Hockey Hall of Fame Legends is an exquisite, full-colour book featuring the mesmerizing imagery created by photographer Derik Murray in concert with Michael McKinley's lyrical text. Together they evoke the drama, passion and triumph of hockey, combining historical research with the spirit of myth and legend. The book captures the essence of hockey's personality over the past century, following the game from its romantic origins on the frozen lakes and ponds of Canada to its robust, barnstorming years at the turn of the century and onward to the Jazz Age, World War II, the golden era of the "Original Six," and the heady days of expansion.The pages of this remarkable book are graced by hockey's greatest names - "Cyclone" Taylor, Howie Morenz, "Rocket" Richard, Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull and Ken Dryden to name only a few - all members of the Hockey Hall of Fame. The book's tapestry of images and words brings to life the exhilarating and sometimes heartbreaking hockey events of their lives, and offers an intimate and unique viewpoint of history in the making.
