Writing In The Free World

From The Globe And Mail's obituary of noted Canadian journalist Scott Young, who passed away on Monday:

"Young's trilogy of hockey books for boys, Scrubs on Skates, Boy on Defence and Boy at the Leafs' Camp,were food for fantasy for the youth of a hockey-loving country. They were only a part of a body of work that included 40 books of fiction and autobiography drawn from a career in which Young travelled the world covering everything from the Second World War to the assassination of John F. Kennedy and nearly every major sporting event in North America."

In 1984, the prolific Mr Young also authored a book about his relationship with his singer-songwriter son. The title: Neil And Me.
