“I have included maps, photos and plenty of interesting facts about the people and the place,” he said.
The tiny school of Booyal are set to celebrate it’s centenary this weekend and Mr Stedman is encouraging Childers to attend.
“I try to attend as many events as I can out at Booyal and with their milestone celebration we all must support the small community,”
It has been 100 years since the first students started their education at Booyal PHOTO: JODIE DIXON Central State School, and for the tiny school it is a massive achievement for the 23 current students of the school.
Mr Stedman said he will be at the school early on Saturday and looks forward to discussing his book with the locals and he hopes locals will support Booyal.
