Seahawk: Confessions of an Old Hockey Goalie
by Bruce Valley
Seahawk is a personal memoir of a youngster's late 1950s participation on a championship New England town hockey team composed of grizzled WWII veterans, and traces that boy's life and connection to hockey across almost sixty years. At the age of fourteen, the author became the Seahawks' goaltender, and played that position for the better part of the two final thrilling yet terrifying seasons, in 1959 and 1960.
“A fine literary descendant of Jack Falla’s Home Ice and Peter Gzowski’s The Game of Our Lives. Like any good hockey book, it teaches us more about the world than hockey itself.”
“A compellingly intimate sports book that will hopefully become a movie, Seahawk has the breadth, depth, and power to be read for generations.”
