More about this Book
Author Ray Love combines the recreational pursuits of year-round Muskokans and summer visitors to portray, as he says, “what they did for exercise and fun.” With photographs from a variety of sources, the book visually presents such pursuits as fishing, hunting, watersports, lacrosse, baseball, track and field, hockey, and other winter sports. A number of Muskokans who achieved national fame in sports are mentioned.
Muskokan Ray Love, in addition to teaching history, geography, and economics at the high school level, was a basketball coach. He himself engaged in a sporting life through basketball, golf, Nordic skiing, alpine skiing, soccer, rugby, softball, swimming, and cycling.
