Can you pick James Hird’s great grand-father in the photo on the front cover? Who was the Carlton coach (and Test cricketer) who grew up on the Goldfields? Who was “Best on Ground” in the 1914 VFL Grand Final? Where did he die? Who was the indigenous defender who starred in the 1950 VFL Grand Final? Who is the champion woman footballer whose dad was a great VFL full-back?
Find the answers to these questions and much more, in this one-eyed family story of Aussie Rules by Kevin Reed, who believes that to truly understand a sport it helps to know its history from different perspectives. Does your family have a similar story?

“This wonderful book offers a unique account of the development of Australian Rules. Kevin Reed has inadvertently set a challenge for potential writers and researchers to publish … similar unique accounts.” 
- Dr Paul Callery
