CHAPTER 8: RECREATION GEOGRAPHY

Here are just a few of the lists you'll find in Chapter Eight...

#1 isn't Russia, but yet one of the most famous chess matches in history occurred in the #1 country (Fischer vs. Spassky in 1972).

Ten Most Populous Countries Never To Win an Olympic Medal
The gold medal of geography goes to the person who can guess #1 correctly.

States with the Highest Number of Miniature Golf Courses per Million People
