KIRKUS REVIEW

An excellent -- and timely -- addition to the Dollar Sports Library, in these days when one's country home should be a self contained private country club. The obvious ""lawn games"" are included: - archery, badminton, croquet, deck tennis, horseshoes, lawn bowls, shuffleboard; and a final section takes up a number of miscellaneous games such as darts, volley ball, etc. Each game has a brief historical note, a description of how the game is played and what constitutes good technique, and a summary of rules, counts, and so on. The information on equipment is handled from the viewpoint of the moderate income.
