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
