With a voice as Canadian as winter, David Adams Richards reflects on the place of hockey in the Canadian soul.

The lyrical narrative of Hockey Dreams flows from Richards' boyhood games on the Miramichi to heated debates with university professors who dare to back the wrong team. It examines the globalization of hockey, and how Canadians react to the threat of foreigners beating us at "our" game.

Part memoir, part essay on national identity, part hockey history, Hockey Dreams is a meditation by one of Canada's finest writers on the essence of the game that helps define our nation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked it This is a memoir written by Davaid Adams Richards around the theme of hockey. The book is well written and carries his "voice" throughout. Sometimes said, often funny, this book chronicles his impressions of our National game and how it belonged to the boys and a girl, of the Miramichi as far back as 1961 , and how the game was slowly taken away by the Americans, media, owner agent, and tv. Avery good memoir and study of Canadians culture through hockey
