A 200 Year Collection.
From the Dove and the Don to football's tribal passions; from legends and larrikins to the coming of the corporate box; from Olympic champions to the wry side of sport - this collection presents an array of inspired writing.
David Headon, noted scholar of Australian sport and avid fan of great sports writing, has searched high and low to find writing that sings and cracks, that celebrates both sporting and verbal prowess. Contributors include many of Australia's best-known writers. As they depict the heroes and highlights of our sporting history, we see how sport has brought us together and shown us at our best.
