Overview

"The Massey snowmobile shot forward, aimed directly at the wooden ramp. It only took a few seconds to cover the distance. He felt the sled start the climb up the ramp, listening to the noise of the rubber track thudding against the rough surface - the machine lifted and flew." This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in: sports or history. From Bombardier's first awkward invention to the sleek modern machines, snowmobiles have captured the hearts and imagination of winter enthusiasts across North America. This book traces the early development of this Canadian invention - and then takes you on an adventure to the North Pole, and behind the throttle of a championship snowmobile with Gilles and Jacques Villeneuve.
