This is a nice little book that looks great on my coffee table and I've had a few guests flip through it already. I found the articles on the history of sledding and different styles of sleds especially interesting. Sledding has been a favorite pass-time of mine for as long as I can remember and it's great to have a book that celebrates that (as opposed to the many that focus only on skiing.)

However, I'm not one of those people who all but refuses to give a perfectly good product a five star rating. It's just that the main reason I bought this book was when I found out that it had an entire section on "building a better sled". I'm an avid do-it-yourselfer and am in the process of building my own sled so I had to get the only book out there that could really help me at the moment. However, the section turned out to be a very general story of how the author began his sled building company. That section was really of no help.

Still, I'm glad I bought this book and would definately reccomend it to a friend!

This is a wonderful book! I purchased it for my 17 year old daughter who will be attending college in the north where they get a lot of snow. She loved it! I love the "old" look of the book. It brought back memories of the wonderful books I read as a child. I highly recommend it!

I liked this book very much - it's short and sweet. Lots of tips on good sledding technique, the history of sledding, and even apres sledding drink recipes...makes you want to get out there in the white stuff.

Looks like it would be an older book-but no it's new-if you are into vintage wooden snow sleds you will find it interesting-I did
