Book Description

Oct. 27 2008

Peter C. Newman called him "the Totem of the Titans." From a small Prairie town, Daryl K. "Doc" Seaman became an icon of Canadian business and hockey. He is one of the last of a breed of postwar entrepreneurs and sportsmen who forged modern Canada, striking deals on a handshake and always keeping their word.

After flying 82 combat missions during the Second World War, Doc Seaman worked in the oil industry with his brothers, turning a small Alberta drilling business into a global giant, Bow Valley Industries. Later, he led a group that brought the Atlanta Flames to Calgary. Still a Flames co-owner, he helped reshape Hockey Canada and restore Canadas glory in international hockey.

Doc Seamans life is a remarkable saga of courage, resolve, generosity, and success. It ultimately leaves us not only with a deep appreciation of one iconic Canadian but also with a wider understanding of our country.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read March 19 2009
Format:Hardcover
A terrific read about a wonderful man. Doc was certainly one of a kind and never lost his 'common' touch. His story is masterfully told and hopefully will inspire many young entreprenuers to start and stay in the game!
