Raymond Boyd Dunn

Author Raymond Boyd Dunnabout this book: This book is about the sport of Cricket - in particular Schoolboy cricket. It is not an autobiography, but it is based on my experiences at a boarding school for boys in Rockhampton, Queensland. It was written originally for my grandson, and I believe it is suitable reading for any aspiring young cricketer, showing how determination and perseverance can attain the ultimate goal. It takes place during the war years of 1943 -44 in a city teeming with American Servicemen, and depicts the adventures of a young country boy leaving the comfort and safety of his home for the first time. The book is aimed at boys who are interested in the sport, (or even girls, as some of the fairer sex are now playing the game.) The cover depicts the facade of the Rockhampton Boys' Grammar School as it was at the time of the story. I have allowed myself the indulgence of including a photograph of me during my period of attendance there. I didn't always look like my profile image.
