Bobby: My Story in Pictures
Publication Date:Oct 30, 2018
The incredible story of the life and phenomenal career of
hockey's most legendary superstar, told through never-before-seen
Bobby Orr rarely speaks of his accomplishments
as a hockey player. He doesn’t have to—his play did all his
talking for him during his storied career. His was a style of seemingly
effortless grace, a style that helped reinvent the sport of hockey.
Now, Bobby Orr shares his story through a personal
collection of photos, inviting readers into different seasons of his
life while introducing some of the people that filled these moments in
time. We see him at home and in the dressing room. We are there the day
the Boston Bruins first scouted him, at rinkside when he celebrated his
first Stanley Cup with his father, and back in Boston the day his famous
number four was retired.
Yet behind all the statistics,
trophies, and public persona, is the man himself. There were losses to
go along with the victories, disappointments alongside the
accomplishments. Without the people around him, and without the many
challenges he faced along the way, the triumphs would have meant much
Capturing not only a legendary career and
incredible person, Bobby: My Story in Pictures also brings into
focus a different era. These photos chronicle not only the changing of
the game, but also mark many significant milestones of his life.
Personal, thoughtful, and full of never-before-seen images of
Bobby Orr and those close to him, Bobby shows the varied sides
of a player who rewrote the record book. It is a public journey into a
world of a very private man.
