Throwing Rocks at Houses: My Life in and out of Curling
Bargain Book Copy
Curling legend Colleen Jones opens up about her extraordinary career and life
Curling is possibly the most beloved sport across Canada, and Colleen Jones has been one of its brightest stars. She was only nineteen years old when she won her first provincial championship, and she became the youngest skip, at age twenty-two, ever to win the Canadian women's curling championship: the Tournament of Hearts. She went on to win it a total of six times, with an unprecedented four in a row in the early 2000s, along with her two world championships. No other women's team has matched that record.
Here, she tells the stories of her remarkable career - from the pure joy of the game to outworking her competition, year after year, always striving to be just a little bit better.
But Colleen's story is about more than a love of curling. As a champion at the pinnacle of her sport, as a popular CBC broadcaster, and as a mother of two, Colleen Jones seemed to have it all. Then a serious illness struck, and threatened to rob her of all she had worked for. But Colleen, determined as ever, emerged with a renewed love of life and a powerful message about achieving authentic personal fulfillment.
