Description - The Last Wrestlers by Marcus Trower

For most of us, wrestling is synonymous with muscle-clad men in spandex costumes pulling faces for TV cameras. For Marcus Trower, however, the camp theatre of WWF was a dishonourable perversion of an honourable tradition a tradition sadly on the wane in modern society. Wrestling acted as an outlet, both physical and mental, for Marcus; a means of expression purer than any of the martial arts he had tried before. hen tragedy struck chronic health problems prevented him from doing what he loved most. Unwilling to let go, he determined to look into the roots of wrestling, to try and uncover some deeper, perhaps spiritual, dimension. His travels took him to such far-flung reaches as India, Mongolia, Nigeria and Brazil, the incredible scenery matched by equally colourful characters. Sometimes frightened, often frustrated but always intrepid, Marcus discovered the true origins of wrestling appeared to have little to do with spirituality and everything to do with seduction... he Last Wrestlers is both the story of one man s rebellion against the office-bound constraints of the modern world and a lament for a bygone era of masculinity. It is also a superbly written piece of sports
