Synopsis Jack High, the Mazda International Bowls Tournament held in 1981, was a highly successful ABC television series. Superb bowling matches between four top overseas bowlers and four of the best Australian exponents of the game enthralled millions of Australian viewers.

In this book, well-known bowling writer Gerry Pynt and photographer Robert Gray have captured the excitement and highlights of the series and have created a permanent record of an unforgettable tournament.

The book also takes a look at the fascinating backgrounds of each of the players. Gerry Pynt's in-depth interviews reveal the contrasting hopes, fears, beliefs and ambitions of the bowlers who have reached the top.
