Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As described by sports columnist Milt Dunnell in the introduction, "a picture is worth a thousand words." Indeed, this is a pictorial history of hockey, with over 300 photographs. Editor Diamond has compiled a superior collection of photos (compared to existing literature), using the half million images from the Hockey Hall of Fame's archives. The text is easy to read and informative. The study certainly captures the essence of the sport, with sections on the legends, women, and international, semipro, and amateur play. Added features include a list of individuals inducted into the Hall of Fame. As a superb assortment of snapshots, The Spirit of the Game will be relished by aficionados. Since the sport covers the width and breadth of North America, this is essential for all public libraries.L.R. Little, Penticton P.L., B.C.
