Item Details

Maurice Richard, The Rocket, was one of the greatest hockey players of his era and he remains an enduring icon of hockey excellence. This book captures a world in which a brooding, taciturn athlete became a powerful, enduring symbol for French Canadians. It also follows the story of a young boy, the author himself, 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. Winner of the 2003 CNIB Torgi Award. 2001.
