She Shoots, She Scores: Heather Kellerhals Stewart

SHE SHOOTS, SHE SCORES: A true and sometimes hilarious account of a girl who wants to play hockey in Edmonton during the early '70s, just before women's hockey burst back onto the scene. An excerpt from Christie Blatchford's book review in the September 6, 1975 Globe and Mail shows how times have changed: "Ha. Like they say at the rink, kid — if you can't play with the men, go home." By the way, the heroine of the story just happens to be the author's daughter!>
