This new addition to the non-fiction picture book series Our Stories is about sports and sportsmanship in Australia.

Australia's passion for sport defines us: our history, our tradition, our values, our identity. These are the stories of the sportsmen and women whose talent stopped the nation. These are the moments when we threw our arms in the air and cheered.

  • Sections on cricket (the Ashes), boxing, horse-racing (the Melbourne Cup), swimming, football and running.

  • Includes Indigenous content as well as highlighting the role of women.

  • Part of the Our Stories series.
