Despite commonly held misconceptions, Australian football has been played in Queensland for a long time. With a historian's approach and a story-teller's style, Murray Bird describes how footy started in The North in 1866 and explains how the many personal links with The South kicked it along. His thorough research has uncovered some remarkable nineteenth century characters who, having fallen in love with the local code, were acting on their heartfelt desire to make footy the national game. It's a terrific yarn, and my favourite type of history, at once informative and entertaining. - John Harms
