Children's Literature - Naomi Williamson
This well-written history of the Chicago Blackhawks is one title in the series "The NHL: History and Heroes." The Chicago Blackhawks' franchise in the National Hockey League was founded in 1926 when the Rosebuds of Portland, Oregon, were purchased by Major Frederick McLauglin, renamed the Blackhawks, and moved to Chicago. Placed under a "curse" at the end of the 1926-27 season, by coach Pete Muldoon when he was fired, the team struggled until the 1966-67 season before they finished first in the National Hockey League, even though they took the Stanley Cup three times in those years. Brief biographical information about the team's more famous players, such as Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Charlie Gardiner, Bill Mosienko, and Mike Keenan, as well as statistics about the team and players during the 80-plus years of this franchise, are included. Action photographs taken on and off the ice provide a feel for the excitement of the game. With the Stanley Cup as an ever-present goal, the Blackhawks struggled to remain contenders for this ultimate prize. An index provides a useful listing of players, trophies, championships, and general information about the team. Reviewer: Naomi Williamson
