This book is a comprehensive history of polo in Argentina, from its beginnings in the 1870s to the summer of 2013. The history of the early pioneers is explored with data not previously published, gathered from contemporary sources. International competitions include the Olympic Games, the Cup of the Americas and the World Championships. Particular attention is given to the major clubs, the Argentine and Hurlingham Open Championships and the National Handicap Tournament. Several of the elite players merit individual or family mini-biographies. Several myths in Argentine polo are debunked, based upon careful analysis of contemporary sources. Travels abroad by Argentine teams are fully described as are the foreign teams that competed in Argentina. The contents of the book are enhanced by the author's personal observation of significant events and his friendship with many of the participants in the story. This work represents the first book devoted to polo Argentina in more than sixty years.
