Gary Jones, September 5, 2011 (view all comments by Gary Jones)
This is a fine book for school teachers, children's recreation leaders, camp counselors, etc. Brief, clear descriptions with clear illustrations (line-drawings), and organized by where the games are played, with appendices arranging by player age and number of players. Plus an index. Very handy.
