              The follow-up to the ABIA award-winning, international bestselling sensation Penguin Bloom The heart-warming Australian story Penguin Bloom - the miraculous tale of a baby magpie that helped save a young mother and her family - is a homegrown and international bestseller; soon to... be a major Hollywood movie, starring Naomi Watts and Andrew Lincoln. Sam's personal message at the end of the book has resonated powerfully with readers - where, pulling no punches, she writes about what it is really like to face life in a wheelchair. In Sam Bloom, Sam tells her own story for the first time - how a shy but determined Australian girl became a nurse and travelled across Africa. How she fell in love with a like-minded free spirit, raised three boys and built a life together on Sydney's Northern Beaches. And then, in a single horrific moment, how everything changed. Sam's journey back from the edge of death and the depths of despair is so much more than an account of overcoming adversity. Sam's captivating true story - written by close friend, New York Times bestselling author Bradley Trevor Greive, and featuring extraordinary photographs taken by Sam's husband, Cameron Bloom - is humbling, heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure. A triumph of raw emotion and incredible beauty, Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong is a truly unforgettable book. Penguin Bloom is soon to be a major motion picture starring Naomi Watts, Andrew Lincoln, Jacki Weaver and Rachel House. PRAISE FOR PENGUIN BLOOM: 'A unique and remarkable insight into a family dealing with tragedy and finding their way through it with love, courage and hope' - Naomi Watts 'a coffee-table book that will make hearts soar' - Daily Telegraph

              Lust, science, adventure - Joseph Banks and his voyages of discovery Explorer, naturalist and president of Britain's Royal Society, Sir Joseph Banks was a larger-than-life character best known for his promotion of science. In 1768 Banks joined Captain James Cook's expedition to t...he South Pacific. The 30,000 specimens he brought back generated enormous interest, as did the sometimes racy written account of the journey, which chronicled his frequent amorous exploits. Banks' passion for the new and unusual flora of Australia led him to recommend Botany Bay to parliament as an excellent place for a penal settlement, despite the fact the soil was poor and there was no fresh running water, but he later became the foremost expert on everything Australian. By award-winning bestselling writer Grantlee Kieza, Banks is a rich and rollicking biography of one of Britain's most colourful and successful scientists.

              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.

              Focusing on two childhood friends in Newcastle, this powerful and heartbreaking story exposes how the cover-up of child abuse in the Catholic Church in Australia extended from parish priests to every echelon of the organisation, all the way to the Pope. Glen Walsh and Steven Alwa...rd were childhood friends in their tight-knit working class community in Shortland, on the outskirts of Newcastle. Both proud altar boys at the local Catholic church, they went on to attend the city's Catholic boys' highs schools: Glen to Marist Brothers and Steven to St Pius X. Both did well - Steven became a journalist; and Glen a priest. But when Glen discovered another priest was sexually abusing boys, he reported the offending to the police, breaking Canon Law and his vows to the Catholic 'brotherhood' in the process. That decision eventually led to his death, just weeks before a key trial against the highest cleric to ever be charged with covering up child abuse. Two months later Glen's childhood friend Steven was also dead, only days before he was to marry the love of his life. So how were the deaths of both men linked to the deaths of at least 60 men in the blighted Maitland-Newcastle Catholic diocese? By five-time Walkley award-winning investigative reporter Suzanne Smith, The Altar Boys is the powerful expose of how the cover-up of child abuse in the Catholic Church in Australia extended from parish priests to every echelon of the organisation, all the way to the Pope. Focusing on two childhood friends who eventually took their own lives, this gripping and explosive story is backed by secret documents, diary notes and witness accounts, and details a deliberate church strategy using psychological warfare against witnesses in key trials involving paedophile priests.

              Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The story of a sporting icon (Paperback)

              The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges. One evening in May 1945, a small group of Sydney sailing enthusiasts decided that their planned post-Christmas cruise south to Hobart would be more enjoyable if they made it a race. And ...so began the story of a contest that quickly became ranked among the world's premier offshore racing events - a race that demands both immense physical and mental endurance of the individual sailor along with the coordinated effort of a close-knit team. It's a challenge where one mistake can lead to defeat, while success can deliver national and international acclaim. In its 75th year, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has become an icon of Australia's summer sport, ranking in public interest with such national events as the Melbourne Cup, the Australian Open tennis and the Boxing Day cricket test. No regular annual yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage or public interest as does the start on Sydney Harbour. The 628-nautical mile course is often described as the most grueling long ocean race in the world. From the spectacular start in Sydney Harbour, the fleet sails through the Heads, down the south-east coast of mainland Australia, across the notoriously tempestuous Bass Strait, then down the east coast of Tasmania. At Tasman Island the fleet turns right into Storm Bay for the final sail up the Derwent River. The race is an around-the-clock challenge from the harbour to Hobart, and the whims of the winds, waves, tides and currents means that, for each crew, nothing is certain until the finish line is crossed. The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges, an event where men and women from all walks of life are inspired and challenged by the beauty and power of nature.
