It was St. Patrick's Day, that late-winter carousal when French Montrealers pinned shamrocks over their fleurs-de-lis and joinned their Irish bretheren to celebrate the fifth-century missionary who freed Ireland from its snakes. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Excellent book, but minor issues 20. August 2009
Von Matthew Lerner - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
A well written book that has extensive details on the early formation of hockey. Includes details that are hard to find in any other book. Great for learing about the pre-NHL history of the game, as well as some of the lesser known, and shadier, aspects of the Original Six era. Also offers a short description of the Summit Series, possibly one of the most defining tournaments in sports history.

The only problems I had with the book were few and far between. A lack of a bibliography stands out, which would have been nice for someone hoping to look further into the subject at hand. I also sawk, in one chapter at least (about Cyclone Taylor), what looked like a clear case of plagerism, with a whole paragraph lifted out of another book written about Taylor (Cyclone Taylor: A Hockey Legend, by Eric Whitehead). There were also several factual errors, with the author giving the wrong years for players winning awards in nearly every occassion. One that stood out for me was stating that Syl Apps was the first winner of the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year in 1937 when Carl Voss was the inaugural winner in 1933. This happened several times, and by the end I was becoming concerned that if the author couldn't get these simple dates correct, what other parts of the book are wrong, specifically parts that aren't so easy to find a source for.

Regardless, the book is excellent for anyone looking to learn how hockey rose from nothing to become the sport that it is today.

Outstanding Read! 28. September 2004
Von K. Buksnes - Veröffentlicht auf
I have read many books that detail the history of the great game of Hockey, but none was better written than this book. Mr. McKinley tells the history in a way that is easy to follow and entertaining to read. Where many of the hockey history books are confusing to follow, this one is a joy to read. I have read through the book twice already and will surely revisit the book many times in the future. Highly recommend!
