Books on the Jets

Following are the books I have written covering the history of the Jets:

Coming Up Short

The comprehensive history of the Jets' years in the NHL

Coming Up Short details the history of the NHL's Winnipeg Jets, one of pro hockey's least successful, but most beloved teams.

The team's tumultuous 17-year journey is chronicled in exhaustive detail from their humble beginnings in 1979 to their tearful departure in 1996.

This authoritative history of the Jets' NHL years is written by a fan, for fans, to remember and celebrate their team with equal parts fondness, anguish and humor.

The Last Season

A fan's memoir of the final season of Winnipeg Jets hockey

In the spring and summer of 1995, Winnipeggers rallied like never before to save their hometown team. But in the end, despite heroic efforts, it all fell apart, leaving the Jets to embark upon one final lame-duck season before flying the coop.

Relive the ups and downs of the 1995-96 season through the eyes and ears of Jets historian Curtis Walker, who shares his insight into the fateful “Season to Remember” and the agony of being a fan of a poorly run small-market team.
