Hockey's Greatest Players

Front Cover
Random House, 1999 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 45 pages
As she did in Baseball's Greatest Hitters, Baseball's Greatest Pitchers, and Basketball's Greatest Players, S. A. Kramer looks back at the lives and careers of hockey's greatest players, with a special focus on when they were kids. From Gordie Howe (so shy, he wouldn't go into a store alone to buy an ice cream) to Bobby Hull (who could never play well enough to please his father) to Jacques Plante (so poor he had to knit his own clothes) to Bobby Orr ("too small to ever play professionally") to Wayne Gretzky, center for the New York Rangers (who was the subject of a Canadian television special when he was just 10-years old!), Kramer covers them all (plus a few more) with the style and accuracy that's quickly making her a name among sports writer.
