OTTAWA, Nov. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - As winter approaches in Canada, the hockey season gets into full swing, and our love of our game takes hold. "The Goal" from Rock's Mills Press https://www.rocksmillspress.com/goal.html explores that passion among Canadians of all ages.
"The Goal" is a collection of 14 short stories by Andrew Caddell and journalist Dave Stubbs. It offers an analogy of sport and life, illustrating hockey's close connection to Canada's identity and communities, bringing together a series of characters in true stories from Canada's past and present. Last year, "The Goal" cracked the Amazon top 100 among sports books in Canada.
Here is what reviewers have said about "The Goal":
- "There's a sweet wistfulness to many of the stories in The Goal. They hearken back to a simpler time, when people played shinny on backyard rinks." Montreal Gazette
- "Readers will feel as though they themselves were thrust into the cold that penetrates goalies' legs as they stand guard, helpless against the wind coming in off the St. Lawrence River." The Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph
- "In this charming book, Andrew Caddell and Dave Stubbs tell the tales of ordinary people and their fascination with hockey and its heroes. Tales of childhood dreams and outdoor ice." Ottawa Citizen
With the Christmas season coming, Andrew will travel the country promoting "The Goal." "I would be happy to organize interviews in local media, book signings or readings and provide samples of the stories in 'The Goal' to any member of the media who contacts me."
