Classic storytelling, the perfect book for every hockey fan. Bill Boyd delivers another great collection of stories about the national game-profiles of players and coaches, teams and hockey towns. From Northern Canada to the Mexican border, Bill Boyd travelled thousands of miles in search of the roots of the game. - In Barrie, Ontario, he takes a look back at one of the best junior hockey teams and describes the tragic end of one of its best players - Next, he travels to a reserve outside The Pas, Manitoba, to report on one of the only native-owned teams in Canada - Boyd spans the continent: Warroad, Minnesota, which calls itself "Hockeytown USA" - South to Laredo, Texas, on the Mexico border, to investigate a thriving hockey program with Hispanic players and fans. Texas, it turns out, has more professional hockey teams than any other state or province. From Fredericton, New Brunswick, for the Canadian University 2004 Hockey Championships, to Michigan State University to cover the American hockey program, Bill Boyd interviews current players and retired champions and coaches who live and breath hockey. Includes interviews with hockey legends such as John Brophy, former coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs and most successful minor league coach in history.
