Book Summary:

The complete story of the Edmonton Oilers--from Wayne Gretzky and the dynasty years, to Connor McDavid and the future, and everything in between. When the Edmonton Oilers joined the NHL in 1979, the team owner, Peter Pocklington, proclaimed they would win their first Stanley Cup within five years. A bold statement that turned out to be half right: they not only won the Cup in 1984, but won it four more times over the next six years, forging one of the most dominant dynasties ever. The Oilers have always been a team of determination--fast scoring, hard hitting, and creative hockey that has earned them loyal fans across North America. The team has faced adversity, both on and off the ice. As a small market team, the Oilers have struggled to compete in the NHL, but always found a way. From the biggest trade in history that saw the Great One leave for L.A., to the eleventh hour negotiations that kept the team in Edmonton with a cadre of thirty-seven passionate owners--there is no club like it. And now with super star Connor McDavid leading the roster there's never been greater promise for the future. With forty years of NHL action to celebrate, acclaimed sports writer Lorna Schultz Nicholson takes a journey back to the Oiler's phenomenal highs and challenging lows, the larger than life characters and amazing records, to tell the remarkable story of the hardest working club in the game. Fully illustrated with rare and exciting images, and published in full partnership with the Edmonton Oilers, this is the must have book for Oilers fans, and hockey fans, everywhere.

Book Summary:

No commander during the Civil War is more closely identified with the "cavalier mystique" as Major General J.E.B. (Jeb) Stuart. And none played a more prominent role during the brief period when the hopes of the nascent Confederacy were at their apex, when it appeared as though the Army of Northern Virginia could not be restrained from establishing Southern nationhood. Jeb Stuart was not only successful in leading Robert E. Lee's cavalry in dozens of campaigns and raids, but for riding magnificent horses, dressing outlandishly, and participating in balls and parties that epitomized the "moonlight and magnolia" image of the Old South. Longstreet reported that at the height of the Battle of Second Manasses, Stuart rode off singing, "If you want to have good time, jine the cavalry . . ." Porter Alexander remembered him singing, in the midst of the miraculous victory at Chancellorsville, "Old Joe Hooker, won't you come out of the Wilderness?" Stuart was blessed with an unusually positive personality--always upbeat, charming, boisterous, and humorous, remembered as the only man who could make Stonewall Jackson laugh, reciting poetry when not engaged in battle, and yet never using alcohol or other stimulants. Year of Glory focuses on the twelve months in which Stuart's reputation was made, following his career on an almost day-to-day basis from June 1862, when Lee took command of the army, to June 1863, when Stuart turned north to regain a glory slightly tarnished at Brandy Station, but found Gettysburg instead. It is told through the eyes of the men who rode with him, as well as Jeb's letters, reports, and anecdotes handed down over 150 years. It was a year like no other, filled with exhilaration at the imminent creation of a new country. This was a period when it could hardly be imagined that the cause, and Stuart himself, could dissolve into grief, Jeb ultimately separated from the people he cherished most. REVIEWS Akers covers the period from the late spring of 1862 through the opening movements of the Gettysburg Campaign. . . . He covers, almost on a daily basis, Stuart's movements, his battles, his relationships with his subordinates and men, his letters to his wife Flora, and his perception from his soldiers and the press. Akers' writing style is crisp and his narrative flows well. --Scott Mingus, in "Cannonball" "...a great addition to your Civil War library. This detailed and colorful study follows Stuart from June 1862 to June 1863 when his rising star paralleled that of the Confederacy....one of those rare books not only worth reading but rereading." North South Traders Civil War "reads well, with a fast paced narrative of events....useful illustrations including a section of handsome color photographs." America's Civil War "...recounts the year from June 1862 to June 1863, during which Stuart reached his highest popularity. The story is told in sharp detail, and excellent anecdotes spice the already vigorous writing, which rushes forward with breakneck speed to the inevitable conclusion of hubris before the battle of Gettysburg. Even if you are not a history buff, this book will rivet your attention as it highlights this fascinating icon of the Civil War." City Book Review Aker's animated writing style places the reader within Jeb Stuart's inner circle as they gather around the campfire singing a popular melody or conferring over future combat operations. For the student of Civil War history, this work provides a deeper understanding of one of the most intriguing leaders and characters of the war...a great addition to any Civil War Collection." MILITARY REVIEW Akers does have an exciting story to tell, and he tells it in a clear, colloquial style. The narrative begins with Stuart's famously risky 'ride around McClellan' just before the Seven Days' battles. The story moves quickly from one major battle to another: Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. At this last battle Stuart reached his apogee, as he was called on take over the Second Corps after the wounding of the renowned Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson. . . . For those who wish to see the Confederacy as the 'land of Cavaliers,' Akers is your guide, with Jeb Stuart as his beau ideal." --The Journal of Southern History This is the year that JEB Stuart and his cavalry rode circles around the Army of the Potomac and basically made the Union commanders look like a bunch of dummies. They also made a lot of raids on Union supply trains and depots areas. The Confederate cavalry rained supreme that year. Lone Star Book Review A portrait of the changing mood in the Confederacy, from the overly optimist days of 1862, caused by Lee's victories and Union failings in Virginia (and a general belief that the South had the superior soldiers), to the increasingly grim days of 1863, where victories came at an increasing cost" History of War

Book Summary:

National Bestseller The definitive history of the Montreal Canadiens – to coincide with their Centenary in 2009. Before there were slapshots, Foster Hewitt, or even an NHL, there were the Canadiens. Founded on December 4, 1909, the team won its first Stanley Cup in 1916. Since then, the Canadiens have won 23 more championships, making them the most successful hockey team in the world. The team has survived two wars, the Great Depression, NHL expansion, and countless other upheavals, thanks largely to the loyalty of fans and an extraordinary cast of players, coaches, owners, and managers. The Montreal Canadiens captures the full glory of this saga. It weaves the personalities, triumphs, heartaches, and hysteria into a compelling narrative with a surprise on every page. It sheds new light on old questions – how the team colours were chosen, how the Canadiens came to be known as the Habitants – and goes behind the scenes of tumultuous recent events still awaiting thorough examination: why Scotty Bowman was passed over as general manager after Sam Pollock resigned; why Pollock’s successor, Irving Grunman, failed; why Serge Savard was dumped as GM so hastily despite his record. Colourful and controversial, The Montreal Canadiens is the history of a team that has been making news for 100 years – and continues to do so with the return of legendary player Bob Gainey as general manager, determined to bring the Stanley Cup back to Montreal.

Book Summary:

This book reveals one of the greatest eras in Vancouver's history, an era before automobiles when people, regardless of race, religion, or social status, rode together in the same shared vehicles. From the 1890s to 1915, state-of-the-art electric street cars and interurbans carried citizens from downtown to the farthest reaches of the Lower Mainland. Vancouver's early "people's vehicles" with affordable fares carved an exciting new future for the city of 10,000 residents who otherwise had only their feet, a bicycle, or a costly horse and carriage ride for transportation through the muddy urban streets. The way the city developed was dependent on public transit, and even modern transit is very much indebted to the earliest plans. As well as a history of transit, this book explores the dramatic ways Vancouver was changing at the turn of the 20th century. It reveals the individuals and the groups who were involved in carving the city from the wilderness, and creating a glamorous metropolis. Over 150 archival images of classic streetcars and conductors, city streets and buildings reveal Vancouver as it was then.

Book Summary:

A rollicking guided tour of one extraordinary summer, when some of the most pivotal and freakishly coincidental stories all collided and changed the way we think about modern sports The summer of 1984 was a watershed moment in the birth of modern sports when the nation watched Michael Jordan grow from college basketball player to professional athlete and star. That summer also saw ESPN's rise to media dominance as the country's premier sports network and the first modern, commercialized, profitable Olympics. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird's rivalry raged, Martina Navratilova and John McEnroe reigned in tennis, and Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon made pro wrestling a business, while Donald Trump pierced the national consciousness as a pro football team owner. It was an awakening in the sports world, a moment when sports began to morph into the market-savvy, sensationalized, moneyed, controversial, and wildly popular arena we know today. In the tradition of Bill Bryson's One Summer: America, 1927, L. Jon Wertheim captures these 90 seminal days against the backdrop of the nostalgia-soaked 1980s, to show that this was the year we collectively traded in our ratty Converses for a pair of sleek, heavily branded, ingeniously marketed Nikes. This was the year that sports went big-time.

Book Summary:

This book chronicles the most exciting generation of British music the world has ever seen. After 1976, the subversive firestorm of punk rock kicked open the door for hosts of other scenes. In rapid succession came Ska, New Mod, New Wave, anarcho-punk and Oi/street-punk. It was an explosion of madcap musical energy as incendiary as it was inspirational, created and performed by both geniuses and madmen. At the heart of this rock 'n' roll tsunami was SOUNDS magazine. And at the heart of SOUNDS was your narrator, Garry Bushell. Like his idols, Garry lived every day as if it was his last. Which it nearly was. Going to prison with the Angelic Upstarts, tripping into paranoid West Berlin with the Exploited before The Wall came down, fighting a world champion boxer...all in a day's work for our Garry. These were truly days of glory. Bushell joined The Specials and The Selecter as they toured the US for the first time. He hung out with Debbie Harry, feuded with Crass, skanked away with Madness, championed Secret Affair and managed the Cockney Rejects. From John Cooper Clarke to Right to Work marches, from Squeeze in South London to seedy German brothels, this volume is a unique record of raw and exciting bands, giant characters and radical ideas - all told with a twinkle in the eyes and a smile on the lip. Sounds Of Glory is a brilliant new memoir from one of Britain's most daring and controversial rock journalists. It's a must-read for anyone who loved Sounds and lived through the golden years of British rock and pop.
