"If you base everything on the truth and doing the right thing everything else is secondary."
“One Thousand Showers” is a true story about an NCAA Division I coach’s battle against the Reno, Nevada "system".
Terri Patraw was a highly successful Division I soccer coach with the requisite aggressive, scrappy personality. Terri was at the top of her game when she was suddenly thrown into the battle of her life.
"This book is an eye-opening look into the politics, nepotism and lies of an athletic program and legal system out-of-control." - Amazon Review
The story touches on the dark side of the state of Nevada. Just when Terri had exhausted all other avenues, she turned to the judicial system to be the final arbiter of justice only to be disappointed to learn that they were perhaps the worst of the bunch.
This fascinating story is straight out of today’s headlines - Lance Armstrong, Penn State, Rutgers, Mike Leach, University of Miami, and others and will turn heads nationally.
