Summary

Biography of Joe Darling, outstanding Australian cricketer who captained the Australian Test Team 21 times during the 1890s and 1900s. He was also a farmer and politician in Tasmania who was highly successful and popular in the farming, Hobart and rural communities. He belonged to the Darling family which played significant roles in the agricultural and manufacturing industries of Australia for over a century.
