AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The first Australian cricket team to tour England was a group of Aboriginal stockmen. This is their story.

'In 1868 a determined team of Aboriginal cricketers set off on a journey across the world to take on England's best.

'Led by star all-rounder Johnny Mullagh, and wearing caps embroidered with a boomerang and a bat, they delighted crowds with their exceptional skill.

'From the creators of Jandamarra, this is the remarkable story of the real first eleven.' (Publication summary)
