The Great Laurie Nash played Australian
Football and Cricket at the highest levels. This book, written
by one of Australia's foremost sporting historians, takes
us from the early years in Melbourne and Launceston to lakeside
South Melbourne and beyond.
A true champion and character in
this great era of Australian sport, Laurie Nash was never
far from controversy and never guilty of false modesty. Adored
by teammates and feared by opponents, he was always at odds
with the "establishment" whose decisions often denied the
sporting public of seeing more of this Australian hero.
Although Laurie Nash is a distant
memory and figure of history, his life story is now recorded
with over fifty photographs and cartoons from the period in
this important book.
