Yorkshire County Cricket Club is by far the most successful county cricket club in history. Since the County Championship was constituted in 1890, Yorkshire has, in addition to one shared Championship, won it outright on 30 occasions and Yorkshire cricket supporters take great pride in the county's cricketing history. As well as the club's successes, there have been 42 Yorkshire players chosen as Wisden Cricketers of the Year. Many have been world-class cricketers such as Wilfred Rhodes, Len Hutton, Fred Trueman and Geoffrey Boycott, with distinguished England careers. Many thousands of Wisden pages have been filled with Yorkshire cricket, Yorkshire cricketers and Tests in Yorkshire. Wisden on Yorkshire is a fascinating journey mixing great matches, personalities, feats, controversies and unusual occurrences. Presenting the best Yorkshire info from the Almanack archives, Wisden on Yorkshire includes: Focus on the iconic Yorkshire players, such as Truman and Boycott Cricketers of the Year and Obituaries The County's history, highlighting significant years and extracts from reviews of those years Fascinating stories of both the highs and lows in the club's history colour plate section containing superb classic images Detailed records, match reports and scorecards

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Talking to Duncan Hamilton about writing & cricket is a pleasing way to pass an hour. His life story trips off the tongue, doubtless honed over the years but related in good humour and in a quiet, matter-of-fact way that belies what he's already achieved in a relatively short time writing sports books." * Cricket Yorkshire.com (May 2011) *
"Yorkshire County Cricket Club is one of the most successful clubs in county history, and this book presents the best information from the Almanack archives, including: the county's history, the 20 greatest Yorkshire matches, iconic players, the 20 greatest international matches played in Yorkshire, such as Botham's 1981 'miracle', and much more." * Yorkshire Ridings Magazine (June 2011) *
