Product Description
Angela Ruggiero is the world’s best women's ice hockey player as rated by Hockey News magazine. She was the first female non-goalie to play in a men’s professional hockey league, and she has used her status as a top female athlete to promote education, health, and the value of sports across the globe. A Harvard graduate, humanitarian, and rare hockey “triple crown” winner (Olympic gold medalist, world champion, and collegiate champion), she traces in Breaking the Ice the growth of girls’ and women’s hockey from the fringes of the sports world to the center of the Olympic and world stage.Angela’s inspirational journey from a childhood in the suburbs of Southern California, where she had to overcome skepticism concerning girls in hockey and even about the sport of hockey itself, to stardom in rinks around the world is a remarkable story of determination and athletic achievement. A leading player for all three U.S. Women’s Olympic Hockey teams for which she has played, she recounts not only the joys of ultimate victory but also the physical and emotional challenges that confront a topnotch athlete, including strains on family life, a punishing training regimen, and the rigors of constant travel. It reveals Angela as a dynamic and outspoken woman who has packed a rucksack full of intense experiences and hard-learned lessons into her life. Her story will appeal not only to hockey and sports fans but also to readers of all ages who are interested in the triumph of a woman who would not be daunted by the challenges of blazing a trail and breaking through barriers. Angela has played in six International Ice Hockey Federation Women’s World Championships, and in April 2005 she scored one of the shootout goals that helped the U.S. team win the tournament for the first time. She was recognized by the NCAA as one of the Top VIII scholar athletes in the country. Since graduating from Harvard in 2004, Ruggiero has founded the All-American Girls Hockey School. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars hockey role model
I read this book after my 13 year hockey player finished. This is a life lesson book. She is one of the top in her field and like C.Gunn had things to overcome that made them stronger. This book lets girls know these are real people that worked hard, and it is possible to shoot for the stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for ALL female athletes
My daughter is a 10 year old girl hockey player and both she and I read the book, she actually did a powerpoint presentation for school on the book.This book is more than just a hockey book but an insiration to all girls about the obstacles Angela overcame in her life.After reading the book myself I am glad to know that my daughter looks up to Angela and wants to be like her, there is NO better role model for a young girl to look up to than Angela.This book is a must for all young girls, no matter what sport or activity they are involved in.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring.
This book talks about some of the early formings of girls/womens hockey in the USA. This is a very good book to read if you are familiar with hockey. Even if you are not involved with hockey you will like this book, because it talks about overcoming the odds and moving up in the ranks. ... Read more

Product Description

Hockey made its Olympic debut at the 1920 games in Antwerp. Canada’s lopsided victories on their way to the gold medal — 15-0 over Czechoslovakia, a 12-1 shellacking of Sweden — set the stage for what was to become a decades-long dominance. This book documents each Olympic appearance in exciting detail, complete with extensive archival photography and personal player accounts.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good history lesson
This book was okay for an elementary/middle school child's library. It contained more historical information of world events than actual information about the games played by the 1980 Olympic Hockey team. Very little information was given about the players themselves or their sentiments at the time. ... Read more

Product Description
The 2002 Winter Olympics were hosted by Salt Lake City, Utah. Just four years previous, Women's Hockey had become an official Olympics sport, at Nagano, Japan. There, the Canadian team had been favoured to win the gold. They were the World Championship winntes, after all. Yet in a disappointing final game, Team Canada lost to the USA and ended up with a silver. Now, heading into the 2002 winter Games, they're on a losing streak. What would it take for our women to bring home the gold?

4-0 out of 5 stars Relive the Game and Get to Know the Players
Coffey writes an awesome book, capturing not only the drama of the game with the Russians, but also providing snapshot biographies of the key players.Like an expert skater, he weaves in and out with game and player details.The story never gets old and the insight as to the boys in red, white and blue is fascinating. Matters not if you are a hockey fan or sports fan or even if you weren't yet born in 1980, pick it up and give it a read.Great book about a key moment in sports and our nation's history.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good read
My son actually had to read this book as part of a report for his English class, but said he really enjoyed reading it. He is a huge hockey fan and plays the sport himself, so it probably wasn't a stretch.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Boys of Winter:The Untold Story of a Coach, a Dream, and the 1980 Olympic Hockey Team
The book arrived in new condition, even though I paid used price.The content of the book is very detailed with every USA Olympic hockey player featured thoughout the book.In addition, the author interviewed the Soviet hockey players and gives their view of the game.A must read for hockey fans.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good read...Great memories
Anyone who fondly remembers the "Miracle On Ice" will find this book to be an enjoyable walk down memory lane of the greatest sports event in the history of the United States.The author's unique storytelling intertwines the play-by-play of the semi-final game between the USA and USSR with the individual stories of the game's major "characters."

The story of the game and circumstances surrounding that time in US history has been told so many times, that many of the tales in the book are familiar but the author keeps it interesting.He also provides more insight into the Soviet team and its background than I've ever previously encountered.The only dissapointment for me was the lack of attention to the other games that the United States played during its Olympic run.

5-0 out of 5 stars I was at that game
I just finished reading Wayne Coffey's book "The Boys of Winter" and old memories came back,
as I was at that game on February 22-1980 in Lake Placid. The book tells this incredible story
in a fascinating way. Once you start reading it, you cannot stop reading, so interestingly it
is written. You learn a lot what happened befor and after this game.
I highly recommend this book.
