AND... HOWE! :: 1995 HB w/ DJ
AND... HOWE! :: 1995 HB w/ DJ
  • Hardback Book with Dust Jacket
  • An Authorized Autobiography by Gordie and Colleen Howe with Tom DeLisle
  • Over 425 pages
  • Copyright © 1995 by Power Play Productions, Inc.

" Their name is most revered and respected in hockey. And they are a couple unlike any in the annals of international sport. "

" For the first time in the history of their 42-year marriage and their family's unprecedented and continuing 46-year-on-ice participation in major league hockey, Gordie and Colleen Howe tell the authorized story of their lives, in and out of the game, in "And...Howe!" "

" This first authorized autobiography of the Howes details their exciting, harrowing, controversial, and often humorous adventures in the center-ice spotlight of their sport. Behind the scenes and headlines were the pressure and intrigue of the business of hockey, and the demands of a dynamic family life. Gordie and Colleen reveal how they have coped with their roller coaster saga and successfully balanced courtship, marriage, parenting, and business partnership over five tumultuous decades. "

" "And...Howe!" tells the whole, unvarnished, and gripping story of hockey's first family and reveals:

  • Intimate excerpts from the love letters between Gordie during their courtship and Colleen as a young mother.
  • The Depression childhoods of Gordie and Colleen.
  • Their adversities and how they overcame them.
  • The Howe's bizarre relationship with Red Wing owner Bruce Norris.
  • Colleen's hockey pioneering efforts as the founder and executive of the Detroit Junior Red Wings, the first woman private indoor rink-builder, the first woman business manager and agent in the game.
  • The real truth behind why the Howe family never returned to Detroit in the late '70s, despite never-before-revealed overtures from the Red Wings front office.
  • The surprising revelation that Gordie did NOT retire at the age of 52 in 1980 - when "Mr. Hockey" told the press "I can damn well still play the game."
  • The inside story of the crowning achievement of the entire clan, Gordie's return to pro hockey alongside sons Marty and Mark in Houston and Hartford, and Colleen's engineering of a contract unprecedented in major sports. "

" "And...Howe!" sets the record straight on incidents, public and private, that have built the legend of the magical Howe name. It is presented in the words of those who have lived the amazing story - Gordie, Colleen, and their four children - with introductions and commentary by the writer. "
