich was a complex person. He dodged death, suffered through tragedy, and attained wealth, fame, and love from adoring fans and family. There was also a spiritual and mystical component to the internal makeup of the unique American sports hero. I was privileged to experience much of the last few years of his life and what I saw, heard and experienced changed my life forever.
