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 brings alive the story 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 Victoria Police. Rob celebrates the healing that is possible from such pain and torment, giving his audience renewed hope in a troubled world.
