Review:

A hugely entertaining read, shot through with the love and spirit of a people's game....This is a fine, often funny and always sports-soaked book. -- Chris Searle, Morning Star, May 2001

About the Author:

Basil Ashton Tinkler is a retired professional Civil Engineer who was concerned with sea defences, rivers and flood protection projects. In 1991 he was awarded the M.B.E. for services to the Water Industry. He was born and first worked in Lincolnshire, leaving the east wind behind and moving to Somerset in 1972, where he has lived since with his wife Jan. Their two sons and families are thoughtfully (for holidays) located in New Zealand and Canada respectively. Basil's interests are many and include golf, walking (with a group of old codgers) and gardening (out of necessity). Although he has written articles for magazines and papers for conferences, A Somerset Hero Who Beat the Aussies is his first book. A second is already being researched.
