            In 2011, Australian journalist Anthony Ham embarked on a journey into the world of lions. Haunted by the idea that they might disappear from the planet in our lifetime, he ventured deep into Sub-Saharan wilderness, seeking answers from conservation researchers, zoologists, local ...activists, and traditional peoples alike as to why lions are disappearing and what can be done to save them from extinction. In The Last Lions, Anthony brings readers with him on his quest, along the way revealing the latest extraordinary science surrounding the earth's dwindling lion populations and their surprising relationship to mankind. Each chapter is part gripping campfire story, part deeply researched investigation of lion habitats, and a jumping off point to explore larger mysteries of the natural world. Through Anthony's vivid storytelling - which weaves together natural history, ancient lore, and multidisciplinary science - we glimpse a world where human populations are growing and wild lands are shrinking; where lions and indigenous peoples fight not for reign of the land but for their very existence. By the book's end, readers will be enlightened, entertained, and engaged with the fate of these embattled creatures and the surprising ways they might be saved.

            In the bestselling tradition of Marley & Me, the moving story of a dog, his human, and the friendship that saved both of their lives - and inspired countless others. When Ben Moon moved to Oregon, he hadn't planned on getting a dog. But when he met the soulful gaze of a husky-pit... bull cross pup in a rescue shelter, Ben instantly felt a connection, and his friendship with the extraordinary Denali was born. The two friends set out on the road together, on an adventure that would take them across the American west and through some of the best years of their lives. When Ben was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at age 29, Denali never once left his side until the two adventurers were back out surfing and climbing crags. It was only a short time later that Denali was struck by the same disease, and Ben had the chance to return the favor. With the help of a couple of filmmaker friends, Ben made a short film as a tribute to the dog he admits helped form him into an adult. It was a labour of love that struck a chord worldwide, viewed by more than 15 million people, and continues to touch new audiences. Denali is the story of a powerful friendship that shaped Ben and Denali's lives - and inspired countless others - showing the power of the strength and love that we give and receive when we have our friends by our side.

            This is award-winning chef James Viles' photographic journal of his road trip from Tassie to the Top End, from Flinders Island in the Tasman Sea to the Gulf of Carpentaria. His focus is real food, where it comes from, how it's grown, tended and harvested and how it sometimes flou...rishes in the most hostile and breathtakingly beautiful parts of Australia. James describes the people he meets along the road and the conversations he has with foragers, food producers, fishermen, tribal elders, local farmers, all of whom are knowledgeable and passionate about Australia and Australian ingredients. James also discovers that sleeping in a swag under the stars reminds him about what matters and reconnects him to his creative self. With exquisite imagery from Adam Gibson, this is an extraordinary portrait of a country.

            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.

            Two antique cars, a few old mates and the journey of a lifetime. Take a couple of vintage cars and their owners' determination to drive them on a pilgrimage from Australia to Finland and you have a fascinating story told through photos and the distillation of blogs and diary entr...ies by some foolhardy, adventurous blokes. Starting out from Thailand, their travels took them through Laos, China, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Russia and Finland - a six-month journey spread over two legs in successive years. Told in an engaging, self-deprecating and personal style, the reader enters the journey, every step of the way: following the ancient Silk Road route into the mountains of south-west and western China and the Tibetan Plateau where Muslim and Buddhist communities have lived for centuries, through the '-stans', and beyond. Many an adventure, impossibly sticky situations, near misses and regular mechanical breakdowns were inevitably resolved with the support and civility towards this motley group of travellers in their ancient cars, by locals renowned for their hospitality. Nothing was ever too much trouble. They had no sponsor, no professional photographer or filmmaker, no journalist to publish the story, no 'name' to add fame and celebrity, no contract in the pocket for a coffee table book with quality photos and deep, or informed historical and cultural insights, and no travelling mechanical workshop. There was just a determination to get each of these old cars to Helsinki in one piece and smell the roses along the way. A must-read for men (and women) who dream ...
