Chuckanut Dreams (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
Jack McKenna is a hockey prodigy in Canada's fabled Juniors. Expected to follow the normal path of hockey stardom, Jack eschews a sure NHL-bound path to be the first one in his family to graduate from university. Born to a Western Canadian family that prides itself on passion of purpose and patriotism, Jack enrolls at McGill University and falls in love with a daughter of an affluent Quebec family whose moral compass is questionable. While he leaves the game as a player, he still holds on to the virtues he embraced in the game: dedication, commitment, belief in purpose, and holding on to a dream. Graduating from McGill, Jack takes his strength of purpose, along with his new love, to a new country, in pursuit of a new dream.
