Originally written in French, author Alain Usereau has published an English version of "L'Epoque Glorieuse des Expos," "The Expos in Their Prime." The seasons covered are 1977-1984. During this stretch, the Expos became Canada's team. Having very good players and winning records had the Expos, several times, drawing over two million fans and having over fifty thousand fans at some games. Contained are interviews with former Expos and details of each season. As the team's popularity grew, Blue Jays owners had Expos broadcasts blocked in Toronto. This displeased Expos fans living there. Great book.

I enjoyed learning about the history of the franchise. However, there are portions of the book that are not well written - run-on sentences, quotes that needed to be cleaned up, etc. Lots of cool facts and tidbits about the expos, but it did not flow as smoothly as I hoped.
