This review is from: Behind the Lions: Playing Rugby for the British & Irish Lions (Hardcover)
A perfectly-timed history of the Lions - just as the excitement is building towards 2013 - and what makes this even better is that it is a history of the Lions like no other. The authors have done an extraordinary job to tell this story primarily in the players' words - from all the superstars of the modern era, right back to the very first tourists in 1888. Their research to dig up letters, diaries and old newspaper articles for the early tourists is just astounding - and casts a light on the early tours like no other. I can't recommend this enough.
