Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The origin story of the Frisbee soars with unexpected twists and turns. Fred Morrison is credited as the inventor of the Frisbee, but for centuries folks have been flipping for flying discs. Ancient Greeks flicked discs, and beginning in the 1920s, college kids at Yale University were tossing pie tins. Fred lived in California and had no idea about ancient Greeks or East Coast college kids. His invention quest began in 1932 after tossing a tin popcorn lid around the backyard. For more than twenty years, Fred and his wife, Lu, tried and failed to perfect a flying-disc concept. Eventually they created what we know today as the Frisbee. Their story is full of good old-fashioned perseverance, success, and fun!
Subject: Flying discs (Game) > Juvenile literature.
Genre: Juvenile works.
