The Roaring Game: A Sweeping Saga of Curling by Doug Clark
Played on carefully prepared ice and involving sliding heavy, polished granite stones toward a target, curling has captivated audiences from its beginnings in medieval Scotland. This engaging book traces the sport's history and its enduring appeal, the highlights and lowlights, the superstars and eccentrics. Author Doug Clark covers every inch of curling, from Olympic near-scandals and lampooning by late-night talk hosts to tragedies like the death of nine players in the Windsor tornado.
