This book salutes the skill of Australia's dedicated bush cricketers - and the endeavours of the not-so-skilled. In this new and updated edition, Ken Piesse and Alf Wilson celebrate what it means to play cricket in the Australian bush: the competition, the mateship, the courage and the hilarity.
There are player portraits to amaze and amuse, from the fastest scorers to the biggest hitters, from the tallest to the heaviest, from the wildest to the best attired (think flippers, snorkel and mask). 'Bradmans Of The Bush' is a marvellous collection of tall tales, stats and one-off feats, which offers a wonderful insight into Australian cricket folklore and the inimitable Aussie sense of humour.
