KIRKUS REVIEW

A scrupulous if tedious chronicle of the career of hockey's very first superstar, from Taylor's rustic Canadian boyhood to his appearance nearly a century later at the 1972 Team Canada vs. USSR matches in Moscow. All the facts are there--his off-season play as a professional lacrosse star, his ten-year courtship of his wife, his canny career-maneuvering in an era when sports stars had relatively little opportunity to advance, his spectacular talents that earned him his nickname--but this is as fiat as the rink he played on.
