Home Game delves into hockey in all its incarnations, from life in a small hockey community and the dreams of amateurs determined to reach the NHL to the reminiscences of players involved in the 1972 Canada-Soviet series. By exploring hockey’s significance to our nation, Dryden and MacGregor help to define what it means to be Canadian.

Review quote

“The closest thing the game has to a literary masterpiece.” –Sun (Vancouver) “This book will be the gauge against which future [sports books] will be measured.…And it’s not just a hockey book; it’s a book about Canadians and what makes us tick.” –Leader-Post (Regina) “The tale of hockey is told like never before. This is the hockey book of the decade, if not the century.” –Telegraph-Journal (Saint John) “Dryden and MacGregor have penned a tremendous read.…you’ll be moved to take up skating again. Fans of hockey won’t be disappointed and fans of Canadiana shouldn’t miss it.” –Hamilton Spectator “Go out right now and buy this book.” –Mercury (Guelph) From the Hardcover edition.
