Crazy Canucks recounts the trials and triumphs off the Canadian men's alpine ski team of the 1970s and early 1980s. Eric Zweig offers a behind-the-scenes look at this innovative team that dared to take risks other skiers were too afraid of. The team rose from obscurity to prominence on the European and North American ski circuits with Olympic medal and World Cup wins.

[Fry Reading Level - 4.9

"Crazy Canucks is a useful book, one which provides facts and information about this great generation of Canadian male skiers while the glossary at the back will be useful for non-skiers."
