              The Cherry Picker's Daughter

              This second edition of The Cherry Picker's Daughter is an exquisite portrait of growing up Aboriginal on the fringes of outback towns in NSW in the mid-twentieth century. Its an important book for school libraries and classrooms, with profound insights into the extraordinary stre...ngth, resilience and ingenuity of Aboriginal families to overcome extreme poverty, persecution, racism and cultural genocide. The strength of family ties in Aboriginal communities is clearly evident when three-month-old Kerry and her brother lost both parents. Her father, Kevin Gilbert - later to become a famous activist and artist - killed their mother and was jailed for many years. Her father's sister, whom she always called 'Mummy', raised Kerry and her brother, along with her own children and others within the extended family. The book is a tribute to this truly remarkable woman, who not only loved them selflessly and worked tirelessly to support them, but also managed to keep them from being taken/'stolen' by the 'Welfare'. Told in the child's voice and in the vernacular of her Mob, activist, artist, poet and author, Aunty Kerry, tells her story of love and loss, of dispossession and repeated dislocation growing up in corrugated tin huts, tents and run-down train carriages, of helping her family earn 'an honest living' through fruit picking, and the impact of life as an Aboriginal state ward living under the terror of Protection Laws. 'A wonderful yarn by an Aboriginal Elder about a bygone way of life.' - Melissa Lucashenko, author of Miles Franklin Award-winning Too Much Lip 'Australia has waited too long to read this book of courage and truth. It heralds a timely change in our thinking of Aboriginal activism.' - Jeanine Leane, Wiradjuri writer and academic 'Thank you, Kerry, for sharing your story - so much pain and hurt, but such life-affirming strength and love, too.' - Kate Grenville, author

              Step back to a time where New Zealand is vast, exotic and undiscovered. The romance of becoming a ruler, possibly even a king in this unclaimed land seems easily achievable. At least this is what Baron Charles de Thierry must have felt when he named himself Sovereign Chief of New... Zealand. The story of this french adventurer is also the story of a young New Zealand and his adventures are retold as though the author herself witnessed it. Robin Hyde's clever merging of historic events and fictional what ifs creates a masterpiece. Hyde tells the tale well and with her usual lyrical and colourful style. A historical must-read.

              The Korean Kid is the story of Jim Kichenside and the Australian pilots who took to the skies in the 'forgotten war' on the Korean peninsula. Within a week of the North Korean invasion of the South on June 25, 1950, No.77 Fighter Squadron RAAF were in the air: the first United Na...tions air unit committed to the defence of the overrun South. Of the 340 Australians who perished in Korea, 41 were from 77 Squadron. In 1952, Jim Kichenside was the youngest pilot in 77 Squadron, at just 21 years of age. He entered the Korean theatre with just 8 hours of training on his Meteor jet. Dubbed 'The Korean Kid', Jim's is a story of youth and resilience, of luck and loss, of young men thrust into a war against impossible odds - the first war of the jet age.
