About the Author

Mike Leonetti has written more than twenty-five books, including best-selling hockey titles such as Hockey Now, Maple Leaf Legends, Canadiens Legends, and Maple Leafs Top 100. He has also written several best-selling children's picture books, including My Leafs Sweater, A Hero Named Howe, Number Four, Bobby Orr, and Wendel and the Great One. He owns an extensive archive of hockey photographs and memorabilia-including the Harold Barkley Archives-and is a walking encyclopedia of Maple Leafs trivia. He lives in Woodbridge, Ontario.

Harold Barkley was a pioneer of sports photography. Covering three decades worth of NHL hockey for the Toronto Star during the golden era of the Original Six, he was the first to use an electronic flash to take stop-action hockey pictures and he developed special equipment for shooting colour.

For close to twenty seasons, Jean Béliveau was “the gentle giant” centreman and captain of the fabled Montréal Canadiens during the team’s glory years in the 1950s and 1960s. Retiring from active play in 1971, he went on to a successful twenty-two-year career as the Canadien’s senior vice-president of corporate affairs and to life-long service as a goodwill ambassador for the sport.

Format: Hardcover
This book is filled with anecdotes and absolutely stunning photographs. Any hockey fan would love it. I knew Gordie Howe and Johnny Bower a bit when I was a teen, I grew up in Saskatoon and went to Howe's old school and also ate burgers at Bower's joint in Waskisiu, so obviously the cover photo grabbed me. There is an excellent section by Phil Esposito on The Summit which is very funny. Those guys were quite the characters. Hockey was so different then, not so professional. I mean can you imagine a star flipping burgers or working as an assistant golf pro today?
