Words from the Wise

December 2016 A few years ago I took on the role of sales representative for the company in Canberra and South East Coast of NSW. Much of the territory had vibrant and at times off beat independent booksellers, yet over the 4 years it has changed and it brings together a few of my thoughts. Other than Smiths Alternative bookshop closing and Electric Shadows closing Canberra City still has its key outlets: one that immediately comes to mind is Dymocks Canberra who holds the record for the store who has shifted most often in those 4 years. I dread the thought of shifting home, or shifting warehouses, but to shift a shop maybe 3 or 4 times in as many years; still, the new location looks great, nestled between a travel agent and David Jones. Taking the trek toward the Great Divide I pass through Cooma where two shops have gone over the 4 year period (we eventually had to do a write off on one of them - lost money). Over the Great Divide in and around the road kill and the ice on the windows of the car you now get to Merimbula to one bookseller - Collins Merimbula, a sturdy business hitched onto the local newsagent (it was once an A&R store). Over the road Booktique has gone after some years. Next town is Bega where there has only been one bookshop for as long as I can remember - Candelo Books - and they have a walk way to a coffee shop to boost the traffic flow. The once busy Batemans Bay will have its last bookshop "Hooked on Books" close in January after years of trying to remain profitable. Sadly the economics of a smaller bookshop and the limited margins don't cut it with the landlords when a frock shop or similar can work on such high margins. In all of these towns you have the choice of the limited offering of the DDS outlets. "Hooked on Books" was also an A&R franchise store. Staying with Batemans Bay for a few words: it was the coastal playground for the Canberra elite to have a weekender and spend vacation time there. What happened? These three coastal towns appear to be buoyant in terms of building growth, so why not bookshop growth? Have readers deserted traditional bricks and mortar at these towns? Or has the online ease of limitless listing of product broken the ability of towns to support two bookstores, or in the case of Batemans Bay, no bookseller? I do not know the answer: I do know for an independent book distributor it makes the cost of the fly away trips more problematic. Yet I enjoy my books and the conquest of keeping our authors and publishers in the main game.

National Library Bookshop

Speaking of the main game I am having some fun looking at the VM side of the displays especially with the star releases from Jimmy, Bruce and our Midnight Oil book. I know where my income comes from so I am delighted to see such VM thrust provided by the Midnight Oil book. David Tenenbaum has planned a media campaign all the way into Christmas and then there is a sting in the tail to come early next year: please keep up the strong VM for this book. I finished All I see is Mud and am really pleased to have this book and with the backing of the author/ publisher we have been given the green light to promote the POD availability globally with some advertising; we now need to tactically work out those foreign destination book outlets. By the way, it is quite similar in its rawness to All Quiet on the Western Front. Also started reading the first volume of the Martin Sharp biography by Lowell Tarling (ETT Imprint). What a startling life amid so many of the keys icons of entertainment and a close friend of Richard Neville. The story is peppered with his experiences with Eric Clapton, Jenny Kee, Richard Walshe, Robert Hughes and so on. Tom (the publisher) is planning a big piece in The Australian and plenty of ABC support. It took me back to the 60's hearing about those things that as a student we had only heard of and wondered about. By the way I was an upstart as a High School student, one who preferred going to Monash and Melbourne Universities for extra curricular activity it did not aid me as I missed university entry by 2 points. I have written elsewhere about Why Warriors Lie Down and Die, however this column has a wider circulation. Richard Trudgen wrote and published in the year 2000, to date it has sold some 40,000 copies without appearing on quintessential databases. I found it when reviewing a list of books on "National Reconciliation Week – Memoir and Social Commentary" and thought that if it was still in print we should pursue. Happy reading and heavy selling.

Why Warriors Pty Ltd

“Many books have been written about the Yolngu people of Arnhem Land, Australia. This one is very different. It speaks about the real situation that we face every day, a reality that is hard for people of another culture to imagine.” - Rev. Dr. Djiniyini Gondarra OAM, Yolngu Clan Elder Why Warriors Lie Down and Die is essential reading for anyone interested in Indigenous peoples. It offers deep insights for those who want a greater understanding of the issues involved in achieving true reconciliation, and provides hope and new direction for those searching for the answers as to why “the problems” seem to persist in Aboriginal communities. In Arnhem Land, as in Indigenous communities across Australia, the situation is dire. Indigenous health in Australia is now so bad that 45% of Aboriginal men and 34% of women die before the age of 45. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are also massively over-represented in the criminal justice system. Western Australia incarcerates the Aboriginal people of its State at 9 times the rate of Apartheid South Africa. Why Warriors Lie Down and Die provides a fresh analysis of this crisis and offers examples of how Indigenous people can once again take control of their own lives. Finding the real causes requires the reader to look at it from the other side of the cultural / language divide – the side where the Yolngu people live. The book Why Warriors Lie Down and Die takes us to that side. Told using a blend of critical and exploratory thinking, deep understanding of Yolngu culture, personal experience and powerful story-telling, Why Warriors is used by universities and schools across the country. This is a book for every Australian and is considered by many to be the essential handbook for people working in cross-cultural environments with Aboriginal peoples. Author Information Richard Trudgen has been a pioneering figure in community education and development for the last 43 years; of which the last 35 have been spent working alongside the Yolngu people of North East Arnhem Land. Richard was CEO of Aboriginal Resource Development Services (ARDS) for more than 10 years, where he established Yolngu Radio in 2003. For the last 15 years, Richard has been presenting the Bridging The Gap seminars to audiences across Australia. He is the author of the seminal book on Indigenous culture “Why Warriors Lie Down and Die“. His latest big project is to develop a complete e-learning school in Yolŋu Matha, the Indigenous language of North-east Arnhem Land. Richard speaks Djambarrpuyŋu and in 2015 was a finalist for the NT Senior Australian of the year award. Phone: 03 9762 9100 | Fax 03 9762 9200 Email: orders@dennisjones.com.au

Musquito was an aborigine who was active in the  resistance to white settlement in NSW and was exiled  to Norfolk Island in 1813. When Norfolk Island residents were moved to VDL he  became a well known figure in and around Hobart. He was responsible for organising the Tasmanians  against white settlement and was hanged for his part  of the murders that happened at Grindstone Bay in  1825.

Author Information Michael Powell until recently taught at UTAS and,  through his associations from his student days at  University of Sydney is organising publicity on  Radio National.  He will be reviewed in the  Mercury and in the Fairfax Media.

Early in 1822 an illiterate nineteen year‐old peasant in County Cork took part in a ‘Whiteboy’ action in the hope of  fairer rent and more land for his struggling family. Instead, he was transported to NSW for life. The story that follows will subvert popular notions of the convict experience. Cotter’s alliance with a fierce Aboriginal  leader conspired with his second ‘crime’ to introduce him to a world understood by few Europeans. The novel points to a haunting moment in Australia’s story, when white humility and aboriginal knowledge might have  combined to produce a kinder stewardship across the ancient land. Few invaders experienced that fleeting possibility  as intimately as Garrett Cotter. This is a story of power and exploitation, of betrayal and uncertain redemption. It offers a vivid reimagining of real  events in the far wilds of a high country ‘beyond the limits’. ‘An important story of banishment, displacement, and crucial first contact, Cotter also tells of a moving and unlikely  friendship between two outcasts. Here is beautiful, assured writing about people and place. A novel for readers of  Kate Grenville’s The Secret River.’ ‐ Clara Finlay

Available Now Traven Collins, a hack St Kilda writer is chosen to run a Writers’ Festival up near The Flinders Ranges. Unfortunately the road to Calangula, the site of this proposed extravaganza, runs past his old town of Story’s Crossing, where he hasn’t been for thirty years. But destiny doesn’t care what Traven thinks, and a mad Kenworth truck forces Traven off the main road onto a side road to Story’s Crossing. The Cross the locals call it. It’s 2008, hot and dry from the Big Drought, and The Cross, like all Aussie towns under stress, seems quieter and smaller than the town he remembers. And in the main street Traven runs into his former Girl Friday, Carmen. He hasn’t seen her for a dozen years, She’s got a new daughter, eleven years old. Hmmm. Well he did have that one drunken night with Carmen…. He runs into Astrid, the little girl who broke his heart way back when they were on the verge of the end of childhood. She’s many years older, like Traven of course, still has the magic, and is in trouble with bad people cooking meth. And he begins to fixate on the death, all those years ago, of his childhood mate Tully, who so loved horses he was named after the mighty Tulloch. As he recalls the troubles and joys of childhood such as the love of his young life Astrid, Traven finds himself drawn into the mystery of his great friend Tully, who died by drowning in the town creek. The creek that hasn’t had water for two years. Tully was a great swimmer, a junior athlete, how could he have drowned? Meanwhile his old girlfriend Astrid has come calling for his help because she’s become involved in the ‘speed’ business. Ice. Crystal Meth. Astrid, who betrayed him so cruelly way back. He’d even left the town behind him and headed for the Big Smoke because Story’s Crossing had been his personal cross to bear…in fact way back the kids used to joke that the stops on the railway line to Adelaide were The Stations of The Cross. So he’s back and he is forced into the role of Small Town Hamlet —avenging the sins of the past, and trying to avoid the trouble that seems to be looking for him. But he can’t avoid it and Death comes looking for its pay-off. And Traven is beginning to wonder what this Writers Festival is all about. After all, it’s set in not in a one-horse town, but a zero-horse town. There will be blood. The Country Jesus, is crime & mystery novel with a love of the bush and wayward tracks. And people die as Traven investigates the ancient crime against his friend, and a modern crime involving his childhood love.

Her husband was controversial. He was in the press, in the courts and in prison. Her husband was charismatic, voluble and irrepressible. He survived shipwreck, ruin and slander. Her husband was an entrepreneur, industrialist and pioneer. We continue to drink his beer; we still attend his theatre.  His legacy is concrete. His place in history is secure. But this is not his story. Sophia Degraves survives only as a silent register of birth and death. Nothing is known of her beyond the children she  bore and the death she died. This catalogue says nothing of the privations and aspirations of an invisible colonial  woman who built in flesh and blood what the men around her built with water and stone. This is her story, written by imagining what was real.  Runner up in the Erica Bell Foundation Literature Award 2015, this book focuses on the life of Sophia Degraves, wife of  Peter Degraves, the founder of Cascade Brewery and one of Tasmania’s most prominent early entrepreneurs. “A work of historical fiction in the truest sense. Overall, the effect is of a historical verisimilitude that sweeps us along as if we were walking beside Sophia in the shadow of Mount Wellington. It is a thoroughly charming book that brings to life a woman and a period that are both fascinating.” ~ Rohan Wilson, author and co-judge of the 2014 Erica Bell Literary Awards

Ngoanyana: A South African story is a vivid portrayal of growing up White in apartheid‐era South Africa.  John Nieuwenhuysen’s privileged upbringing on a South African farm as the grandson of a prosperous Irish‐born  ‘potato king’ contrasted starkly with the impoverished lives of the property’s African and ‘Coloured’ workers and their  families. His story combines love and nostalgia for a place and country of great beauty, with sadness and remorse at  the cruelty and discrimination of the harsh practices of apartheid, and customary White farmer rule.  Combining one man’s personal history with that of his nation, Ngoanyana is a poignant story, honestly told, with  lessons for us all about political power, the problems still faced by South Africa, and reconciliation. 

Author Information John Nieuwenhuysen AM is an emeritus professor of economics at Monash University in Melbourne, and a fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences of Australia. He holds the degrees of MA (Natal) and PhD (London School of Economics). Born in South Africa in 1937, he emigrated to Australia in 1963, where he began his academic career, working for twenty-six years at the University of Melbourne. Currently a board member of the Australian Multicultural Foundation, and chair of the board of the (Monash Prato) Bill Kent Foundation, his many earlier roles have included deputy chancellor of RMIT University; visiting professor at King’s College, London; chief executive of the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA); foundation director of the Monash Institute for the Study of Global Movements; and foundation director of the Commonwealth Government’s Bureau of Immigration, Multicultural and Population Research. John has chaired four Victorian State Government inquiries. One of these, in 1986, led to a radical and liberalising overhaul of the State’s liquor laws, which has stood the test of time. In 2003 John received the Order of Australia for this work, and for his contribution to independent public and private sector research on multicultural, immigration, equity, indigenous, taxation, labour and industry issues.

So I am going to ask this straight out: >Are your sales down? >Are your targets harder to hit? >Are you expected to sell more? >Are you sabotaging your own success? The old saying is so true "Nothing happens until a sale is made!" However, in todays competitive environment many people don't understand that there is a formula that will increase your sales. The Confessions of a Timeshare Salesman will guide you through the sales formula leaving you with only 1 outcome, SUCCESS. If the average sales person only reads 1 sales book per year, then be above the average and read this book. I have asked this question many times, "If you had the chance to be a professional Sales Person, Doctor or Lawyer, what would you be?" I would be a salesperson... Timeshare is renown to be the hardest form of sales, however the sales techniques and strategies can be transferred to any industry. "Did you ever think it would be possible that your clients would be asking to purchase your product or service before you showed them the price?" When you learn this you will master the art of selling. Learn the formula and you can write your own pay cheque... TODAY is YOUR day!!

For Pity Sake Publishing

In mid‐December 2013 Jennifer McDonald was diagnosed with breast cancer, an infiltrating lobular carcinoma to be exact.  Up until the moment of diagnosis she’d thought she was pretty in tune with her body, but she sure as hell didn’t see this coming. There’s no  breast cancer in her family and she has three sisters, two older and one younger, none of whom have been diagnosed with anything more  than an easily dispatched colorectal polyp. This prompted her son, 13 at the time, to ask the aunt who looked after him while she was in  surgery, “Why did it have to be my mum?”…Why indeed.  In a bid to make sense of what was happening to her, Jen started writing a series of blogposts entitled My Big Breast Adventure while  undergoing, if you’ll pardon the expression, the ‘pointy‐end’ of treatment throughout 2014 and 2015. With funny and provocative titles like  Cut, Poison, Burn…and Laugh, Dying and Other Inconveniences, What the FEC? and The Girl with the Dolphin Tattoo, Jen blogged 32 times  over that two year period garnering an avid following and touching many people’s lives.  Her oncologist, who’s mentioned many times in various posts, has written the Foreword for the book that this blog has now become. Here’s  a sample of what he and others have said: “No patient going through cancer just wants ‘support’. At best, they  would like the huge, scary roller-coaster called ‘treatment’ to stop and let them off. At least, they would like to meet someone else on the ride who can give words to the experience - and make some sense of it all. Jen McDonald is that person.” Author Information Jennifer (or Jen to her friends) is a Sydney Australia-based publisher, communication professional and writer. Born and raised in Brisbane she was schooled at Somerville House and attended the Queensland University of Technology, completing a Bachelor of Business Communication majoring in Journalism and Public Relations. For nearly 30 years she has run public relations firm Blackie McDonald with her journalist husband, Tony Blackie, consulting to local and international organisations such as Symantec Corporation, Lindemans Wines, Medtronic, RSM Australia, Telstra, Sprint Corporation, Qantas Airways and SBS. In 2008 she founded Epiphany Communication and launched a blog which, to date, includes posts on My Friend the Headache, a book that’s currently under construction; a travelogue on the Drawn to India art tour of Rajasthan and My Big Breast Adventure, a series of posts on her recent diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer, now available as a book. Jen’s first published work, Vegetarian Vampires and What We Can Learn From Them, also started off as a series of blogposts on Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. In 2014, Jen founded For Pity Sake a new type of publishing company that’s helping to recast how things are done in that industry by putting writers and readers first.

Have you ever read a self-improvement book and wondered how on earth the sage advice can be put to practical use? If yes, then Vegetarian Vampires and What We Can Learn From Them is the book for you. Each of the laws in Deepak Chopra's The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success is examined in a series of essays by Jennifer McDonald, a run-of-the-mill person, small business owner and working mother. She's certainly no guru but drawing from her own ordinary life experience Jennifer takes these laws out for a spin, and then imparts her sometimes surprising, usually off-centre yet always authentic conclusions.

Have you ever packed your bags for a holiday and wondered whether you’d forgotten anything? Passport, plane  ticket, hotel booking... But what if you also had to remember to find out whether you could use the shower in your hotel? Or how many steps  you had to climb to get to your room? Or whether you could get on and off the trains in the country you were  travelling to? These are only some of the challenges facing a traveller who happens to have mobility issues. When Maureen  Corrigan, a former medical doctor and health administrator, developed multiple sclerosis she began to make a series  of adaptations in her life in order to be able to continue doing the things she loves – chief among them, travel. With  her practical spirit and her inability to take ‘no’ for an answer, Maureen is an inspiration to us all, whether or not we  have mobility issues. Her latest adventure, to Norway and the Arctic, provides us with a fascinating insight into how  those adaptations play out in real life, as well as taking us on a journey to the starkly stunning vistas of the land of the  midnight sun.

Author Information For many years, Dr Maureen Corrigan was a medical practitioner who worked in a broad range of healthcare roles,  from general practitioner to CEO. She retired early as a result of developing multiple sclerosis (MS). Maureen is now  able to pursue her many other passions, including travel and writing, which has led her to say, ‘I sometimes think  getting MS was the best thing that happened to me!’

Arriving in post‐war Australia with nothing – neither language nor money – Anya and a group of people from Poland  formed strong friendships, sharing each other’s joys and disappointments as they adjusted to a new life. Anya taught  herself English and, following her passion for writing, began to draft stories about what everyday life was like for  migrants at the time. With a keen eye for detail and a sensitive ear for conversation, she has created a significant  testament to the resilience of this group of people.

Sylvia Breamer is a name now almost forgotten in film history, yet once she seemed destined to reach the top of the  Hollywood acting profession. In 1918 the American fan magazine Photoplay hailed her " one of the acting finds of  the year... Dusky, sensuous, sweet, a facile mirror to all of the voluptuous and most of the tender emotions..."  Beautiful, talented and dedicated to her craft, Sylvia starred in films for such distinguished actors as Cecil B. De Mille,  Maurice Tourneur, Sidney Franklin and Edwin Carewe. Who was Sylvia?, based on extensive original research, tells for the first time the enthralling life story of one of the  first Australian born Hollywoods stars.

Author Information Ralph Marsden is a Melbourne based writer with long professional experience in many aspects of the motion picture and television industries in Australia and overseas. As a writer he has contributed articles on Melbourne's theatre history to the Victoria Theatres Trust quarterly, On Stage, as well as to other publications. Who was Sylvia?, a biography of and Australian born stage and silent screen actress, Sylvia Breamer, is his first published book.

In this book, Prof. Dr. Doeke Post covers the many questions that arise towards the end of life. His purpose is to stimulate a discourse. Giving power of attorney to a trusted person in the spirit of the patient's decisions about the type of medical treatment, but also the termination of life, is an empowering and progressive stride both for health and humanity. Health - or rather, ill health - is a personal choice that requires a critical dialogue between the medical community, family members, religious leaders and of course, one's own concerns - all addressed within a legal framework. The current debate about euthanasia has gone on in the Netherlands for over 70 years and this book provides a clear and balanced guide to the questions surrounding the end of life. Doeke Post also provides suggestions on how to regulate timely power of attorneys. The book is an analysis and vision from fifty years of experience in healthcare practice and policy. Recommended for professionals and lay people who are struggling with end-of-life issues.

Cystic Fibrosis WA

Available Now In celebration of Menu Magazine turning 10 years old, publisher Scott Arnold-Eyers marks the milestone by putting together a second recipe book featuring recipes from some of the best cafes, bars, and restaurants that have featured in the magazine during this time. Masters of Menu Recipe Book 2 contains 51 recipes from well-known chefs and venues throughout W.A., as well as a few from families affected by Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a disease of the respiratory system but less is known about its effect on the other organs of the body. Whilst most people would recognise a food pyramid with vegetables and grains at the bottom and protein at the top, the pyramid is turned upside down for children with CF. Finding it difficult to absorb the goodness from food, children living with CF require a very high calorie diet and many will take up to 40 enzyme tablets a day to aid with digestion. High calorie meals can also be delicious for anyone wanting to indulge, within moderation of course. “In 2008 my wife gave birth to a beautiful girl named Jade. Shortly after her birth she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis and since then we have done what we can to help raise money for this cause. The first edition of Masters of Menu was a great success which is why we decided to do it again with new chefs, venues and recipes. All profits from this book once again will be donated to helping those with Cystic Fibrosis”. Scott Arnold-Eyers explains. Masters of Menu Recipe Book

A Darker Magic This Way Comes is the first tale in Merlin's Secrets, a series of five books. It is an epic and fast‐paced  story of love and war, knights and wizardry, angels and goddesses and the cosmic clash between Darkness and Light. It  re‐imagines the Arthurian legend, as narrated by Merlin. But who is this Merlin?   Set in the turbulent and brutal times of the fifth and sixth century, Merlin also writes of his love for a fairy from the  Otherworld, Emily Charlotte Hughes, a high school student from twenty first century Exeter in Devon. Throughout the  hundred years of the Merlin's Secrets series, Emily and Merlin swap the narrator role to give the reader both  contemporary and historical insights into the characters and the story.  But the young lovers will be separated by their  complex destinies and will only have a short amount of time together. The characters are engaging; Emily lives the life of a modern intelligent sixteen year old, yet she falls in love with  someone who has a squillion hits on Google, and whom she knows has been dead for fifteen hundred years. Merlin,  like an ancient prophet, meditates in caves where he has been known to talk with archangels. He has the ability to  become entangled with evil and not be tarnished by it.  In A Darker Magic This Way Comes, the young lovers engage with Moloch, the Prince of Lies, and Morgana, a  sorceress of immense power, when Emily, whom they call the Chosen One, is abducted. She has to find the answer to  why she is "chosen" in this exhilarating mix of adventure, myth, and magic where nothing is as it first seems.

Author Information Carmel Niland, a successful senior bureaucrat in NSW, was for over thirty years an outspoken civil servant involved in  leading agencies on women, racial equality, human rights, disability services and child protection. Surprisingly, parallel  to her life in the public sector was an inner world deeply rooted within English history and within that her particular  interest in the great Arthurian legends.  Carmel lives in Sydney, this is her first novel.

The platypus is a remarkable semi‐aquatic mammal found  only in Australia. Along with the echidna, it lays eggs like a  bird, walks like a reptile and has existed for millions of years. One of the world's strangest looking animals, it is so unusual  that when it was first examined by European naturalists  they thought it was made up of various animals sewn together  ‐ a hoax ‐ with a bill and webbed feet like a duck, a tail  like a  beaver and venomous spurs. People have always been  fascinated by these cute, beguiling little creatures. However,  many of their habits remain a mystery as they are largely  nocturnal and difficult to spot in the wild. This book will take you on a journey into the bizarre world of t he platypus and echidna ‐ the world's only egg‐laying  mammals ‐ and offers clues as to where in Australia you may go to see the se intriguing animals. Written and photographed by Emmy award‐winning wildlife  filmmakers, David Parer and Elizabeth Parer‐Cook, this book  incorporates up‐to‐date scientific knowledge about the  platypus with fresh new photographs of the animal's unique  behaviour. Featured are extremely rare images of baby  platypus interacting with their mother inside their nest deep  underground and mesmerising photographs of pairs courting  in the wild.

This is the story of an extraordinary job, in an extraordinary place. As one of the rangers, Michael Anderson was there  to eradicate the cats and control the rabbits. Feral cats, European rabbits, black rats and house mice were introduced  to Macquarie Island back in the sealing days.  Sub‐Antarctic Macquarie Island is a thin sliver of land cast adrift amidst the world's greatest ocean, 1500 kilometres  south east of Hobart, Tasmania. The plateau that stretches most of the length of the island slopes steeply to narrow  coastal terraces and storm‐lashed, rocky shores. The climate is vicious: an average 280 days of strong wind a year, 90  days at gale force. On most days some form of precipitation falls, whether rain, drizzle, hail or snow. In summer the  island is home to around four million penguins and tens of thousands of seals, as well as albatrosses and several  species of burrow‐nesting seabirds.   This book is both the personal response of a ranger working to eliminate feral cats in a most challenging environment, and a philosophical probing into this "feral dilemma". The book immerses the reader in a world of sub-zero temperatures, gales, stink and struggle contrasted with the glory of an aurora or the majesty of an albatross. The narrative is immediate, raw and colourful, yet sometimes also lyrical. It is a marriage of science and poetry, told by a man who has fallen in love with a wild island. - Janet Fenton, author of Win & Clyde

An atlas is more than just a series of maps. It is a comprehensive guide to the world in which we live, and provides insights into the innumerable unique features of our world - from politics to vegetation zones, from population distribution to heritage sites. Continuing a 52-year tradition as one of the leading producers of atlases and expertly edited knowledge about our planet, this stunning new edition of the Reader's Digest World Atlas is an indispensable and fascinating reference. In an ever-changing world, we all need a reliable resource to understand where news is happening, where the Earth's natural resources are found, where people live and work, what different landscapes look like and what forces shape our world. With this handsome atlas in your hands, you'll discover so many new things. And you'll do so faster, and more enjoyably, and with a level of complete trust that only Reader's Digest can provide.

Australia is an upbeat, quirky and sometimes humorous look at Australia and Australians - the land, its people and its wildlife - and what we value about our past that makes us proud now. Records, statistics, key dates, essential facts and achievements are presented in charts and lists, and supplemented by surprising information and intriguing stories about the people who shaped our nation - the famous and the infamous.

Dog Ear Cafe is a true-life adventure story about how one Aboriginal community beat the odds and defeated petrol sniffing. It tells of the Mt Theo Petrol Sniffing Program: a story of culture clash, of two lines of fire that meet in the desert night, of partnerships that cross Australia's racial divide. Woven throughout are humour, taboos, bush mechanics, hope and tragedy. In a colloquial and narrative manner, this book invites the reader to a deeper analysis of the assumptions behind white and black economics, indigenous alcoholism, welfare dependency and the failure of well intended policy and programs. Hidden in the subtext is a mud map for reproducing successful partnerships with indigenous Australians.

These are true stories of 12 brave women who sailed to the colonies in Australia's founding years. These tales of women triumphing over adversity document the early decades of a nation and are told with great panache by Susanna de Vries who has inherited the Irish gift for storytelling. Letters and portraits help bring these women to life and describe the dangers and deprivations of pioneering. Every Australian should know these women's stories and be proud of them.

The Mt Theo Program was founded in 1994, when half the teenage population of Yuendumu were sniffing. Eight years later no one sniffed, and ex-sniffers had become youth leaders and community workers. The elders of Mt Theo used their traditional bush knowledge to turn lives around.

In October 1980, struggling with small waves on the fledgling pro tour, Simon Anderson stuck three fins on a surfboard and changed surfing forever. Now, for the first time, on the 30th Anniversary of his historic breakthrough, Simon tells the entire remarkable story of how a kid from Collaroy graduated to Narrabeen and then took on the surfing world. Three decades after he took a dilemma to inspire a revolutionary solution, Simon is in high demand as a shaper to the world's best surfers and continues to influence the course of surfing history. From longboards to short, singles to twins to thrusters, Aussie titles to the pro tour, Simon's story mirrors the progression of modern surfing. With tales from surfing legends such as; Phil Jarratt, Derek Hynd, Andrew Kidman, Hugh McLeod, and Terry Fitzgerald along with photos by Hugh McLeod, Peter Crawford, Frank Pithers, Jeff Divine, Peter Simons, Mick McCormack, Dan Merkel

The story of Bells Beach is much more than a powerful narrative about the world's longest running board riding event, a contest that began as a rally half a century ago and became the Rip Curl Pro. It is the story of a collection of fearless pioneers who discovered this iconic bigwave beach and made it their own. It is the story of Australian surfing, from its amateur roots, through the rebellious 1960s and the country soul era of the early 1970s to the professionalism of today. It is the story of how a tiny cottage industry became a global empire. Most of all, it is the stories of the people who surf at Bells, especially those who make the annual Easter pilgrimage and compete for the most coveted trophy on the world tour.

Will Squirt ever understand Dad’s funny way of speaking? In his quest to  do so, Squirt may just discover the most powerful language of all — that of the heart.  Join a boy and his slang‐slinging dad in this fun, rhyming  journey through some of Australia’s most popular idioms. — best taken with a grain of salt!

Author Information Josette was raised on a farm in Gunnedah, NSW, where she kept company with dogs, cows, and her five older siblings — not necessarily in that order. Owing to this earthy upbringing, she quickly became fluent in two languages: English and ‘Australian’.

260

It wasn’t until much later, when Josette grew up to become an English language teacher, that she began to contemplate just how tricky all our slang words and idioms can be for those learning English, including young Aussie kids! Cue lightbulb moment: why not create a rhyming picture book that deals with just that! Everything but the Kitchen Sink materialised. Aside from Australia, Josette has taught in the UK and France. Word games and punning around make her very happy. These days she lives both in Newcastle and the hope that she will one day beat her brother at a game of Scrabble.

Tom Brown just won’t sit down. He can run, play, and jump up and down, but sitting is a whole other issue.

Author Information Nicole L Steevens has worked in the field of Special Education for over a decade and is a lifelong lover of children’s literature. She has a Masters in Special Education and a Bachelor of Primary Education from the University of Sydney. Nicole has loved working with children in Australia and the United Kingdom and last year specialized in teaching literacy to Aboriginal (First Nation) children in rural British Columbia, Canada. Nicole was inspired to write the Tom Brown, Sit Down series to introduce young children (ages 3-7) to a character who is cheeky and out-of-the-ordinary. She has always admired and appreciated the way that children, both with and without special needs, fall in love with picture books and their characters. Later this year Nicole will be running a Crowdfunding Campaign on Kickstarter to raise awareness of and pre-sell her first picture book, Tom Brown, Sit Down.

Illustrator Information Olivia recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School. Her style is influenced by the impressionist art movement as well as illustrators Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne and Ludwig Bemelmans. She is a perpetual daydreamer with a nostalgic love for the past.

Elvira, a wedge‐tailed eagle from the city, forms an unlikely friendship with a country mouse with attitude named Pookie. Together they journey to the Pilliga Forest in search of Pookie’s family, and Elvira goes in search of something equally hard to find: the secret  of happiness. Author Information Originally from Western Sydney, it was at a mature age that Pat Clarke decided to embark on a second career as a writer. She had always loved stories, and as a child had enjoyed the works of Enid Blyton, as well as telling a few originals of her own. Pat has since published four books. Howie the Yowie follows her previous titles A One-Eyed Chook Called Sheila, The Magic Forest of Goonoo and The Flying Lesson. Now living in Dubbo, Pat finds inspiration in the beautiful Goonoo State Forest, near where her family have a property called ‘Spring Creek’. She hopes her writing will create a love and respect for the Australian wildlife and flora. Illustrator Information Graeme Compton is an award-winning portrait, wildlife and fantasy artist whose first love is illustration and cartoons. The 2013 Grand Champion of the Gunnedah Art and Pottery Exhibition, Graeme has been selected as a finalist two years running in the Mortimer Art Prize, and has numerous high commendations for his work. His collaboration with Pat Clarke began in 2012 with the A One-Eyed Chook Called Sheila project. The 2013 publication of this book is a feather in their caps. It is a happy and productive partnership, with two more books in the wings, and now this latest instalment. Graeme is also a piano teacher and loving husband to Donna.

She was Runner Up in the Business Women of the Year sponsored by The Sydney Business Review. Jay and Diana’s company has become one of Australia’s largest residential cleaning businesses using only Australian Made environmentally friendly cleaning products.

On a trip with her dolphin friends up the east coast of Australia, Marilla learns of the mystery of Esmeralda Cove.  Convinced it involves the fate of her lost family, she is determined to solve it. Marilla and Jerry embark on a dangerous  adventure.

Andrew is leaving behind his childhood on the big and dusty outback property in western NSW, as he and his family  move inland to a more settled hills area of the Warrumbungle Mountains. There is the strange and lonely man next door – a recluse around whom much gossip grows; there are everyday farm  chores and school work to be done, and a steady trickle of visitors coming to spend time with the family. The biggest misadventure of all is wrought by nature itself as Andrew becomes lost in the rugged back country, amid a  destructive bush fire. A charming children’s novel about a boy on the cusp of growing up, leaving his isolated  childhood behind him, and finding his place in the wider community.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me... a seahorse on a sea star." Be enchanted by Kim Michelle Toft's lyrical adaptation of a Christmas carol classic. Combined with her stunning hand-painted silk illustrations of marine life, this book captures the magic of both Christmas and the underwater world. The book builds to a spectacular 'fold-out' finish. Features: - Brightly coloured silk illustrations. - Song building to a spectacular fold down ending. - Additional environmental information about each sea creature in the back of the book. - Bonus Christmas poster for the wall and a CD. - 3-track CD featuring the soulful voice of Lisa Hunt.

This hilarious, original and thoroughly modern tale of Santa Claus will delight both children and adults. Already a bestseller in France, the book tells the story of Santa, who finds he has forgotten to clean his suit ahead of his Christmas delivery round - and finds the washing machine is broken! His dog Bobo (a canny canine who reminds us of Wallace's resourceful companion, Gromit) comes to the rescue. Armed with notes from a sewing program he's seen on TV, he starts making a new suit - out of the curtains! Will the suit be ready in time for Christmas? Will Santa learn his lesson and fix the washing machine in time for next Christmas? Young readers will have lots of fun finding out, in this playful comic-style book that is easy to read and packs a delightful punchline.
