The story of the local kid, born five miles down the road from White Hart Lane stadium, who became the hero Tottenham and England greatly needed, stepping out of the suburbs and into the limelight. Harry Kane is a Spurs boy through and through - 'one of our own', as the fans' ditty goes - and a legend in the making. He proved to be one of the Lane's most promising players. After graduating through the youth ranks, Kane had his first Premier League start in 2014, leading to his winning the Golden Boot after scoring twenty-five goals in the 2015/16 season. The boy who started out in the same junior club as David Beckham, the boy who was rejected by Arsenal because he wasn't big or quick enough, the boy who made Ars�ne Wenger regret his decision after Kane proved the Gunners wrong, had become Tottenham's most promising striker Now, in the first ever biography of the striker, bestselling football writer Frank Worrall delves into why Harry Kane became his club's, and his nation's, great hope, and how he got to that position, all seemingly from nowhere. He delves into what makes Harry tick, his hopes and dreams and just why Manchester United was willing to pay up to �60 million for his skills.

"Allegheny County in southwestern Pennsylvania was for many years a staging area of westward migration. Thousands of early pioneers passed through it and thousands more stayed. Representatives of many of these early settlers, perhaps the majority, are immortalized in this work in genealogical and biographical sketches. The sketches, numbering approximately 2,250 and naming a total of 50,000 related persons, generally treat subjects who were born in the early nineteenth century, with reference to immediate forebears of the late eighteenth century. The sketches typically mention the date and place of birth and marriage of the principal subject, the place of birth of his parents and often grandparents, sometimes the name of the first ancestor in America, and details of religion, education, military service, occupation, home, and residence" -- publisher website (December 2008).

Harry Kane - Golden Boy tells the story of Harry Kane's incredible performances for England at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where he captained his country to the semi-finals and fourth place. Written by journalist and Spurs fanatic Andy Greeves, with forewords from Kane's former Tottenham coach Chris Ramsey and club legend Les Ferdinand, the book takes a look back at the striker's performances in all of England's World Cup matches in Russia, which included a trio of goals against Panama and the Three Lions' first hat-trick at the tournament since 1986. Also covered is the story of Kane's formative years at Chingford Foundation School, his rejection by Spurs' great North London rivals Arsenal and loan spells with the likes of Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City prior to his emergence as leading light for club and country and a major contender for the 2018 Ballon d'Or. As Kane prepares to lead Tottenham Hotspur into their brand new £850m, 62,000-seater stadium, the book also takes a look at his goal-packed seasons with the Lilywhites so far, that has seen him score 140 goals for the club including 108 Premier League strikes in just 150 matches. Having recently signed a new contact to keep him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2024, Spurs supporters are looking forward to plenty more goals from a striker they class as ";one of our own";.
