All about the 1st All Black tour of England Wales Scotland and France in 1908 Based on fact with an interesting story of what it might have been like from the 6 week boat journey to their overwhelming experience of fameYou don t have to be a rugby fan to enjoy this book Always remember that you are absolutely uniue Just like everyone else Margaret MeadI have never before used the word uniue to describe a book I know every book is somehow different from the millions of others composed since the development of cave Kiss of the Spiderwoman painting evenlagiarists apply their own own fingerprints to stolen letters Yet every book I have read has somehow developed grown from obvious The Mutants Are Coming previous roots since before Ovid wrote the Ilead Sometimes we see a new genre did Sherlock start detective fiction Who invented forensic criminology as a sub genre Yet always there is a thread torevious workI have given 5 stars to this book not because it is great in any way except it asses my litmus test uestion Did this book change the way I think in this case about writing style which in this case is uniueLloyd Jones s little book apparently fits into the historical fiction category because it tells a story about real eople carrying out historically correct actions in a realistic recreation of the time In this case it is the story of the Alles in meinem Dasein ist Musik... party of 29 young men who left New Zealand in 1905 to travel to Great Britain andlay all comers at Rugby Union the first All Blacks The story is well worth the tale A team of nobodies took on the world They Witch Is Why The Moon Disappeared played a total of thirty five matches which included five Tests and only lost once a controversial defeat by Wales 3 nil They scored 830oints and conceded only 39 inventing a truly new form of rugby football They then layed the first ever Test in France and games against Canada before returning home heroes to New ZealandThe story is than that though because as the title suggests it *is largely about that apparently modern idea of FAME This was not invented by erformers mobbed by the *largely about that apparently modern idea of FAME This was not invented by Underground (Unbelievers, performers mobbed by the like Frank Sinatra the Beatles and Justin Bieber Instead this collection of farmers boot makers builders and the like closed down entire towns when theylayed dominated the The Letters and Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons press for months and attracted the attention of the very first groupies willing to do anything to get attention from these young menTo the writing then Its only about 160ages and is a melange of writing forms It is often straight out description from the viewpoint of someone not named but who knows the thinking of all the layers as they react to the strange new world they find them in It s a class bound world which cannot cope with these antipodeans destroying their teams a icture of the societal revolution that would come less the 10 years later with war A The author sees them as The Purposeful Graduate part of this revolution in this lyricalassage Einstein and Matisse caused a stirthat yearFreud came laterThey bought to the surfacehitherto unseen worldsDreams inner truththe essence of thingsand applied to them namescolourformulae The book is also filled with lists menus from dinners Inscriptions for Headstones players and how they earned their living in an amateur age Dance Cards injury lists and many other apparently random details which actually complete theicture There are also chunks of dialogue carrying out the same function There are chunks in Thailand's Sickest - Hell To Pay poetic form like this recognition of the first signs of fame By now we d moved from the world of ordinary menwe were the stuff of the shop windowWhat children s birthdays are made ofWe were ChristmasThe bubble in theopThe jam on the breadWe were the Huumetsaarin jouluyö place smiles come from People flocked to see usas the did the Africanigmiessword swallowing Moroccansthe bloated Japanese carpand Annette Kellermanat the London HippodromeWe who had come to discover found ourselves discoveredand in the Retail.

O l'inizio Da uel momento in oi mietono un successo dopo l'altro Il ubblico li adora Le signore li coccolano I mariti li invidiano Per loro vengono organizzate cene balli e serate di gala Sono ospitati e accolti con ogni onore in molte città della vecchia Europa dall'Inghilterra all'Irlanda alla Scozia al Galles alla Francia Curiosi e smarriti attraversano il Nuovo MondoOgnuno di loro ossiede una buona dose di coraggio ingenuità elegante naturalezza e generosità senza ari Un irrefrenabile iacere di giocare insieme e uno spirito di suadra ferreo e indiscutibile A dicembre a soli uattro mesi dalla artenza sono già i «meravigliosi All Blacks» che nella classic.
