            A celebration of Australia's inspiring rural communities in words and pictures Over the five years it has been appearing on our screens, Back Roads has taken us across Australia, through deserts, along coasts, up mountains and over plains. It has shown us the rugged landscapes, t...he resilient communities and the extraordinary individuals who populate the areas outside the big cities. In this book, we re-meet in vivid colour some of our favourite people and places. Full of glorious photos that capture the spirit, purpose, difficulties and humour of outback life, this book is a tribute to the surprising characters, the rarely told stories and the sometimes beautiful, sometimes strange places that exist along the back roads of our extraordinary country.

            "The practice of t moko, and the wearing of moko, was considered an art form of a bygone day for the most part of the twentieth century, as casualty of Aotearoa New Zealand's colonial past. However, this unique Pacific art is enjoying a revival. Its embers fanned back to life by ...modern practitioners in the 1980s, it has once again become a powerful form of Mori cultural expression, identity and unity. In a first for Australia, 'Mori markings: t moko' looks at not only the history of this living, breathing art of our region but also shares stories of today's proud moko wearers and practitioners"--Foreword.

            'McAllister's triumphant story.' Benjamin Law 'A ripping memoir.' Jane Turner From the backblocks of Perth to international stardom, this is a story of courage to fight against the odds for your passion and succeed. David McAllister has always belonged onstage. As the middle chil...d in a Catholic family who knew nothing about dance, he watched himself twirl in the reflective glass of the TV and dreamed about becoming the next Rudolf Nureyev. As a little boy taking ballet lessons, he was mercilessly bullied. As a young man joining the ranks of The Australian Ballet, he worried that he would never play the prince because he lacked the height and lean limbs of a classical dancer. Every time he heard 'no', he simply did what he loved - danced. Sure enough, curtains rose for the unlikely prince: he represented Australia on the world stage; he became a principal dancer and performed his dream roles; he fell in love, onstage and off; and he enjoyed a twenty-year tenure as artistic director of The Australian Ballet, transforming it into one of the top flagship dance companies in the world. Fifty years since he stepped into his first ballet class, McAllister reflects on his dance journey, his relationships, embracing his sexuality, and the combination of talent, timing and sheer perseverance that gave rise to his transformative career. Includes 16 pages of colour photos from McAllister's life and career.

            Living Outside: Reviving the Australian Modernist Garden

            The Australian garden was born mid-century, a time of postwar confidence and growing national identity. Gardens became outdoor rooms for recreation and healthy living - removing the barriers between inside and out - and bold designs celebrated native Australian plants. The mid-ce...ntury modern aesthetic has seen a revival in recent years, with contemporary garden designers reinterpreting the optimism, innovation and independence of that era. The gardens in Living Outside speak to an Australia that draws on the confidence of the last century while pushing the boundaries of experimentation, all to rise to the environmental and social challenges of today. The featured projects embrace their unique surrounding landscapes, from coastal cliffs and expansive grassland to tropical forest and even urban neighbourhoods. They also reflect a return to modernism - not just the look and feel, but also the functionality and values of invention, conservation, wellbeing. These gardens are more than just ornamental backdrops: they provide shade for neighbourhoods, food for pollinating insects, habitat for wildlife, hubs for both social interaction and moments of respite. They are platforms for research into resilient futures, experiments in sustainability and places for families to grow. They have been designed in response to their contexts and exemplify the singular and joyous spaces that can result from a deep appreciation of place.

            Humanity has reached a pivotal moment in time. With extinction looming over one million species of plants and animals, the United Nations has declared that nature is in more trouble now than at any time in human history. In light of increasing natural disasters, polluted environm...ents and rising sea levels, the present geological era has been described as the age of Anthropocene; the effect of humanity's now indelible, and irreversible, intersection with nature. In this important and timely book, these seminal questions of our time are addressed by twelve of the world's most influential contemporary photographers: Joel Sartore, Paul Nicklen, Ami Vitale, Brent Stirton, Frans Lanting, Brian Skerry, Tim Laman, Cristina Mittermeier, J Henry Fair, Richard John Seymour, George Steinmetz and Steve Winter. With compassion, insight and in compelling detail they share their extraordinary images and the stories behind them, and seek to understand what really matters now for humanity and the planet. At once shocking, illuminating and inspiring, Human Nature: Planet Earth in Our Time asks: 'What do we have?', 'What do we stand to lose?' and 'What must we change?', or is the Anthropocene Age to be humanity's last?
