For each county, Bird gives his best anecdotes about the club, its grounds, and his personal experience with it, both as a player and an umpire.
I think the international section is a bit unneccesary, as it does not go into anywhere near the depth of the rest of the book. That would be better suited for another Dickie Bird release.
The most remarkable thing about White Cap and Bails is that, for the most part, it avoids repeating the same information from Dickie Bird: My Autobiography.
I reccomend this book to anybody who loves cricket.
He states at the beginning that after he had written his Autobiography (which I have), he thought it was the end. However, Lodge and Mosley persuaded him to write about the grounds and to visit them, and this he has done.
Recommended for any Cricket Lover, and any cricket historians!
Take the book with you on holiday or on a long haul flight, as there are some very amusing anecdotes to break the ennui.
