Perhaps nowhere in America did three distinct and diverse cultures create such a colorful tapestry of the social fabric which forms the backdrop of this book.

Bulldogs Forever is a history of a New Mexico school, Albuquerque High School, from its founding in 1879 to the author's graduation in 1954. The book effectively relates the reflections of teenagers from the waning pioneer days of the late 19th century to the Golden Era that followed World War II.

The author, an outstanding athlete, relates how the team sports of football, basketball and baseball played a major role in the feeling of togetherness, belonging and accomplishment in a school of culturally diverse students.

Bulldogs Forever pays tribute to teachers, coaches, teammates and students in a nostalgic look at high school life.


Born in Green Bay, Wisconsin, H. L. (Buster) Quist began his writing career in 1993 when he published TRENDS, a nationally distributed newsletter primarily focused on social, political and economic events.

His first book, SECRETS, A Novel of Golf and Politics, published in 2000, is a mystery which is principally set in New Mexico and features a creative and memorable surprise ending. The author has also written a history of his high school that concludes with a memoir of his three years there in the 50s.

Buster was a two-time NCAA All-American in Track & Field, a member of four U.S. Track & Field Teams and a gold medal winner and record holder in the javelin in the 1959 Pan American Games. He is the founder of REDISCOVER AMERICA!, which is a passionate call to re-establish the moral and ethical values of the 50s.
