About the author:
Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Curtis Walker lives in St. Catharines, Ontario. His passions include the history of the original Winnipeg Jets (1972-1996) and the World Hockey Association as well as the New Jersey Generals and the United States Football League.
In addition to his two books on the Jets, Curtis has written other titles. My Journey with Carli is the compelling story of his friend Carli Ward, a 25-year-old who passed away of cervical cancer. View from Section 26 features a look at minor-league hockey from his many years following the Manitoba Moose of the now-defunct IHL. He takes a politically incorrect look at his hometown in Shattered Dreams, a heavily sarcastic diary of a Utopian socialist who eventually sours on Winnipeg and opens his eyes to the harsh reality of socialism. On the Bus Again chronicles his many bus trips between Winnipeg and the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, and he offers an in-depth, week-by-week history of his favorite football team in Fallen Generals.
