Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There weren t too many footballers better than Dad; there were few hard working mothers better than Mum; there was a Granny as good as you can get; and then, there was us a bunch of Noongar kids growing up in a small town ...No Free Kicks is the inspiring and moving account of the experiences of one indigenous Australian family.From the hardships of extreme poverty, from living in both the bush and the city, to studying at University, Eric Hayward tells the epic saga of his family, and in doing so provides a unique snapshot of Twentieth Century Australia.Through his eyes we learn of the family s long affiliation with Australian Rules Football, and how their talent and this association made the family strong, imbuing them with pride, and becoming a powerful factor in their lives.Following in the storytelling traditions of AB Facey, No Free Kicks is an ordinary Australian life story that effortlessly claims it s right to be told. It is a story that should be read by all Australians.
