Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada
In October 1983 Ken Dryden gave us what was called the best non-fiction book ever written about hockey - "The Game." In that same month Roy MacGregor published what was hailed as the best novel ever written about hockey - "The Last Season." In 1989 these two writers teamed up to write another extraordinary book: inspired by Ken Dryden's major CBC-TV series on hockey, "Home Game" takes us all the way from street hockey to the showdowns between Canada and the Soviets.
On publication, "Home Game" shot to the top of the bestseller lists, establishing itself as must reading for every hockey fan. Not only was this lavish book with over 95 full-colour photographs popular among ordinary Canadians: book reviewers loved it.
