Our Life with the Rocket: The Maurice Richard Story
Roch Carrier (au); Sheila Fischman (tr). French Canadian hockey player Maurice Richard, “The Rocket,” was the greatest player of his era & he remains an enduring icon of hockey excellence. Fans in Quebec province revered him & enthusiastically followed his matchless accomplishments. This book captures a world in which a brooding, taciturn athlete, who hated to speak publicly & rarely expressed opinions on anything, became a powerful, enduring symbol for French Canadians at a time when they felt painfully vulnerable amid Canada’s English majority. The book is also about a young boy, Roch Carrier himself (the author), whose youthful worship of Richard was tempered by politics & personal life, & evolved into an entirely different sort of appreciation for an extraordinary man.
