9780887764530: Shooting Hoops and Skating Loops: Great Inventions in Sports

Did you know that the first “snow car” was invented in the 1920s? That talented players are buried with their lacrosse sticks to this day, so they can play in the afterlife? That long before the modern game of ice hockey there was Oochamkunutk, played by the Mi’kmaq?

Shooting Hoops and Skating Loops tells the story of ten inventions that have changed the way we spend our leisure time. From peach baskets that became basketball hoops, to new spins on bowling and improvements to ice skates that help the skater all but fly, this book is a wonderful way to celebrate human ingenuity.
