            One morning on the outskirts of Damascus, two starving friends are walking through their desolate city and come across a familiar street that has been turned to rubble, concrete bridges towering above them like tombs and houses turned inside out. Aeham turns to the only comfort h...e has left and pushes his piano into the street to play a song of hope to his fellow Syrians. It is a song that will reach far beyond the streets of his home and carry consequences he could never have dreamed of. This tender and poetic account of Aeham's experiences, from losing his city, friends and family to leaving his country and finding safety, will move readers with its raw and candid emotion. This is a gripping portrait of a man's search for solace and of a country that has been fiercely torn apart.

            More Great Australian Outback Police Stories
             

            More Great Australian Outback Police Stories (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Marsh, Bill

            From some of the biggest beats in the world came these unforgettable tales of adventure and misadventure, drama and mayhem, larrikinism and laughter. After there'd been a robbery in a block of Wiluna retirement units, two police officers arrive to begin their investigations. They... knock on the front door of the first unit in the block. An old lady answers. 'Lady,' says one of the police officers, 'where were you between 5 and 6?' 'I'm not exactly sure officer,' replies the old lady, 'but I was most probably in kindergarten.' Australia's outback police have seen it all: natural disasters, incredible acts of selflessness, unspeakable crimes and daring rescues, to name just a few. And they've met some unforgettable characters along the way. This memorable and eye-opening collection of real-life accounts from cops on the frontline in the heart of Australia is by turns inspiring, poignant, heartbreaking and hilarious. Bill 'Swampy' Marsh is an award-winning writer and performer of stories, songs and plays. He spent most of his youth in rural south-western NSW and now lives in Adelaide. Swampy is one of ABC Books' bestselling authors of Australian stories; this is his twentieth book.

            Slow Travel is a beautifully designed and practical compendium of places, activities, tours and experiences that will inspire you to get on the road in your own time and on your own terms. It can be challenging to travel in the modern world without falling for the temptations of ...fast planes, cheap airlines, last-minute tickets, quick-fix travel apps and overzealous tour operators. To actually take a back seat, and allow yourself time to embrace the ebb and flow of travel, requires a more thoughtful and philosophical way of journeying. This book explores slow travel as a physical or philosophical endeavour, taking readers off the beaten track and through nature, and unveils journeys that will nurture talent and ignite the inner-self. You could decide to cruise slow-mo down Egypt's Nile on a 19th-century steam ship, visit ancient dzongs and temples in Bhutan or learn the art of sourdough baking in Venice. There are features on the world's best wellness escapes, digital-detox destinations and 'slo-tels' (hotels where long minimum stays and remote locations ensure full immersion). Along with compelling information, interviews and imagery, you'll find a how-to guide of helpful tips, from planning for slow travel to what music to listen to in the slow zone. In this fast-paced world, it's worth adjusting your vacation time to a pace we can all strive to keep up with.
