Very nice, clean, tightly bound book celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Slovak Gymnastic Union Sokol in the U.S.A. which began in New York City in 1896. Book is written in both Czech and English and is illustrated with black and white photographs throughout (see pictures). The first chapters are about Sklovak history and the origin of of the Sokol movement, the sokol ideology, and the U.S.A. Sokols which began to spread across the midwest. By 1946 there were sokols from Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, New York, New Jersey and Minnesota. In this book there is also information about the sports and the people. It measures 7-3/4" x 10" -- pages are not numbered, but are considerable. Very seldom seen.
