Lake Placid Miracle: When U.S. Hockey Stunned the World

by Blake Hoena
Illustrated by Eduardo Garcia

In 1980 the Soviet Union had dominated the world of hockey for nearly 30 years. Nobody thought the USSR's hockey team could be beaten in the Winter Olympics. But US Hockey coach Herb Brooks didn't believe that. He pulled together a ragtag team of amateur hockey players and molded them into a team that could compete with the best teams in the world. Through months of hard work and determination, the US team achieved the impossible and defeated the dreaded Soviets. Readers will get a thrilling up-close look at the story of the 1980 US Olympic Hockey team and their miraculous victory in Lake Placid, New York.

"Legendary moments in U.S. sports history are brought to life. Each author sets the scene before diving into the main topic. . . .Critical thinking questions at the end of each book encourage students to dive deeper. . . .Where collections are in need of more options for reluctant nonfiction readers, these will fit the bill." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
