Description

An exciting, behind-the scenes look at the achievements of the greatest women's hockey player of all time!

Hayley Wickenheiser has had a long standout career, and this book explores everything it took for her to reach Olympic hockey gold four times!

From her early days in small-town Saskatchewan, where she played on boys' teams because there weren't any teams for girls, to joining the Canadian Women's Team when she was just 15 years old, to being named MVP at both the 2002 and 2006 Olympic tournaments, this wonderful book gives all the details on her life and hardwon victories.

Hayley's life is truly an Amazing Hockey Story, and this book is a true inspiration to any young sports fan!

This new series features an action-packed format combining the excitement of full-colour comic book illustration segments with lively text and lots of photographs, including some never before seen.
