While researching Bobby Walkerâ€™s career with Hearts we constantly heard that no book had ever been produced. This started a project to research and document Bobbyâ€™s life and career. This book has many images which cannot be sourced in modern day publications. It will serve as a tribute and tremendous record for Hearts fans and historians. It will also be appreciated by football historians the world over with its fantastic record of the Bobby Walker era with Hearts and Scotland
This is the story of Scotlandâ€™s first superstar considered by many to be the finest player in Europe in a distinguished period spanning from 1896 â€“ 1913. He is the only Scottish player to be granted a national testimonial. The book reveals the highs and lows of his career with Hearts and his outstanding international record. It details his personal lifestyle as a player and in retirement. Also, his fight with alcohol prior to his death in 1930 aged just 51.
