Well written, interesting history 2 giugno 2014
Di Ron M - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Not having any knowledge of the game, I found this historical tribute very well written & interesting. The fact that it was the lead into to American Baseball was surprising to me.

Mr. Patel's book is a well written document that captures the history of Cricket in America leading up to the birth of baseball in America.

Not original and totally dependent of other historians research. Very little original source material.
Cricket COULD have become as universal as soccer! 2 gennaio 2015

One had no idea that cricket was once the dominant bat-and-ball game in North America, as well as being quite popular in parts of Latin America, though given that the European colonists in North America were predominantly British it should come as no surprise. This work also seeks to explain why cricket lost that early advantage to other games, especially baseball.

A Chronicle and a Narrative 10 febbraio 2014
Di JamieUSYCA - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
In "Flannels on the Sward," Jayesh Patel has created perhaps the most complete compilation of the match records of early cricket in the non-Caribbean Americas. In addition, he has knitted these match records together with anecdotes and larger events in such a way as to give the reader a near-complete picture of the game in the Western Hemisphere.

Nowhere else, to my recollection, can one find anything approaching a history of cricket in Central and South America, which, when tied in with the more familiar storylines from the USA and Canada, present a fuller view of the game in the Americas. Also, the chapter on John Barton King is perhaps the closest thing to a proper biography of the legendary American cricketer than has yet been written, which by itself makes this book special.

Extensively illustrated with dozens of vintage images, western cricket's short-lived triumphs and long-term challenges are explored in depth, and while never espousing a single, unified thesis, a number of possible reasons for the game's fits and starts are presented. What is clear is that the game follows the English wherever they go, and often dies out as soon as they move on, especially in Central and South America.

The game's inability to sink roots in the indigenous populations is a persistent theme, and continues as the major obstacle to growth to this day. It is hoped that one day a "Volume 2" will be added, where a new generation will have established cricket as a commonly-played sport among the people of the Americas. Time will tell.

Long time in the making....FINALLY! 13 gennaio 2014
Di Stingray2 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The author has truley done his homework here, very factual on the history, and you will view never before shared photo's that you will not find in any cricket book to date. Meticulously researched, and written, absolutely a must have for every fan or anyone who has every played the game. Top notch.
