Spirit of the Ashes: The Mystique, the/Egan, Jack/Hardb/0977545741/S025-G
It's nearly twenty years since there was an appetite for an Ashes Test series in Australia such as that already building in the winter of 2006. Public excitement has led to sell-out demand for tickets for the series, which begins in November. Wilkinson Publishing and popular cricket writer and TV documentary maker Jack Egan have put together the total package for the Ashes series. The author tells in fascinating detail the stories of the batsmen, bowlers and captains who brought those turning points about. The book features the words, insights, photographs and archival material of every Ashes series, including the great players from Bradman to Warne and Ponting.
The 50 minute DVD included with the book is a fascinating program in its own right. It includes unseen and exclusive footage of Sir Donald Bradman, compiled and from the author, award winning cricket writer, producer and historian, Jack Egan's time with Sir Donald Bradman. Plus "lost" archival footage from the very first Ashes series.
