“A Montreal-based author of a number of hockey books (mostly trivia and such), Weekes here brings together editorial and sports cartoons (as well as some photos, paintings and other visual media) in chronicling how Canada’s game has been depicted by the media over the years.

Throughout, Weekes tells the story of various sports pages/publications, the perception of hockey over the last century and some of the subjects of cartoonists and illustrators through the years. An ideal gift for your favourite hockey fan.”
