This biography of a great Test cricketer looks back over 80 years and evokes the atmosphere of Ames's boyhood in East Kent. It traces his progress as a young cricketer which led to selection for his first three tours of Australia in 1928-29 and led to his distinguished career in the game. The author has drawn on the reminiscences of distinguished contemporaries, including Sir George Allen, R.E.S.Wyatt, Sir Leonard Hutton and Sir Donald Bradman in establishing Ames's claims to be regarded as the finest wicket-keeper batsman in the history of the game. Many previously unpublished photographs are included, as well as a statistical analysis of his career.show more
