Susanna Howe traces the development of snowboarding from its roots beginning with those snow-revolutionaries that got the sport off the ground, right through the very best in the world today. It is the skill and expertise of those around the world who are the finest in the sport that got snowboarding its proper recognition and respect necessary for its inclusion as a full medal sport in Nagano. Ms. Howe also examines the fashion trends the sport has created, along with the various styles of snowboarding necessary, depending on the geographical location you're in throughout the U.S.

This is the ideal, most complete examination of this sport for those already participating, those getting ready to take the plung, and for those who are curious now and will be hooked once they see snowboarding at the Winter Olympics Games.
