Product Description

From Library Journal

This compilation captures the variety and intensity of America's involvement with sport and recreational activities from Colonial times to the present. Over 60 short articles, each with a bibliography, cover a panorama of sport and recreation happenings which range from the obscure (parlor disguises and medical electricity as a tool for fitness) to the well-known (Monopoly and crossword puzzles). This is a highly entertaining book, although the title is misleading: it stretches the point to consider Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak or Hank Aaron's 715th homerun a fad. A great nostalgic trip for the sport/recreation enthusiast.
- Kenneth Tillman, Trenton State Coll., N.J.
