The Awa Book of New Zealand Sports Writing

Author(s): Harry Ricketts

∙ Physical Education and Health

New Zealand is a sports-mad country, a state of affairs that is mirrored by a wealth of writing on sport and sports - not only by sports journalists, but by novelists, poets, columnists, historians, essayists and academics. In this sweeping and often surprising anthology, Harry Ricketts casts the net over both much-loved works, such as Lloyd Jones's The Book of Fame on rugby, and long-lost treasures such as Samuel Butler's poem 'The English Cricketers'. The collection traverses sports as diverse as fly-fishing, athletics, motor-racing and mountaineering, and may even introduce you to some you haven't heard of. First published June 2010.
