Strong Man Stunts Made Easy free pdf "ISN'T it strange how we connect certain things with certain events in our lives? Whenever the question of strength is mentioned the vision of the great George Hackenschmidt floats before my eyes. I can never forget the night when George jumped upon the stage from a stage box-seat to confront Jack Carkeek, who was then the wrestling champion of the world. He leapt from the ledge of the box like a panther, tossing away the robe that covered him. It was so dramatic-but not so dramatic as the climax it created. Carkeek was speechless with amazement. He-the great wrestler who feared no man. He staggered against the stage curtain as though he had been struck a blow, heedless of the words of challenge that streamed from Hackenschmidt's lips. Carkeek was like a man paralyzed. He made a few incoherent attempts to speak, and left the stage, but never for a moment did his eyes leave the magnificent form of the strange young challenger." -George F. Jowett This is a restored and re-formatted edition of Jowetts's original 1930 booklet. The text remains exactly as written in 1930. A must have in your collection.
