Children's Literature - Naomi Williamson
This well-written history of the New York Rangers is a title in the series "The NHL: History and Heroes." The Rangers franchise played its first game as a member of the National Hockey League in 1925 after sports promoter George (Tex) Rickard purchased the team to play in the Madison Square Garden. Without an official name, sportswriters labeled the team "Tex's Rangers" and it stuck, along with the nickname of the "Blueshirts" because of their at-home colors. Brief biographical information about the team's more famous players, such as Jean Ratelle, Frank Boucher, Vic Hadfield, Rod Gilbert, Wayne Gretsky, Brian Leetch, and coaches Mike Keenan and Lester Patrick as well as statistics about the team and players during the almost 85 years of this franchise are included. This team has had its ups and down during its long history, taking the Stanley Cup only four times. Winning the cup in 1940, it was to be 54 years before the Rangers would take the prize again. Action photographs taken on and off the ice provide a feel for the excitement of the game. An index provides a useful listing of players, trophies, championships, and general information about the team. Reviewer: Naomi Williamson
