If you have any interest in cricket or have played in the Devon area you will be captivated. The way the author has worked in the technical details of the bowling actions with the story of that memorable event is very clever, the descriptions of the ground and the interaction of the crowd easily transports you back in time. With the illustrations of the gentlemen cricketers it’s also educational, a very well written and an enjoyable read
by Mervin Scott
Having played cricket on this ground many times, the author made it easy to imagine what it must have been like to be there for the first important game some 170 years earlier.
Authentic throughout, the story flows easily & what's not to love about cricket and your imagination to while away a few hours on a summer afternoon!
