The author’s personal memoir of a youngster’s late 1950s participation on a championship New England town hockey team composed of WWII veterans, and traces that boy’s life and connection to hockey across almost sixty years. It is a ground-breaking study of aging while playing contact sports and reflects upon the famed WWII generation, pond hockey, black ice, and the hockey towns and teams of New England. Few books are written about hockey; fewer expound fully on its special qualities as a sport. SEAHAWK is such a book.
A fine literary descendant of Jack Falla’s Home Ice and Peter Gzowski’s The Game of Our Lives. Like any good hockey book, it teaches us more about the world than hockey itself.–Dave Bidini, author of Tropic of Hockey and The Best Game You Can Name
A compellingly intimate sports book that will hopefully become a movie, Seahawk has the breadth, depth, and power to be read for generations.–Tom Clarie, author of the award-winning Explorers educational game and an Egyptian history titled A Lighthouse for Alexandria.
