Summary
Kidnapped on his ninth day of teaching with nine students, Rob Hunter retells the story of how Edwin John Eastwood, the Faraday kidnapper, having escaped from prison, burst into his remote South Gippsland school and at gun point took Rob and his nine students hostage. "Day 9 at Wooreen" paints a vivid picture of the Wooreen State School kidnapping of 1977. Written through the teacher's eyes, this gripping tale gives insight into the trauma experienced by the victims, the timely heroism of logging truck driver Robin Smith, and the bravery and commitment of the Victorian Police Force. The state school kidnappings of the 1970s shocked Australia. They stand as two of Victoria's most audacious and notorious crimes. The author celebrates the healing that is possible from such pain and torment, giving the reader renewed hope in a troubled world
