*Note* - This biography was first published back in 2014, 2 years before the death of Gordie Howe.

Born (1928) in the small town of Floral, Saskatchewan - Gordie Howe (aka. "Mr. Hockey") is ranked right up there in the top 100 of the greatest NHL hockey players of all time.

Howe's career in the sport of hockey began in 1946 and it endured for 34 years when he finally retired from the game in 1980 at the age of 52.

For your added enjoyment - This book also includes 16 pages of photos.

*Note* - In 2016 - Gordie Howe (88 at the time) died from a major stroke.

This is the story of Gordie Howe's Hockey career lasting five decades; but it is more than that. The story begins even before Howe started playing. It talks of his tough life in Saskatchewan and how this toughness proved useful in later years.
If the book seems to be somewhat like bragging just stop and think who is writing it. Gordie Howe owned the record books till Wayne Gretzky came along.
If you are a hockey fan you'll love this book. If you're not a hockey fan you just might become one on reading it! Regardless, a wonderful read.

I was pleasantly surprised by how Mr. Hockey comes across in this memoir. He tells his story, growing up, playing hockey, his family life, and life after hockey, in a genuine, down to earth style. The reader feels like Gordie is actually sitting opposite and sharing his story first hand. If you're a fan of Howe, or hockey history, you'll enjoy it immensely.
