Champions : the illustrated history of hockey's greatest dynasties by Doug Hunter( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 332 libraries worldwide
Over the years, which teams have earned the right to be called great hockey dynasties? Few would argue that for four decades the Montreal Canadiens were such a club. So too were the Toronto Maple Leafs of the forties and sixties. The New York Islanders and the Edmonton Oilers could both lay claim to the title in the eighties, while the ever-controversial Philadelphia Flyers would fight for that right in the seventies. What made these teams great and what kept them champions for so long? How did managers build these teams and what tore them apart? How important were individual players and how significant were the famous lines created by the coaches? How would a championship club from the twenties like the Ottawa Senators compare with a club that came to dominate in the late sixties and early seventies like the Boston Bruins? And with the changes in today's game, will we see great hockey dynasties in the future? Champions: The Illustrated History of Hockey's Greatest Dynasties explores all of these questions and more. Handsomely illustrated with hundreds of evocative photos, brimming with facts, figures and anecdotes, and supported with informative and original charts and graphs, Champions provides a wealth of entertaining information for every hockey fan

God's mercies : rivalry, betrayal and the dream of discovery by Doug Hunter( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 139 libraries worldwide
France's Samuel de Champlain and Englishman Henry Hudson were rival explorers, both searching for the Northwest Passage. For Hudson the search proved fatal, as a mutiny in 1611 saw Hudson, his son, and seven others cast adrift in James Bay, never to be heard from again. In 1613, Champlain set out on a northern journey based on testimony from Nicolas de Vignau, who had spent 1611-12 with the Algonquin and returned to France with an incredible story: he had visited the Northern Sea. What's more, he had seen an English youth, the sole survivor of a shipwreck, held captive by the Nebicerini people as a gift for Champlain. Some descriptions of sex, explicit descriptions of violence and some strong language. 2007

Double Double is the first book to look at the company from a wide angle, from the life of co-founder, Tim Horton, to the growth of the business under the steady hand of his friend and partner, Ron Joyce, after Horton's death, to the company's merger with the American fast-food chain Wendy's and its eventual repatriation to Canada. A fascinating business story, Double Double also reveals how the franchising operation works, how the company has become an important element of Canadian politics, the American expansion of the chain and why Canadians are so dedicated to its menu. Double Double also examines the many challenges Tim Hortons is facing in maintaining its status as one of Canada's most respected consumer brands in an increasingly competitive business."--Pub. desc

"Yacht Design Explained uses state-of-the-art graphics, dynamic charts and photographs, and lucid prose to reveal how sailboats work. It explores why certain designs perform well and others fail, and why some established hull shapes have endured while technology-driven tank-tested ones have bombed." "The authors examine a range of crafts, from a high-performance dinghy to a 35-foot racer-cruiser, from a cruising catamaran to an offshore singlehander, breaking through the often confusing physics of yacht design to provide an understanding that sailors can use to get the most out of their time afloat." "Yacht Design Explained explores ballast, foils, hull shape, keels, sails, rigs, and rudders, describing the fundamentals behind them."--Jacket
