Book Description

March 15 2010

Canada has done it! With the women’s Olympic hockey team winning back-to-back Olympic championships and the men’s team recapturing the gold they claimed in Salt Lake City, sports enthusiasts across the nation will be celebrating double gold at the Vancouver Olympics. In commemoration of yet another Hockey Canada triumph, Fenn Publishing, in association with Hockey Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee, is printing a special edition, instant book that recounts the road to the gold medals.

CANADIAN GOLD?an all-encompassing guide to both the men’s and women’s Olympic hockey tournaments, as well as a preview of the amazing Paralympic sledge hockey team?is being released and shipped to retailers across the nation just days after the Vancouver 2010 Closing Ceremonies. The manuscript, which veteran hockey author Andrew Podnieks finished just hours after the Gold medal ceremony for the men’s ice hockey event, will tell the story of Canada’s two Gold medal hockey teams. Podnieks has been in Vancouver for the entirety of the games and has been planning the book since late fall of 2009. Featuring 184 pages of stats, biographies, game highlights, full-colour photography, and insider information, CANADIAN GOLD is a minute-by-minute look at the path to the podium.

Review

On Canada’s olympic hockey history
?
“a compelling coffee table book. Our hockey heritage is beautifully crafted and photographed inside the 256 pages.” ? the Hamilton Spectator
?
“a hockey-lover`s trivia treasure chest for all ages.” ? Globe and Mail
?
“rich in photos, anecdotes and statistics, the book profiles much more than the seven championships of canadian men’s teams since 1920 and the two titles earned since 1998 by our woman. In a broader way, it examines canada’s influence on the international games, and how this country has sown the seeds of hockey worldwide. A lively and educational primer for your olympic hockey viewing.” ? Dave Stubbs, Montreal Gazette

By Bruce
I found this listing just after the Games ended and had it in hand by the third week of March 2010. Fantastic book dealing with Canada's hockey experience at the Games. It was great to immediately relive those events and the price was right. Beautiful photographs and text. It's a must for any fan of Canadian Olympics Hockey participation.
