Ice Time: The Story of Hockey

by Michael McKinley

Published by Tundra Books, 2006
80 pages
ISBN: 9780887767623

Ages 10-14

How did hockey go from a game played on frozen ponds in Canada to a professional sport played in cities that never see snow and ice? Michael McKinley tells how in this enthusiastic history of modern ice hockey. McKinley chronicles hockey’s transition from local game to international sporting event, highlighting key players behind the scenes (such as Canada’s Governor-General Lord Stanley, who is behind the famous Stanley Cup) and on the ice, from the late 1800s through today. A book from a Canadian author and publisher is bound to have a Canadian bent, and so it is through that country’s lens that hockey’s history plays out. (The 1980 U.S. Men’s Team—the Olympic gold-medal-winning “Miracle on Ice”—is mentioned in a boxed sidebar.) But Canada is the hockey motherland and hockey enthusiasts will recognize the name of many hockey superstars the nation has produced. Ample photographs from throughout the history of modern hockey illustrate this engaging volume that gives ice time to women’s players and teams as well as men’s.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
