Much more than just a game, hockey is a way of life in Canada. Hockey in the 20th century has developed into an obsession for millions of fans. From the rage of the Richard Riots to the joy of the Miracle on Ice, from the original Lord Stanley to the incomparable Wayne Gretzky, 101 Years of Hockey covers it all. Whether it is the endurance of Gordie Howe or the short-lived magic of Mario Lemieux, it is a game that revels in both its artistry and its ferocity. As the Original Six has ballooned to thirty teams, traditional NHL rivalries now collide with issues of free-agency and television revenue, yet the game continues to thrive. The Cold War passions of the 1980 Summit Series gave way to the Canada/USA finals at the World Cup. Written by five of Canada's leading hockey journalists and filled with over 400 spectacular photos, 100 Years of Hockey is a colourful and insightful history of the world's fastest game. General Editor, Al Strachan has compiled a lavishly illustrated, expertly written, coffee table book documenting the history of Canada's game.
