Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Thursday evening at Eau Claire Regis High Schoo, Mickey Crowe signs copies of a book about his life, "Over And Back: Mickey Crowe," written by Appleton Post-Crescent sportswriter Brett Christopherson.
The book chronicles the ups and downs of Crowe's life. Mickey Crowe was a high school basketball phenom during the 1970's, who is still number two on Wisconsin's high school career scoring list.
"Things went really well in high school that made that possible," says Crowe, "and with the help of Brett doing this book I'm really in a positive position again in life that I hope will benefit me and benefit others to learn from my story."
"Everybody knew the basketball career, but then what happened," says Christopherson, "he disappeared, and talking about the mental illness, the depression, and the dependency on drugs and alcohol. It's finally all out there. The questions have been answered and it's been a form of therapy for him, and that's really been the rewarding thing for me as we put this book together."
