Book Review – Lacrosse A History of the Game by Donald M. Fisher

Lacrosse: A History of the Game
Authored by Donald M. Fischer this is a research project into the history of lacrosse within the context of the social issues going on at the time. Fischer does a wonderful and detailed job of explaining major events in the growth and development of lacrosse in the United States and Canada.

Unlike Thomas Vennum, who focused on the original game played by the First Nations, Fischer focuses more on the formation of lacrosse with Dr. Beers and the events that followed. His detail during the 1920s to 1970s is unique and unmatched. If your interest is in these time frames, this book can help your research.

Book published in 2002 by Johns Hopkins University Press.
