AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A simple boy with an amazing gift.
A promise to a dying man.
And a nation that wants to believe.
Can a twelve year old boy be the hero his country needs?

'David Donald is a simple boy with an amazing bowling arm. He's a spinner who becomes the stuff of legend. His guardian, Uncle Michael, is also a spinner — a great Australian bullshit artist, a shyster and mythmaker. It's between the wars. It's the glory days of cricket.

'Together, David and Michael will rout the English and reveal more than a little about the shaping of the Australian psyche.' (From the publisher's website.)
