Camanachd! by Roger Hutchinson
Book DescriptionBut in this book, the first full history of shinty, the author shows how the game stubbornly survived in Highland glens and on island shores, in public parks as far afield as Wimbledon and Edinburgh, until a series of memorable exhibition matches, one hundred years ago, led to the foundation of the Camanachd Association, a constitutional body which has led shinty, preserving it against all the odds as one of the last great amateur sports into the age of sponsorship, national press attention and TV coverage. Camanachd! was originally published by Mainstream in 1989. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated.
