Anything-goes catch wrestling from England merged with the rough-and-tumble fighting of the American frontier to spawn one of the most lethal fighting arts ever - North American catch-as-catch-can wrestling. This book chronicles the exploits of an elite group of wrestlers who took on all comers in packed arenas, carnivals and dirt lots all across America. Contains matches featuring wrestler, boxers and jiu-jitsu practitioners and a superb collection of old photos, poster and ads.
