Beautiful Tribute to Hockey's most honored clubOct. 14 2009

This is the illustrated history the Canadiens deserved on the occasion of their centennial. From Michael Farber's spot-on introductory essay to the re-prints of such classic articles as Herbert Warren Wind's profile of Rocket Richard this book is a delight for any Habs fan and a book that any serious hockey fan should consider purchasing. The photographs are beautifully presented with a vast array of team memorabilia selected from the collection of The Hockey Hall of Fame as well as photos from many sources including the fabulous color photos shot by SI staffer Hy Peskin in the 1950s. I love this book and agree with most of their era by era team All-Star squads. Nice to see such a top notch hockey book produced south of the border.
