Synopsis

Do you know how to play bocce? What's the difference between that and petanque? What about playing croquet or badminton? Some of the most popular sports in the world fall under the category of 'lawn sports' and yet they have remained largely unexplored. Balls On The Lawn seeks to change that picture, introducing the awesomeness of this most casual and convivial category of sports. The book provides history, lore, rules, and insider tips for 10 lawn sports: Horseshoes, Bocce, Croquet, Petanque, Badminton, Lawn Bowling, Polish Horseshoes, Corn Hole, Kan-Jam, and Stump.

When Brooks Butler Hays dream of a horseshoes national championship was shattered by a beer bottle shard in his left heel, he decided to become a writer. Brooks fancies himself a utility player in the game of prose and continues to search for that one big book deal, the one that might allow him to return to his lost dream of professional lawn sporting. Like most narcissists, he believes he deserves that break. Jeremy Stein is an art director/designer/illustrator with skills in storyboarding and animation. He has won a CLIO award in the category of Innovative Media. http://jeremysteindesign.com/
