Many people consider the United States hockey teams gold medal win in the 1980 Winter Olympics to be the greatest sports event of the 20th century.

In Tales from the Miracle on Ice, former Olympic hero Mark Johnson talks about how 20 college players from around the country came together under the leadership of legendary coach Herb Brooks.

He gives inside details on everything from those early moments during tryouts to the long exhibition schedule of games that took the team across North America and Europe, along with the bitter loss to the powerful Soviet Union team just a week before the start of the Olympics. The main focus of Tales from the Miracle on Ice, however, are the events that occurred over 10 days in Lake Placid, New York, including the opening game of the Olympics for Team USA. It is the story of a hockey team that went from huge underdog to the best hockey team in the world with an astounding upset victory over the Soviets, which included a key goal by Johnson himself.

Tales from the Miracle on Ice provides insight about other members of the American team, including Mike Eruzione, Jim Craig, Mike Ramsey, Ken Morrow, Bill Baker, and Dave Christian, among others. These are tales about a team that nobody gave a chance to do anything. No one thought the United States could beat the Soviets and then go on to win the gold medal, but the team believed it could happen. Johnson takes readers back to that time in 1980 when Americans, who had hit an all-time low, were once again proud to be Americans after their victory.

He also tells what the gold medal team members did after the Olympics, including their visit to the White House and the other celebrations that followed. It is hardto believe that a quarter of a century has gone by since that Sunday back in late February of 1980 when the American public fell in love with a bunch of kids playing hockey.
