 About the Book 

Hockey may be Canadas game, but curling is Canadas life. Brought over from Scotland with the 78th Fraser Highlanders, the sport of curling has alleviated many seemingly endless winters, from 1759 to present day. Today, over one million people inMoreHockey may be Canadas game, but curling is Canadas life. Brought over from Scotland with the 78th Fraser Highlanders, the sport of curling has alleviated many seemingly endless winters, from 1759 to present day. Today, over one million people in Canada are curlers, and Canada boasts more curling world championships and trophies than any other country in the world. With archival and modern photographs as well as informative text, Doug Maxwell recounts the definitive history of curling in Canada. From the highly technical games of Olympians Kelly Law and Ed Martin, back to the first organised curling club in Canada (the Montreal Curling Club founded in 1807), Maxwell provides a thorough grounding on the other ice sport that has come to define Canada.
