Description - Boomerang and Bat by Mark Greenwood

In 1868 a determined team of Aboriginal cricketers set off on a journey across the world to take on England's best.

Led by star all-rounder Johnny Mullagh, and wearing caps embroidered with a boomerang and a bat, they delighted crowds with their exceptional skill.

From the creators of Jandamarra, this is the remarkable story of the real first eleven.
