By Lynda Baril. 2013
« Dans Nos Glorieuses, la journaliste et réalisatrice Lynda Baril nous révèle un pan complètement méconnu de notre sport national… et de l’histoire des femmes du Québec. Contrairement à la croyance populaire, les femmes ont été bien plus que des spectatrices. Dès la fin du XIXe siècle, elles ont chaussé leurs patins et formé des équipes. Durant la Première Guerre mondiale, elles attirent à Montréal jusqu’à 3000 spectateurs par match. Aujourd’hui, elles remportent des médailles d’or olympiques et sont plus nombreuses que jamais sur la glace. Des témoignages et plus de 200 photos, illustrations, documents d’époque, dont plusieurs inédits, relatent la longue et fascinante histoire de Nos Glorieuses. » -- 4e de couv.

By Murray Howe. 2017
Unlike his two brothers, Murray Howe failed in his attempt to follow in his father's footsteps to become a professional… athlete. Yet, his failure brought him to the realization that in truth, his dream wasn't to be a pro hockey player. His dream was to be his father, Gordie Howe. To be amazing at something, but humble and gracious. To be courageous, and stand up for the little guy. To be a hero. You don't need to be a hockey player to do that. What he learned was that it is a waste of time wishing you were like someone else. We need to identify and embrace our gifts. Gordie Howe may have been the greatest player in the history of hockey, but greatness was never defined by goals or assists in the Howe household. Greatness meant being the best person you could be, not the best player on the ice. Bestseller. 2017.
