            Have you ever wondered what people did for fun throughout history? Edward Brooke-Hitching began to wonder the same thing while flipping through an eighteenth-century German book on hunting, and found a bygone sport in which German nobles launched foxes into the air. This random d...iscovery of a game that slipped through the mainstream historical cracks led him to wonder: how many other sports have been left out of modern history accounts? Now, Brooke-Hitching shares his hilarious journey to discover the curious recreations contrived by mankind that have long since gone extinct (for good reason). Compiling more than 100 of the most puzzling, cruel, and ludicrous games that have ever been played, including Aerial Golf, Hidden Hunting, Ski Ballet, Eel Pulling, and many more, Brooke-Hitching chronicles an entertaining romp through forgotten leisurely pastimes that history wanted you to forget--and that you definitely shouldn't try at home. An illuminating gift book filled with acerbic humor and charming illustrations, Fox Tossing is sure to be enjoyed by many--and will let you take solace in knowing that at least your grandfather wasn't the genius who invented Tortoise Racing, or any of the other games too stupid, or too harmful to withstand the test of time.
