Fisher, Donald M.


Honorable Mention, Best Sport History Book Awards, North American Society for Sport HistoryNorth America's Indian peoples have always viewed competitive sport as something more than a pastime. The northeastern Indians' ball-and-stick game that would become lacrosse served both symbolic and practical functions. Today a multimillion-dollar industry, lacrosse is played by colleges and high schools, amateur clubs, and two professional leagues.In Lacrosse, Donald M. Fisher traces the evolution of the sport from the pre-colonial era to the founding in 2001 of a professional outdoor league, told through the stories of the people behind each step in lacrosse's development -- from Canadian dentist George Beers, the father of the modern game, to Rosabelle Sinclair, who played a large role in the 1950s reinforcing the feminine qualities of the women's game, to 1960s Indian star Gaylord Powless, who endured racist taunts both on and off the field."This book will long serve as the standard history of lacrosse." -- Journal of American History"An important contribution to our understanding of how sport emerged as a professional, commercial spectacle in modern North America." -- Canadian Historical Review"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." -- The Beaver"[A] definitive history of Lacrosse... Will be enjoyed by sports fans and referenced by social historians." -- Montreal GazetteFisher, Donald M. is the author of 'Lacrosse A History of the Game' with ISBN 9780801869389 and ISBN 0801869382.
