“Martin Jones, the author, has provided a compelling case that ice hockey originated in Dartmouth and Halifax.”

-Paul Henderson

This book relies on true contemporary newspaper articles, recorded eyewitness accounts, historical images, and the research of prominent historians… It is a convincing argument about how a number of seemingly unrelated factors – native and immigrant craftsmanship, long winters, a plethora of lakes, a military presence, and the building of a canal – conspired to create Canada’s best-loved game.
