This book contains an informative guide to Tobogganing, exploring its interesting history, equipment, different styles and techniques, and much more. A toboggan is a simple sled which is a traditional form of transport used by the Innu and Cree of northern Canada. "Tobogganing" often refers to the use of a toboggan for sport and leisure, either on snow-covered slopes or specially-crafted courses, much like bobsleigh runs. This volume will appeal to toboggan enthusiasts and those with a particular interest in its history and evolution, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "Introductory", "Toboggan Runs", "Toboggans - Construction and Mechanical", "Riding", "Timing the Run", "Speed and Records", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
