Being a diehard hockey fan and history teacher, I bought this book wanting to learn more of the history of the game, but the historical perspective of the establishment of blacks in Canada and the development of their communities is a great addition that I did not foresee.

If you are looking for chronicals of the games and league alone, this book is not for you. Only a few chapters are dedicated to these accounts. But, if you can appreciate historical ideas that may challenge your previous assumptions during this era, I would highly recommend, Black Ice.

I read a review on this book and thought the hockey lovers in our family would enjoy. I was correct. Lots of information on a little heard about subject. They highly recommend it for any sports lovers library.

A little long, but very informative. I had no idea that any of this went on way-back-when. I recommend this book.

As a Chicagoan, and Blackhawks fan, this history puts a lot of meat on the hockey bone and
the black Canadian history bone. Can anyone suggest other black Canadian reads?

The subject is very interesting but it was presented poorly. The writing was terrible and I tried to overlook that in order to get to the essence of the book but after awhile I gave up and never finished it. I would not recommend this book to anyone especially to purchase. This book belongs in my "reading for sitting on the toilet" category which is for when you gotta go to the toilet and you run around the house looking for something to read, anything and can't even a shopping catalogue but come across a book like this. I read it when I couldn't fall asleep and it wasn't important to keep up with the story because it was already so convoluted that it would help put me to sleep. I don't know how it could have been better presented, I'm a reader not a writer. Someone should have edited, someone should have proofread before inflicting this on the public.

i saw the story about this book that was shown on espn. As a student who is pursuing a masters in history and a loyal hockey fan, this book would have been a very interesting/enjoyable read for me. I am disappointed though that I cannot find this book anywhere. what gives amazon? I figured with the promotion of this book seen on espn this book would be readily available. thats not the case. i still hope to someday read this book as the authors have put vast amounts of time and effort in the rearching of this topic to write a great book of history.
