'comfortably the most interesting and entertaining history of the Lions' - The Irish Times

'a magical history' - Daily Telegraph

'Fascinating . . . both heart-warming and enthralling' - The Sunday Times

For over 130 years the British & Irish Lions have stood out as a symbol of the ethics, values and romance at the heart of rugby union. To represent the Lions is the pinnacle for every international player in Britain and Ireland, and the dream of tens of thousands of avid fans who fol-low them. A Lions tour, undertaken every four years to the southern hemisphere, is more than a series of rugby matches played out on foreign fields; it is an epic crusade where the chosen few face a succession of mental and physical chal-lenges on their way to the Test arena, where they do battle with the superpowers of the world game.

Behind the Lions sees seven esteemed rugby writers delve to the very heart of what it means to be a Lion, using diaries and letters from those who pioneered the concept, to interviews with a vast array of players who have followed in their footsteps. In so doing they have uncovered the passion, pride and honour experienced when taking up the unique challenge of a Lions tour. This is a tale of heart-break and ecstasy, humour and poignancy that is at once inspirational, moving and utterly compelling. And it is the only story worth hearing: the players' own.

Stephen Jones is a multi award-winning Sunday Times rugby correspondent and world-renowned rugby expert. He is the author of several books on the sport, including Lion Man: The Autobiography of Ian McGee-chan, Midnight Rugby: Triumph and Shambles in the Professional Era, and Endless Winter: Inside Story of the Rugby Revolution which was the winner of the prestigious William Hill Sports Book of the Year award.
