Looking at the illustrations, I was going to guess this book was much older. I guess I should also cop to the fact that I am older than dirt and I am starting to resent that the 60s and 70s are “ancient history”. But I digress.
As you can see this is a simple book on football. More story than actual instruction. Of course, no women or girls are anywhere to be seen. (They must be off cooking manly meals for the aspiring players.) Probably not a day goes by where I am not handing out books on football, baseball and hockey. (Detroit’s recent rise in both baseball and football have caused a nice spike in circulation of sports books. Thank you, Lions and Tigers!) There are much better titles floating around out there and I don’t want to dampen the enthusiasm of our young fans, especially the girls. Upgrade please!
