Thanks for asking! I took a look through Amazon and WorldCat, and I also couldn't find a book with that exact title. Were you after Jerry Tagge's scrapbook-style history of Devaney's tenure at Nebraska? If so, you might take a look at Devaney, A Dynasty Remembered. The 'Birth of a Dynasty' title has wound up on histories of the '80 New York Islanders or the '96 Yankees, but I'm not seeing anything Husker-related. 

If the Tagge book is the one you're after, you can request it through that link to our online catalog or call 402-444-4800 to have it sent to the library branch closest to you. Thanks again for your question!

  1. Was just doing a google search and saw this. Devaney: Birth of a Dynasty is a book that I wrote for the Omaha World-Herald. You won't find it on Amazon, but Barnes and Noble and the OWH do sell it on line. The Omaha library should consider offering it. It's been a popular book in Nebraska since it came out in November, selling more than 3,000 copies and getting good reviews. You do stock Unbeatable, which is an earlier book the World-Herald published on Tom Osborne.

  2. Thanks! It's not often an author weighs in on these questions. I'll put in a suggestion for purchase. As an author, you can also reach out to our collection development staff by sending a cover letter and review copy - not that NU football history is ever a hard sell in this town!
