Description

Like his critically acclaimed How Hockey Saved a Jew From the Holocaust and Hockey Mania and the Mystery of Nancy Running Elk, Wayne Frye once again scores with a book that uses hockey as a metaphor for life. This is a rousing rendition of how a group of young men became hockey legends. The fiery description of hockey games by Wayne Frye puts you right in the action. You can feel the cold of the ice slapping you in the face. You experience the tension before, during and after a game. You can sense the pain from a bone-crushing check. You can feel the bleeding wound from an errant stick that has opened up a gash on your chin. This book takes you inside the game, inside the heads of the players who built a legacy in the mists of time that endures to this day. These young men were more than hockey players. They were mighty warriors who went into battle against the foe with desire and determination that bordered on the fanatical. The reader gets into the heads of some extraordinary people, as this book is also about them as individuals, not just hockey players. At a time of budding knowledge and affirmation of intended life goals, these young men represented the very best of a whole generation from a time when the world was swiftly changing. Each rush up ice, each booming shot, each devastating check, each goal was an affirmation of what human beings are capable of when they dedicate themselves to a cause. These extraordinary young men were, as Wayne Frye says, "writing history with lightning."
