Polly Farmer

A revised and updated edition of the 1994 original publication about Australian football Legend Graham ‘Polly’ Farmer, one of the 12 inaugural Legends to be inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 1996. As a young boy growing up in a home for Aboriginal children, Polly Farmer set himself the goal of reaching the highest echelons of Australia’s most popular homegrown sport. Through hard work and sheer determination, with a leavening of pure natural brilliance, he made it to the top—and stayed there. Not only did Polly Farmer claim a position among the greatest footballers of all time, he changed the very nature of the game.


Steve Hawke

Steve Hawke lives in the Perth Hills these days, but still retains strong links to the Kimberley through his work there with Indigenous people and organisations. As well as the Polly Farmer biography he has written two histories, Noonkanbah and A Town Is Born , a children’s novel, Barefoot Kids, and a play, Jandamarra, all with Kimberley themes.
