No Canadian can fail to recognize the name Tim Horton. For many, however, the name suggests coffee and donuts, especially "donuts with sprinkles". But Tim Horton was more than that. He was a tough but fair sportsman renowned as the "strongest man in hockey". This junior biography presents his true story to young Canadian readers.

Praise For…

One wonders how the world would have changed if Tim Horton [had] never been born? For one thing, we would not have Tim Horton coffee shops every half mile or so. Tim Horton was the consummate defenseman for the Toronto Maple Leafs, then the Buffalo Sabres. His tragic death cut short quite a hockey career and personal life. Don Quinlan’s book about the former star is more geared to a younger audience, so they can read about his career and accomplishments. It is a tribute to the man, before hockey, and during his career. He was well-liked by teammates and in the book we see the man behind the player. Filled with classic photos of Horton the player and family man, the book will show younger readers how someone can achieve their dream, and even as a hockey star, could branch out into the donut business and leave behind such a legacy. Tim Horton will always live on in name and spirit, and although geared to younger readers, any reader of any age will find new facts and information about this man who died much too soon.
