In August 1905 a party of young men set sail for England. Amongst them were ordinary farmers and bootmakers, a miner and a bank clerk. Together they made up the All Blacks, an unkwn rugby team from Auckland, New Zealand. And they had come to show the world what they could do. What they didn't kw was that they were bound for fame. The first game was in Devon, 'played in golden farm light, a surprising victory'. By December they had become the 'wonderful All Blacks' who had beaten Yorkshire 40-0, England 15-0 and Ireland 15-0. People stopped them in the streets. In this melding of true history and imagination, Lloyd Jones has recreated an unforgettable journey from incence to celebrity.
'Mister Pip' is the first of Lloyd Jones's books to be published in the UK. He lives in Wellington, New Zealand.
