About the Author
Joan Harvey is a retired teacher and a mother to one biological child and many of her former students. Growing up, Harvey listened to the local radio station as cricket culture was becoming a way of life in Barbados. Cricket was heard everywhere on the island, from the yard to the pastures to the unpaved roads and villages and children would make their own bats, balls, and stumps. This is where her life-long love of the sport was fostered.
