Quick Overview

Our Don Bradman by Ken Piesse tells the story of Australia's sporting colossus throughout the 1930s, an idol for a nation ravaged by The Great Depression and unemployment, and with lingering memories of the horrors of The Great War. The greatest batsman of his or any other era, the Don's never-before-witnessed run-scoring feats attracted phenomenal interest, and raised spirits. 'I'll be Bradman and you can be the rest' was a common catch-cry in backstreet and playground matches in the city and the bush.

Details

To this day the majority of Sir Donalds numerous records remain unchallenged, and the phrase 'this could be the next Don Bradman' is often longingly used whenever an outstanding young player emerges. But there will never be another Don: his feats will never be surpassed, his Test batting average of 99.94 will remain forever unmatched. This loving, though not uncritical, centenary tribute to the Don in words, as well as over 200 cartoons, photographs, cigarette cards, posters, paintings, quotations and statistics, not only reveals the Don as the consummate batsman and captain but also as a husband and family man.
