<div>In December 1979, a Detroit tradition began when the Red Wings took the ice for the first time at their new riverfront home, Joe Louis Arena. Named after former heavyweight champion boxer Joe Louis, the stadium that became affectionately known as “The Joe” saw the renaissance of the Red Wings franchise, including four Stanley Cup championship seasons and a 25-year run of advancing to the playoffs. <em>The Joe: Memories from the Heart of Hockeytown</em> takes a look back at the storied history of Joe Louis Arena in this, its final year. The arena has witnessed many stories, recounted with admiration in The Joe. Red Wings greats from Gordie Howe to Steve Yzerman to Nicklas Lidstrom skated on The Joe’s storied ice, and time-honored rivalries, such as those between the Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche, were played out in dramatic fashion. The stadium has spawned such personalities as Al the Zamboni driver, who twirls octopuses overhead, the Knitting Lady, the Guy in the Orange Hat, and Mo Cheese. The Joe also hosted a number of unforgettable non-hockey events, from Ronald Reagan’s nomination at the 1980 Republican convention, to the start of Prince’s Purple Rain tour in 1984, to N.W.A.’s controversial concert in 1989, to Bob Seger joining Kid Rock on stage during Super Bowl week in 2006. <em>The Joe</em> offers a comprehensive tribute in words and pictures to hockey’s last old-time arena. Learn about the history of the Red Wings and The Joe and the unforgettable games played there, as well as a number of key events in Detroit’s history. For anyone who has cheered on the Red Wings over the past three-plus decades, this book is not to be missed.</div>

<div>Michigan will never forget Gordie Howe’s presence on and off the ice — he combined skill, savvy, strength, meanness and longevity like no other hockey player.

A 23-time NHL All-Star, Howe led the Red Wings to four Stanley Cups, won six Hart Trophies as the league’s most valuable player and won six Art Ross Trophies as the NHL’s top scorer. When he retired in 1980, he held the NHL records for regular-season goals (801), assists (1,049), points (1,850). In this tribute to the legendary Red Wing that features nearly 100 images, the <em>Detroit Free Pres</em>s reflects on Howe’s life in 128 pages of historic photos and defining stories about Mr. Hockey.</div>

<DIV>With his familiar shock of white hair and craggy, prematurely aged face and twinkling eyes, Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson was a one of a kind personality beloved by generations of fans not just in the two cities he led to World Series championships, but throughout the baseball world. When he retired in 1995 he was third on the list of all-time winningest managers, having accumulated 2,194 victories in managing the Cincinnati Reds to two championships in nine years and adding another with the Detroit Tigers whom he managed for seventeen seasons. Throughout his years near or at the top of baseball through his 2000 election to the Hall of Fame, Anderson rejected the airs of celebrity regardless of how prominent he became, frequently reminding players and friends alike that, "As long as you remember where you came from, you'll always know where you're going." Triumph Books, with archival material from both the <EM>Detroit Free Press</EM> and <EM>The Cincinnati Enquirer</EM> is proud to present this tribute to one of the great baseball personalities of the twentieth century.</DIV>
