The embodiment of Yorkshire cricket for over half a century, Lord Hawke, together with W.G. Grace and Lord Harris, was one of the founding fathers of the modern game. During a long and colourful career he captained Cambridge University, Yorkshire (despite being born in Lincolnshire) and England – his record for his country being unequalled. Drawing on an extensive range of contemporary sources, James P. Coldham has created a compelling account of the controversial, outspoken, and highly successful aristocrat.
