Some years ago, the history of Captains Flat was documented in the book Boom To Bust And Back Again, pictured to the right. A larger version of the image can be viewed by clicking on the picture. It was first published in 1983 and the second, updated edition was published in 1995. It comprises just over 100 pages of high-quality, glossy print, including many high quality photographs and maps. The book can be purchased from most of the town's businesses for $25, or at the door at the monthly Markets. It can also be mailed to you. Please contact the webmaster for more details. Mail order will incur a small extra charge for postage. Credit card payment can be arranged for mail order.
