SEAHAWK is a personal memoir of a youngster’s late 1950s participation on a championship New England town hockey team composed of WWII veterans, and traces that boy’s life and connection to hockey across almost sixty years. It is a ground-breaking study of aging while playing contact sports and reflects upon the famed WWII generation, pond hockey, black ice, and the hockey towns and teams of New England.
Few books are written about hockey; fewer expound fully on its special qualities as a sport. SEAHAWK is such a book.
— Joe Pelletier is the author of two internationally published hockey books: The World Cup of Hockey (2 editions) and Legends of Team Canada.
—Dave Bidini, author of Tropic of Hockey and The Best Game You Can Name
