Or Angela James, long a stalwart of the national women's team, who was denied the chance to play growing up in the '70s simply because she was a girl.

REMEMBERING THE GOLDEN JET A Celebration of Bobby Hull

By MacInnis, Craig (editor)

Toronto: Stoddart Publishing. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 2001. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 0773733116 . Colour & b/w photos. 120 pages. Excellent condition. Hardcover is as new, clean & unmarked. Jacket has light scuffing and slight edgewear. Review: "MacInnis Does it Again, The "Remembering..." series transcends normal biography by showcasing top quality journalist's recollections with statistics and insights into the player and their game. Remembering the Golden Jet is no different. From Bobby Hull's early days playing minor hockey, to his watershed defection from the NHL to play for Winnipeg, a move that would rock the hockey world and force the league to re-evaluate it's salary policy forever. For Blackhawks fans this book charts the progress of a player who was feared by goalies everywhere for his blistering slapshot. I have read every Bobby Hull book out there, and nothing comes close in it's insights, in it's recognition of Hull as a true Legend of the game, as this beautifully designed book. I can't recommend it highly enough. " (400? ) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .
