Frisbee: A practitioner's manual and definitive treatise by Dr. Stancil E.D. Johnson

The front cover, alone, tells the story of the fascinating, free-spirited life of the Frisbee aficionado.

Frisbee is for the bell-bottomed, soldier-booted, business-shoed, sandaled, sneakered and the flip-flopped. It's for everyone!

The fun begins with mastering the basic catch, just like this brave serviceman fighting Communism in Vietnam. After a day of bayoneting Cong, it's time to cut loose!

Even ladies can get in on the act -- under the watchful, lecherous eye of a man, of course! Here's a young beauty trying it out at a well-attended Frisbee jamboree.

Just like people in America, there are all kinds of different Frisbees.

Frisbees -- or "discs" -- can be carried about in an attractive sachel-like carrying sack, so the fun is always near at hand!

Make sure you're Disc Bag is properly stocked with only the essentials. You never know when you may have to repair a Frisbee or perform brain surgery or a Cesarean section on a bystander.

Even philosophers enjoy discoursing about the teleological and eschatological potentialities of the Frisbee.

And the eggheads in the meteorological department like to get in on the fun, too! Frisbees are affected by weather.

Once all the stuffy talk is finished, it's time to get down to the business of having fun with the Frisbee, as these young people are at this well-attended Frisbee "happening."

Once in the park, wearing his gym socks and sport shorts, you'd be surprised who's a closet-Frisbee-expert! Check out this pedantic catch!

. . . and this exuberant throw.

Hey buddy! With an arm like that, you should be lobbing hand grenades in Khe Sanh!

After a weekend of peyote and mead, Frisbee can be fun for the entire commune!

At the end of the day, it must be remembered that this is the only known existing photograph of Harvey J. Kukuk.

So, the next time some uptight square says to you, "Why don't you stop that silly Frisbeeing and get a job?" you say to him, "Stop cramping my style, man, I'm just going with the flow!"
