Advanced Praise (aka Blurbs)
I feel extremely fortunate to have received these two flattering blurbs for Klondikers.
Here’s one from The Athletic’s James Mirtle:
• “Meticulously researched and endlessly fascinating, Klondikers offers a remarkable portrait of the often-overlooked story of hockey’s beginnings in Canada’s North. Falconer has done it again.”
And here’s another from The Globe and Mail‘s Cathal Kelly:
• “Somewhere between John Huston and Michael Lewis, this frontier romp through hockey’s earliest days is a delight. We are defined in part by the games they play, which means Tim Falconer is teaching us our own history. If that subject had been this much fun at school, I’d have paid more attention.”
