About the Book

Hilarious and often touching personal stories of being great in the shadow of greatness

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to have Gordie Howe as your dad? If you’re like thousands of Canadian children who grew up in the 1960s and ’70s, you need look no further than Mark Howe’s funny, intimate account of being a Howe. As a boy, Mark playedball hockey with the kids of other Detroit Red Wings on the stairs of the Olympia, and his mom, Colleen, created a place where the neighbourhood children could play hockey in the winter, even to the detriment of her own windows. When Mark was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011, he honoured his father by proudly wearing Gordie’s retired #9 Red Wings jersey at the ceremony.

This book features many touching, even harrowing stories—Gordie caring for his ailing wife as she was debilitated by Pick’s disease, and a freak accident that almost killed Mark on the ice. Featuring many never-before-published photographs of the Howes, this is a book about hockey’s royal family told through the career of its Hall of Fame son.
