The only thing better than playing sports and games is reading about them! Whether you're an avid race fan or love to shoot skeet, "The Encyclopaedia of Sports & Games" has something for you. The third volume in a set of four, this text covers a wide range of topics from hunting to racing in a series of articles written by several different contributors.
One of the more interesting topics covered is hunting. Not content to cover just the basics, this volume of the series examines several different hunting styles and techniques including an in-depth discussion of prey. All prey is listed with detailed descriptions and advice for hunters. The book includes common prey like deer and rabbit, more elusive prey such as the moose and jaguar, and incredibly unusual prey like otters and kangaroos. The book also discusses hunting in different parts of the world, procedures for obtaining proper licenses, and hunting with dogs. But this book isn't just about hunting, there are a plethora of other topics covered in "The Encyclopaedia of Sports & Games" such as horn music, lacrosse, lawn tennis, motor-boating, military sports, mountaineering, and cave exploration.
If you aren't into modern sports, not to worry, "The Encyclopaedia of Sports & Games" also has a section devoted entirely to obsolete (and in many countries now banned) sports like badger baiting, cock fighting, and bear and bull waiting. As part of a larger series, this volume carries a multitude of interesting articles that help readers understand sports and games better from a more historic viewpoint. Great for any sports enthusiast.
