How did the Kenora Thistles become the smallest team in the smallest town ever to win the Stanley Cup? This famously scrappy hockey team was founded in Kenora, Ontario, at the end of the 19th century. A decade later, playing far away from home, in Montreal, the fiery teenagers whom the Montreal Star dubbed "the fastest that have ever been seen anywhere on ice" out-skated and out-played their older, more experienced opponents to win the coveted hockey championship trophy.

Review:

"...it might just be the ticket to get [reluctant teens] interested in the printed word. It deals with teenagers becoming adults, and making a name for themselves and their home town in the process. Even for adults the story itself is fascinating." (Kenora Daily Miner and News 2006-11-23)

"Historic photos and short chapters promise to make the book palatable for reluctant readers." (Quill and Quire 2006-01-08)
