All Roads Lead to Hockey: Reports from Northern Canada to the Mexican Border

Synopsis

All Roads Lead to Hockey reflects Bill Boyd's lengthy odyssey across the North American continent in search of hockey's roots. From Barrie, Ontario, where he reflects on one of the best junior hockey teams, all the way to Laredo, Texas, where he investigates a thriving Hispanic hockey program, Boyd vividly portrays a transnational pastime. (Texas, it turns out, has more professional hockey teams than any other U. S. state or Canadian province.) All Roads Lead to Hockey features interviews with fans, current players, retired champions, and coaches, including hockey legend Jim Brophy. Through their words, Boyd captures hockey's timeless magic.
