Praised by reviewers, Gordie: A Hockey Legend has been a best seller in both hardcover and paperback, and it remains the only full-length biography to cover Gordie Howe's entire playing career. In the introduction, author Roy MacSkimming recounts Gordie and Colleen Howe's reactions to this unauthorized biography, relates Howe's many attempts to retire, and describes the tragic illness that afflicted Colleen Howe and transformed the couple's life together. Gordie reminds us of Howe's enduring importance in the rapidly changing world of hockey.
