Until now much of the early history of ice hockey in Scotland has been neglected or forgotten - metaphorically frozen in time, lying buried under the ice. Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive and social history of both the Club and International game in the country from the late 19th century up to 1940. It aims to restore Scottish ice hockey to its right and proper place, representing a pioneering nation in the early development and organisation of this great world-wide sport. The bulk of the book is dedicated to the eleven seasons of competition in the Scottish League in the inter-war period, where a number of themes - including the transition from amateurism to semi-professionalism and the home-based player vs the imported player controversies - are fully explored. A definitive records section has also been included. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the debt owed to ice hockey missionaries from the Land of the Maple Leaf cannot be overstated. Ice hockey represents a unique link in the long and happy social relationship which has always existed between the people of Scotland and Canada, and to which this book can be viewed as a minor contribution.
