  • Hockey's rich history explored through some of its most fascinating documents Every great career in hockey starts with a pen and a piece of paper. In Blue Lines, Goal Lines & Bottom Lines, author Greg Oliver takes a peek into historical documents of the stars, from Wayne Gretzky's first contract to a scouting report on Mario Lemieux; from Bobby Hull promoting a hair restoration product to Glenn Anderson fighting for his playoff bonuses. And what's this about baseball Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins playing with the St. Louis Blues? The journeymen tell their tales too, from Lou Nanne explaining why he signed his own retirement papers to Pierre Pilot talking about Elmer "Moose" Vasko's battle with his weight. Culled from the archives of Allan Stitt, one of hockey's leading collectors, the book offers up page after page of treats never before seen by hockey fans. The documents that breathe life into Blue Lines, Goal Lines & Bottom Lines are complemented by a wide variety of stunning and rare photos from the Hockey Hall of Fame archives.

    Take the snowiest mountains in Canada, add an army of adrenaline-addicted skiers, and throw a helicopter into the mix for an unforgettable story of mountain adventure and the invention of an entire industry. The idea is simple: helicopter up to the top of the mountain, then ski back down. The reality is more complex, from avoiding massive avalanches, to flying through blinding snow-storms, to guiding skiers safely across crevasse-riddled glaciers. 'Bugaboo Dreams' highlights all of this and more with vivid illustrations and a heart-racing narrative that will capture your imagination.
