Description - Legends by Sean Gorman

Indigenous Australians have given us some of our greatest football champions. With names like Farmer, Winmar, Long, Rioli and Goodes, the stories of Indigenous footballers are some of the most compelling in the great game of AFL. The journey for some has been one of great struggle and difficulty. For them, football was the only way out. This set of biographies uses the players' own descriptions of their lives, their careers and the people who helped them achieve success. While some of these players have shared experiences, for others the story was different. All are inspirational. From Farmer to McLeod, and Jackson to Matera, in the tradition of great Australian storytelling, these men's lives are great Australian stories about Aboriginal Football Legends!
