Synopsis:

Following in the tradition of Sports Illustrated's gorgeous, best-selling coffee-table books, The Hockey Book is destined to captivate not only hockey mavens but also all sports fans. No sport has produced more astounding photography, and this hardbound 256-page volume brings readers into the guts of the game, chronicling the careers of immortals such as Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, and Wayne Gretzky. The book dips into hockey's hardscrabble roots, long before goalies wore masks or skaters wore helmets and when ungentle teams such as Philadelphia's Broad Street Bullies battled their way to the Stanley Cup. It also brings to life what is perhaps the most memorable sporting event of the 20th century: Team USA upsetting Russia and winning gold at the1980 Olympics in Lake Placid. The Hockey Book's oversized photos are accompanied by an extraordinary collection of stories, from a stable of writers that includes William Faulkner, George Plimpton, four-time National Magazine Award-winner Gary Smith, and longtime Sports Illustrated pucks writer Michael Farber, himself a Hockey Hall of Fame inductee. Sports Illustrated shoots and scores with this collection.

A beautifully displayed and written book including the way it was, to the way it is
