Northern Dancer  The Legendary Horse That Inspired a Nation, Chong, Kevin
8 Chong, Kevin Northern Dancer The Legendary Horse That Inspired a Nation
Toronto Viking 2014 0670067792 / 9780670067794 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Gift notation on half-title page, light edgewear to dust jacket. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; B&W Photographs; 9.06 X 6.30 X 1.26 inches; 304 pages; "While much has been written about Northern Dancer’s prepotence as a sire, this book is the only one devoted to his 1964 campaign, which saw him win two of the Triple Crown races in the U.S. and Canada’s Queen’s Plate. In that time, he captured the attention of the world and the hearts of all Canadians. In Northern Dancer, the world-famous horse comes alive through the people whose lives he touched: E.P. Taylor, the visionary industrialist whose web of business placed him at the end of every consumer transaction for every Canadian and made him the subject of scorn; Horatio Luro, the dapper Argentinean trainer (and tango dancer, pilot, and race car driver) who was notorious for his affairs with Hollywood starlets and his tender treatment of horses; and Bill Hartack, a wildly successful jockey whose squabbles with the press and his inability to conceal his unvarnished truth from influential owners and trainers was, by 1964, beginning to affect his career. Using news clippings from 1964 and interviews, this book offers novelistic detail not only on the remarkable 1964 Triple Crown and Queen’s Plate races, but also revisits, fifty years later, the era in which Canada was struggling to establish an identity, needing, more than anything, a national hero.

We already know what he means to the game. Now he shows us what the game means to him.From hockey's fierce early battles on natural ice; through its mythical golden era, where Howe, Richard, Béliveau, Hull, Orr, and Esposito defined greatness; through the unforgettable dynasties in Montreal, New York, and Edmonton and the success stories of today’s NHL, Gretzky takes us onto the ice and into the dressing room to share never-before-published stories about the great players and great characters who have inspired him.With the insight of someone who knows the incomparable thrill of lifting the Stanley Cup, as well as the agony of falling short against a bitter rival, Gretzky weaves in his own memories with the saga of the game that has meant so much to him.Warm, direct, and personal, these are accounts of friendship and rivalry, triumphs and upsets, role players and heroes. All of them great stories of the game."

And ...Howe!  An Authorized Autobiography, Howe, Gordie &  Colleen Howe &  Tom Delisle
15 Howe, Gordie & Colleen Howe & Tom Delisle And ...Howe! An Authorized Autobiography
Traverse City MI Power Play Pubns Inc 1995 0964714906 / 9780964714908 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Signed by All Authors; Light creasing top edge of DJ ; Signed by both Gordie and Colleen Howe. A bright, solid book dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; B&W Photographs; 9.21 X 5.98 X 1.89 inches; 428 pages; " Ask Bobby Orr who was the best ever, and he’ll tell you it was Gordie Howe. Ask Wayne Gretzky, and he’ll say the same thing. Big, skilled, mean, and nearly indestructible, Howe dominated the game and the record books for decades. Today he is still known as “Mr. Hockey,” and any bruising forward who can be relied upon to take his team on his shoulders hopes to be compared to the guy who wore number 9 for Detroit for so many years.But the fact is, there will never be another like Mr. Hockey. Certainly, no one has come close to matching his incredible 20 consecutive seasons among the top five scorers in the NHL. No one has come close to scoring 100 points after the age of 40. It seems impossible that anyone will ever again play for Team Canada against the Russians—and share the ice with his two sons. What seems even less likely is that another player will ever again suit up as a professional hockey player in six different decades.Still, Howe did not inspire generations of hockey players only by re-writing the record books, or by getting his name engraved on the league’s more coveted trophies. When fans and players alike talk about Gordie Howe, it’s not so much the player they revere, as the man. Despite his unyielding ferocity on the ice, Howe’s name has long been a byword for decency, generosity, and honesty off it. Even those who were too young to see him play know him as a man of his word, and a family man.Going back to Howe’s Depression-era roots, and following him through his Hall of Fame career, his enduring marriage to Colleen, his extraordinary relationship with his children, and into the present, Mr. Hockey is the definitive account of the game’s most incredible legacy.

Unsinkable; My Untold Story, Laumann, Silken
19 Laumann, Silken Unsinkable; My Untold Story
Toronto Harper Collins Canada 2014 1443419079 / 9781443419079 1st Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by Author; Small ding on back panel of dust jacket, only light edge wear ; Inscribed by author on front free end paper. A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; 9.06 X 6.06 X 1.26 inches; 292 pages; The autobiography of the amazing Olympic rower, who came back from a leg-shattering accident 10 weeks prior to the 1992 Summer Olympics to finish in the Bronze Medal position. Laumann talks about both her professional and personal life, her children and the break-up of her first marriage. "Just ten weeks before the 1992 Olympic Games, Silken Laumann, the reigning world champion in single sculls rowing, suffered a brutal accident that left her right leg shattered and useless. Doctors doubted that she would ever row competitively again. But twenty-seven days, five operations and countless hours of gruelling rehabilitation later, Silken was back in her racing shell, ready to pursue her dream. When the starter’s pistol rang out on August 2, she made the greatest comeback in Canadian sports history, rowing to a bronze-medal finish while the world watched, captivated by her remarkable story. Silken became one of Canada’s most beloved Olympians and has continued to inspire, encouraging people to dream, live in the moment and embrace life’s unexpected, difficult and amazing journey.But there was a massive barrier in her path that she has never before spoken about, a hidden story much darker than the tale of her accident. Now, Silken bravely shines a spotlight on all the obstacles she has encountered—and overcome—in Unsinkable, a memoir that reveals not only new insights into her athletic success and triumph over physical adversity, but also the intense personal challenges of her past and the fierce determination she applies to living a bold, loving and successful life today.Time after time, this courageous champion has proven to be unsinkable. Silken’s extraordinary story offers us an intimate look at the complicated woman behind the Olympic hero, showing how perseverance and optimism can allow anyone to embrace the incredible opportunities that often go hand in hand with adversity."
