Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. Canadian History. WOMEN ON ICE is the first book to focus upon the vibrant world of women's ice hockey in western Canada during the First World War and the 1920s. With the support of more than three dozen photographs, many of which are published here for the first time, WOMEN ON ICE follows the fortunes of the Vancouver Amazons as they encountered teams from Victoria and New Westminster and the powerful squads from Calgary and Edmonton--teams that deserve to be legendary, but are now largely forgotten. Also profiled are teams from the Kootenays and Alberta. The curious decline of women's hockey in the 1930s consigned to obscurity the history of these and of all women's teams in western Canada. Women on Ice attempts to rescue some of that fascinating history.
