Reviews

"This book will long serve as the standard history of lacrosse."

--Benjamin G. Rader "Journal of American History "

"A sweeping history of the game. Fisher traces the emergence of modern lacrosse in both Canada and the United States."

--Library Journal

"A thoroughly researched, clearly written, handsomely designed, very comprehensive history of North American lacrosse since the mid-nineteenth century... this is one of the most informative histories of any sport that I have ever read."

--Morris Mott "The Beaver "

"Rather than provide a narrative of great players, which has been the tendency in some of the earlier writings in sports history, Fisher situates the history of lacrosse in North American its broader social and cultural context. Thus, the book is an important contribution to our understanding of how sport emerged as a professional, commercial spectacle in modern North America."

--Christina Burr "Canadian Historical Review "

"[A] Definitive history of Lacrosse... Will be enjoyed by sports fans and referenced by social historians."

--Bruce Todman "Montreal Gazette "
