Australian football Legend Graham 'Polly' Farmer, is one of the 12 inaugural Legends to be inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 1996.
As a young boy growing up in a home for Aboriginal children, Polly Farmer set himself the goal of reaching the highest echelons of Australia's most popular homegrown sport. Through hard work and sheer determination, he made it to the top and stayed there with a leavening of pure natural brilliance. Not only did Polly Farmer claim a position among the greatest footballers of all time, he changed the game's very nature.
Polly Farmer traces the story of an iconic footballer's sometimes tortuous path to national stardom and vividly recreates the crowning achievements of his 20-year playing career. (publisher blurb)
