The sports and games of Indians
Indian Games: an historical research
Using passages from the journals, letters, and diaries of early white explorers, Andrew McFarland Davis attempts to construct a history and description of some of the sports and games played by Indians. Although lacrosse is perhaps the most well-known, Davis describes a number of other games, including platter, straw, and a kind of football played with a deer-skin ball.
