Dream Season is the true story of Gary Pearn's senior year of high school playing basketball in the small farm community of Ashland, Illinois, and of his teammates and 18 classmates who were all seniors in 1957. Gary, the author’s brother, played guard; the other guard was his teammate Jerry Conner. Jerry went on to become first a sportswriter for the Chicago Tribune, and later a professor of Law at the University of Minnesota.
The author began this book ten years ago as a tribute to his brother, who passed away in 2003.
