From super-smooth alley sharks to granny-style rollers, the sport of bowling excludes no one. It is the great equalizer, knocking down barriers with each strike rolled. Rabble-rousing proletariat and flush fat cats, anyone may partake in this great pastime that brings more people together than just about any participant sport. This is an entertaining illustrated history tracing the game from its ancient roots to the 21st Century U.S.. This book is illustrated with period and modern archival photos and art.
