Champions : the illustrated history of hockey's greatest dynasties by Doug Hunter( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 350 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 )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
From acclaimed author Douglas Hunter, a searing historical work about death, deceit and dishonour, and the rivalry between Samuel de Champlain and Henry Hudson-two of the greatest explorers of the seventeenth century. Samuel de Champlain of France and Englishman Henry Hudson were rival explorers in a race to describe and exploit the northern half of North America and, not least, to find a profitable passage to the Orient. The English had been trying to find a way through the Arctic since the 1570s. For Hudson, the dream of discovery proved fatal. A mutiny in the summer of 1611 saw Hudson, his teenage son John, and seven other crew members cast adrift in James Bay in an open boat. They were never heard from again. In May 1613, Samuel de Champlain left the site of present-day Montreal on a journey up the Ottawa River into uncharted territory. Champlain had undertaken the expedition because of extraordinary testimony from a young informant, 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. To rescue both the English youth and his own career, Champlain set out to collect him. God's Mercies has all the elements of a great adventure mystery: a mutiny, a massacre, a murder trial, signed confessions, and intrigue at the highest levels of state. Truths would be revealed as lies, and lies would turn out to be half-truths. From the Hardcover edition

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
"At last, yacht design explained in a way that all sailors can understand and put to use in their sailing, in buying a new boat, or in modifying an existing one." "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
