Hockey in British Columbia: 1895–1911
Craig H Bowlsby

Before the NHL, before the Pacific Coast League, British Columbia was vibrant with ice hockey. Everything would stop when a big game was played. Who were the players, the fans, and what did it all mean to them? How did rules evolve in those formative years, and how did events then influence the hockey we know today? This exhaustively researched book includes the names of over 3,000 early participants and details the amazing careers of the Patrick brothers in Nelson before they left for the coast to start the PCL in 1911.
