Summary: French Canadian hockey player Maurice Richard, "The Rocket," was the greatest player of his era and he remains an enduring icon of hockey excellence. Fans in Quebec province revered him and enthusiastically followed his matchless accomplishments. This book captures a world in which a brooding, taciturn athlete, who hated to speak publicly and rarely expressed opinions on anything, became a powerful, enduring symbol for French Canadians at a time when they felt painfully vulnerable amid Canada's English majority. The book is also about a young boy, Roch Carrier himself (the author), whose youthful worship of Richard was tempered by politics and personal life, and evolved into an entirely different sort of appreciation for an extraordinary man.
