John Mayasich & The Eveleth High School Hockey Dynasty comes to us from Ross Bernstein’s Sixty Years & Sixty Heroes: A Celebration of Minnesota Sports. In it, Ross chronicles Minnesota’s greatest sports heroes and sporting events through a very unique format. Each chapter represents a year, going from 1948 through 2008, and features the top three events from the world of Minnesota sports. Those events are then tied into interviews, biographies, stories, and where-are-they-now’s of our greatest home town and home grown heroes. Proceeds from the sale of the book benefit the Herb Brooks Foundation.
