The book is an insight into the life of Polocrosse from its early beginnings in 1948 at Fort Victoria (now Masvingo) and covers 60 years of development through turbulent times to be one of the leading nations in the sport. It recollects all the characters that played their part through different clubs and brings out the humour, frustrations and determination that made this small turbulent country a nation to be reckoned with. It digs deep into the past in search of where it all began before Australia gave the modern sport its name and follows through with the sequence of nations joining the global family of Polocrosse. An easy read and with a lot of photo’s, it takes the older generation down memory lane whilst giving the younger, a sense of belonging and a proud contributor of a growing sport.
