ERIC FREEMAN was a talented sportsman, able to mix it on the sporting fi elds in summer and winter. Cricket was his calling in the summer whilst Australian Rules Football was his winter pursuit. Along the way he represented Port Adelaide in both ball sports as well as representing South Australia in cricket and football. It was in cricket that he reached the pinnacle – representing Australia at Test level and touring with Australian teams to New Zealand, England, India and South Africa. It was a complete life after the highs ERIC FREEMAN of the sporting fields but family tragedies interposed on the Freeman family. Man For All Seasons is a must-read story for all those interested in sport as it then was and how one deals with life’s tragedies.

This book is available in both limited edition hardback ($45.00) and paperback ($35.00), with both editions being signed by Eric Freeman and the author, David Jenkins.
