From the Back Cover:

Sport is for everyone: professionals and amateurs, children and women, natives and immigrants, spectators and reporters-no one is left out. Sport is about more than the activity: it is about community, history, culture, and a sense of belonging. In Game Plan, Karen Wall delves deep into the importance and influence of sport in Alberta-from aquatics to wrestling. A superb display of words and images underpins this first comprehensive history of sport in Alberta, depicting its evolution and reflecting its historical realities. Game Plan touches on more than just the heroic achievements of winning and the economic growth provided by professional sport: it reveals the spirited heart of individual players, their teams, and their organizations. Whether a spectator, supporter, scholar, or fan, readers will be informed and delighted by the details and personal anecdotes in this sport history. "Sport has been viewed as a secular religion and as a frivolous diversion. It can be both, and many other things, depending on who is playing, watching, or organizing." From the Conclusion Karen L. Wall has a PhD in Recreation & Leisure Studies and Canadian Studies from the University of Alberta and is an Associate Professor in the Communication Studies Program at Athabasca University. Now living in Edmonton, she has also taught at the University of Alberta and at Red Deer College.
