In the 1960s, newly minted teacher Peter O'Brien began working at a one-teacher school in a small village called Weabonga, nearest town Tamworth.

When Peter got to the school, he was only 20 years of age, and found he had 18 students, ranging in age from 5 years old to 16. The challenges were immense, not to mention his own terrible living quarters and inadequate diet, or the terrible isolation he felt so far from family, friends and his 'special lady friend'. What follows is a delightful and fascinating account of the two years Peter spent in Weabonga, the friends he made there and the children whose lives were forever changed for the good by having an industrious and caring teacher.

Part old-timer's story, part Australiana, part memoir of struggle and triumph, this is an unusual book that will appeal to all kinds of readers.
