An exciting, behind-the scenes look at the achievements of the greatest women's hockey player of all time!
Hayley Wickenheiser has had a long, standout career, and this book explores everything it took for her to reach Olympic Gold four times with the Women's Team!
From her early days in small-town Saskatchewan, where she played on boys' teams, because there weren't any teams for girls, to joining the Canadian Women's Team when she was just 15 years old, to being named MVP at both the 2002 and 2006 Olympic tournaments, this wonderful book gives all the details on her hardships, and hard-won victories.
Hayley's life is truly an Amazing Hockey Story, and this book is a true inspiration to any young sports fan, who is starting his or her own path to hockey glory!
This new series features an action-packed format combining the excitement of full-colour comic book illustration segments with lively text and lots of photographs, including some never before seen.
