            Who takes their new bride into the middle of nowhere, to go hunting on their honeymoon? Join John Eason and his family and friends as they recall wild experiences from 50 years of hunting in the New Zealand bush. Stories from Te Urewera, Whirinaki, Kaimanawas, the East Coast, W...hanganui, Raukumaras, Mt Aspiring, the West Coast, Fiordland and Stewart Island. Tales of hunting sambar, sika, red, whitetail, tahr, chamois, pigs and trapping possums - you name it, you'll read about it. Be enthralled by stories of swollen rivers, flooded huts, flying in doorless helicopters, inappropriate actions out of moving vehicles, medivacs, search and rescues, rafting, jetboating, hunting antics, the animals that got away and the trophy heads so sought after. This is hunting how it used to be, no GPS or fancy smartphones. Just old-fashioned maps and a good amount of iron in your nose. An Outdoor Obsession is not just a book of stories about hunting, it's also about the firm friendships formed and the spirit of camaraderie only experienced when you 'go bush'.

            Surf For Your Life (EPUB ebook – Main)

            By Fanning, Mick; Baker, Tim

            An inspirational tale of overcoming the odds to become world champ Mick Fanning might only be 28 but he already knows how a lot of things feel that most of us never will. How does it feel to lose a brother? Win a world title? Rip your hamstring muscle clean off the bone? Weave th...rough a zippering Superbank barrel for 20 or 30 seconds or paddle over the ledge at places like Pipeline and Teahupo? Have scoliosis so bad you can't get off the floor? Address the NSW state of origin team before a match, bowl to Matty Hayden and have Dave Warner belt you for consecutive sixes? Walk into the bar of a Brasilian hotel dressed only in a bikini to make your mates laugh, only to find your mates have left, and there is only a puzzled bartender staring blankly at you? You'll notice that not all these experiences fall neatly on one side of the ledger of good or bad. Mick's journey so far has definitely been a mixed bag, but it is the extremes of that journey that make him so interesting, and his readiness to learn from each experience and use it as fuel to drive him on that might provide lessons for the rest of us. Mick's only young but he already exudes a quiet wisdom beyond his years, and now he's ready to share it with anyone wanting to further their surfing, whether competitively or for sheer pleasure. Mick tells his life story candidly - in turns funny, sensitive, thoughtful, self-depricating - while providing intimate insights into the personal lessons gained along the way - with practical tips on surfing technique, fitness, nutrition, board design, travel, competitive strategies and mental clarity. Mick has overcome personal tragedy and career-threatening injury on his way to claiming the 2007 world surfing title. Universally acknowledged as the most focussed and driven competitive surfer of his era, Mick's approach to surfing, sports psychology, life and relationships, makes fascinating reading. The essential principles of perseverance, hard work, and overcoming obstacles in

            The Whole of My World (EPUB ebook)

            By Hayes, Nicole

            An unputdownable novel for anyone who's ever loved or lost, drawn a line between then and now, or kept a secret that wouldn't stay hidden . . . 'Today I am free. No guilt for who's missing, what's been left behind. My face aches from smiling in the wind and my voice rasps from al...l the screaming, and I know that it's been forever since I've felt so completely alive.' Desperate to escape her grieving father and harbouring her own terrible secret, Shelley disappears into the intoxicating world of AFL. Joining a motley crew of footy tragics - and, best of all, making friends with one of the star players - Shelley finds somewhere to belong. Finally she's winning. So why don't her friends get it? Josh, who she's known all her life, but who she can barely look at anymore because of the memories of that fateful day. Tara, whose cold silences Shelley can't understand. Everyone thinks there's something more going on between Shelley and Mick. But there isn't - is there? When the whole of your world is football, sometimes life gets lost between goals.
