Britain is rich in sporting heroes (men, women and animals!) and many are celebrated in sculptures around the country. These 'sporting immortals' are the focus of this beautifully illustrated and unique book. The author, Ian Hewitt, set out to discover the story of Britain's sporting legacy through the sculptures and distinctive memorials inspired by these heroes. The result of his travels is this book that provides a fascinating and vivid view of the history and development of British sport. Divided into eras of our sporting history, the book features a wide array of immortals accompanied by informative text about each subject and by specially commissioned, striking photographs of some truly fascinating sculptures. Legends include: Dixie Dean, Jackie Milburn, Mary Rand, Brian Clough, Fred Trueman, W G Grace, Virginia Wade, Fred Perry, Bobby Moore, Steve Redgrave, Matthew Pinsent and many others from 15 different sports.
