Paul Kitchen's book is subtitled the inside story of the Old Ottawa Senators 1883 - 1935. Fans of the modern Senators and hockey fans in general will enjoy this book. It is not generally known today, but Ottawa had a rich hockey history before NHL hockey in Canada became the province of the larger wealthy cities. Paul has done an excellent job of bringing Ottawa's hockey history to life in this book. The days of unheated arenas and natural ice, seven man teams, and the Stanley Cup as a challenge cup that could be played for more than once a year certainly were interesting.
