9780887767623: Ice Time: The Story of Hockey

Hockey is breathtakingly fast and fascinating. Ice Time: The Story of Hockey (Temps de glace: l’histoire du hockey) traces the sport from its hotly contested origins to the present day’s first-ever lockout of players by the one remaining league. It covers the sport’s surge in popularity after 1875, when it moved to inside rinks; the rise and fall, and rise again, of women’s hockey; the sagas of long-lost leagues, such as the Pacific Coast Hockey Association; and more recently the World Hockey Association. Through its lavishly illustrated pages skate the players, the coaches, and the almost forgotten legends who are the reason why we love the game.

Although the book stands alone, it is based on Hockey: A People’s History, a ten-part CBC/Radio Canada series airing in fall 2006.

About the Author:

The author of Putting a Roof on Winter and The Magnificent One: The Mario Lemieux Story, Michael McKinley is also a journalist, a documentary filmmaker, and a screenwriter. A Vancouver native, he was educated at the University of British Columbia and at Oxford University. His journalism has appeared in England, the US, and Canada, including the Guardian, Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Times, and the National Post. He has also written and produced several documentaries for CNN and an episode of South Park.

After studies in Physical Education, Suzanne Lévesque obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in German Studies and a Master’s Degree in Translation from l’Université de Montréal. She also studied Linguistics at the Universität Saarbrücken, in Germany. Working as a freelancer since 1988, she has translated numerous documents in various fields — administrative, legal, advertising, tourism, etc. — and, on several occasions, juvenile literature for Tundra Books. In her free time, she enjoys playing tennis, cycling, and skiing around Montreal, her hometown.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—Canada gave birth to hockey, which has become one of the most popular sports in the world today. McKinley discusses the history of the game, from the Dominion Challenge Trophy (better known as the Stanley Cup) donated by Lord Stanley with the hope of uniting Canada by gathering its teams for competitions in 1892, to modern times with heroes like Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux. Other athletes are introduced, and readers can follow the detailed stories of past prominent games through the numerous black-and-white and full-color photographs and illustrations. Seeing pictures of equipment used by hockey players in the early 20th century will make readers appreciate how far the sport has come. Women's hockey is mentioned briefly, but predominantly the book focuses on the history of Canadian men's leagues and the NHL. This well-researched book will be useful where the sport is popular.—Michael Giller, South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville
