At age five, Cassie Campbell laced up her first pair of skates. Thirty years later, Campbell has secured a place in history as one of the foremost names in Canadian women's hockey. She is the former captain of Canada's National Women's Hockey Team. She has taken part in three Winter Olympic Games, seven International Ice Hockey Federation World Women's Championships, nine Four Nations Cups and the Torino Ice Tournament. Her teams have won 21 medals in total, including 17 gold medals and four silver medals.
Campbell has led a truly blessed life, one that has brought her into contact with remarkable men and women both in and out of sports. In Some Things I?ve Learned, Campbell shares the wisdom these men and women have imparted-and the lessons she counts herself lucky enough to have learned. Bold, dynamic, and passionate, Cassie draws on her accomplishments to explore the themes of leadership, teamwork, motivation, and determination. The result is a book that inspires, informs, and entertains.
