Resource Description

This is the story of Carey Price, legendary NHL player and member of the Ulkatcho First Nation in BC’s interior. Carey’s life story is presented in an accessible way with the book’s use of a standard novel format, photographs, and its highlighting of helpful vocabulary. Readers will learn about how Price achieved success with the help of hard work, dedication, his parents’ support, and the grounding provided by his Indigenous heritage and traditions. A high-interest and low-vocabulary novel, this book is suitable for researching Indigenous athletes or how Indigenous families today continue to honour traditional values; it is appropriate as a literature circle choice or as a class read-aloud.
