The highly anticipated follow-up to Willie Sellars' award-winning Dipnetting with Dad, in Hockey with Dad, Sellars continues the adventures of Little Brother as he grows and learns about the importance of hockey to his Secwépemc community.

She shoots, she scores! Big Sister's hockey team has worked hard toward the most important game of the season. When the team goalie gets injured, Little Brother excitedly steps onto the ice to play in the Championship game. He always wanted to be part of the lineup, where Big Sister is the ace forward. The closer the game gets, the more nervous he becomes. Can he and Sister make the community proud? He must rely on his family's long history of playing hockey, the wisdom of Grandpa, Dad, Big Sister, and the Secwépemc cultural values they impart. (From Caitlin Press)
