Leatherheads of the North

The True Story of Ernie Nevers and the Duluth Eskimos

by Chuck Frederick


Leatherheads of the North tells the fascinating story of Ernie Nevers and the Duluth Eskimos, the team NFL president Joe Carr said “saved the NFL” and legendary Chicago Bears coach George Halas called “the greatest football team ever put together.” Frederick takes readers down on the field, inside the locker room, and outside the stadium to share the team’s notorious on and off the field exploits, from the early years sponsored by Kelley-Duluth Hardware through their storied 1926–1927 barnstorming season and beyond.

Praise for this book:

“Never before has the Eskimos’ story been told with such drama and detail. A great read.”

— Legendary Minnesota Vikings Coach Bud Grant
