On the medium strip of the Noorat, McKinnons Bridge Road are several other plaques relating to him. A tree was planted by his elder daughter in 1996, during the Alan Marshall Festival to honour his life and work.
The other depicts a map of the Alan Marshall Discovery Trail, which shows the location of and describes 16 places that played an important part of his childhood. If you follow the trail, not only will you see what a young Alan Marshall did but describes the history of a bygone era.
Definitely endorse the comments below. My older brother had to read the book for his english class and I used to sneak it to read it in bits and pieces. Since then i have reread it many times and still enjoy it. It always reminds me of my own childhood growing up in the country. We lived 6 miles from the nearest town and it might as well have been 60 miles.I am 75 now and still have a battered copy of the book somewhere.
I have read that book so many times over the years, it brings back many childhood memories of going to school in the country at a small school and I always found the book a great inspiration.Dave Barry.
