Description:

Although we unavoidably visualize sports in their modern manifestations, America has been home to a wide variety of athletic pastimes since before the Mayflower set sail. First published in 1931, Herbert Manchester's history encompasses the hunting expeditions of both Montezuma and George Washington, mid-19th-century yacht races, and the Civil War–era craze for baseball and roller skating, as well as the introduction of tennis, polo, and the newfangled bicycle. Featuring 100 black and white illustrations, the book also chronicles the long history of horse racing in America, and the somewhat fleeting vogue of cricket, quoits, and competitive walking. 245.
