This book tells the true story of a team of Aboriginal cricketers who undertook a triumphant tour of England in 1868. Terry Denton’s illustrations enhance the text and give a lighter tone to what is ultimately a sad story. After the death of one of the team, the remainder returned home to little or no recognition of their achievements.
