Who was Maurice the man, and who was Mad Dog the character? Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon was a gold medalist, a pro-wrestling legend, and a pop culture icon - but he was also a son, husband, and father. Mad Dog explores Vachon''s career and personal struggles with painstakingly detailed historical research and through both Maurice''s own recollections and those of the people who knew him best.

As a young man, Maurice could have chosen a dark criminal path, but then wrestling and family changed him.

With a foreword by his brother, Paul Vachon, and an afterword by his widow, Kathie Vachon.
