About the Author:

Karen South Arnold, PhD., has enjoyed all kinds of games since childhood. Taught cribbage by her grandfather, she progressed to other games and holds master bridge points. Dr. Arnold has written a number of research articles on such diverse topics as animal biology and historical clothing patterns. She enjoys historical research and reenacting early American history through the fur trade period. Happily, she has focused her talents on her pastimes to produce Playing Grandma's Games. This is a book that will benefit not just the reenactors, but also everyone with an interest in how games were played BC (before computers).

Review:

"It's about time that someone put such a well-written book in the hands of people concerned with either correct historical pastimes or just wanting the rules of a game they once knew but have forgotten . . . such as hopscotch or dominoes. Karen Arnold had done a maginificent job. Thoroughly researched, engagingly presented with historical anecdotes and fantastic illustrations, this is a must-have book for everyone with an interest in how people used to have fun, historical portrayals, or in how to play games without a computer." -- Bill Cunningham, Editor of The Tomahawk and Long Rifle Magazine and author of numerous books

"Playing Grandma's Games is a genealogy map to let us glimpse the 'roots' of modern games . . . Enough details and great illustrations to let you begin to have fun in old ways." -- Donald A. Parker, Professor Emeritus, University of Oklahoma
