Publishers Description: Cricket is a game that honours and cultivates its history. The glorious shots in Long Shadows are taken from the immense Fairfax archive and they provide a striking visual feast for lovers of the game. Some of them have been rarely seen, others were developed from the original glass negatives and yet others have never been published before. Together they represent a fascinating reflection of the enduring place cricket occupies in the heart of the nation. Each section in Long Shadows features an overview from some of our finest sports journalists and avid cricket supporters. Between them they take a multilayered look at the game, from the champions and legends of the Test arenas to country teams in dusty paddocks and bare-legged kids in suburban backyards. Long Shadows is part-history, part-social document and a loving, eloquent paean to the traditions and pleasures of the game.
