A Canadian Saturday Night
Hockey and the Culture of A CountryBook - 2006
With heart and humor, popular hockey author Andrew Podnieks highlights the game's vital place in the fabric of daily life in Canada. Accompanied by stunning color images, the 65 "mini-essays" here bring to life the glorious events, objects, and artifacts that form the sport's collective memory -- tabletop hockey and backyard rinks, the heart-quickening drama of overtime goals, and the quiet majesty of the Zamboni. To flip through these pages is to wander through a museum brimming with hockey legend and lore.
