Canada Curls: The Illustrated History of Curling in Canada [Paperback]

Doug Maxwell


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

Nov. 1 2002

Hockey may be Canada's game, but curling is Canada's life. Brought over from Scotland with the 78th Fraser Highlanders, the sport of curling has alleviated many seemingly endless winters, from 1759 to present day. Today, over one million people in Canada are curlers, and Canada boasts more curling world championships and trophies than any other country in the world. With archival and modern photographs as well as informative text, Doug Maxwell recounts the definitive history of curling in Canada. From the highly technical games of Olympians Kelly Law and Ed Martin, back to the first organised curling club in Canada (the Montreal Curling Club founded in 1807), Maxwell provides a thorough grounding on the "other" ice sport that has come to define Canada.
