KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not designed for the boy who can go to a sporting goods department store or specialty shop and order what he wants, for the boys -- and the boys' clubs-with limited funds, and an cager desire to make the most of every opportunity for outdoor games. The author not only describes all types of outdoor games, from marbles to track events, but he describes the making of homemade equipment, the building of an outdoor gymnasium, the rules and regulations so that contestants will learn to play games, bicycle games, games with baseballs, with basketballs, croquet, handball, toss and throw games, tag games, and so on and so on. Games that need equipment -- and how to make the equipment. And games that don't. An essential volume for camps and clubs, for public library games shelves, and for the boys own shelf.
