BOOK 1
Wings of ice: the mystery of the Polar Air Race by Jeff Maynard
4 Volumes

With the rise of aviation at the beginning of the twentieth century, daring men
were finally able to explore the Earth's final frontiers - the Arctic and Antarctic
wildernesses. Hoping to resurrect his fading career, the legendary Norwegian
explorer Roald Amundsen desperately wanted to fly over the North Pole.
American naval commander Richard Byrd was determined to beat Amundsen
to the prize. An Australian adventurer, George Hubert Wilkins, also joined the
competition, initiating a rivalry with Byrd that would last years and take them
to the ends of the Earth. The world watched in fascination as the air race to
the North Pole escalated, until in May 1926 Byrd claimed to have reached it in
his Fokker Trimotor, the Josephine Ford. But did he really succeed? In 1928,
while Amundsen was involved in the bitter dispute that would cost him his life,
Byrd announced he would fly to the South Pole. Wilkins was hired by
newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst to beat him. The competitors
unloaded their planes on opposite sides of Antarctica and prepared for the
last great race in polar history.

Dark country by Bronwyn Parry

They've considered him a murderer for eighteen years, so no one in Dungirri
is surprised when 'Gil' Gillespie returns and a woman's body is found in his
car. Wearied by too many deaths and doubting her own skills, local police
sergeant Kris Mathews isn't sure whether Gil is a decent man wronged by life,
or a hardened criminal she should lock up. But she does know he's not guilty
of this murder, because she is his alibi. Gil isn't used to feeling anything for
anyone. But there's a teenager here who has his eyes - a daughter he never
knew existed. And the sergeant's fiery tenacity stirs his blood. He can't
acknowledge either. He's made too many enemies in the Sydney Mafia and
amongst corrupt cops. Kris's alibi might have saved him from a murder charge
but her dedication to finding the truth has made her a target. Gil is surrounded
by wilderness, but there's no place to hide, because his enemies have most of
the town on their side, and they know that the one thing most punishing would
be harming the few people he cares about.

Maralinga by Judy Nunn

During the darkest days of the Cold War, in the remote wilderness of a South
Australian desert, the future of an infant nation is being decided... without its
people's knowledge. A British airbase in the middle of nowhere; an atomic
weapons testing ground; an army of raw youth led by powerful, ambitious men
- a cocktail for disaster. Such is Maralinga in the spring of 1956. This is the
story of British Lieutenant Daniel Gardiner, who accepts a twelve-month
posting to the wilds of South Australia on a promise of rapid promotion; Harold
Dartleigh, Deputy Director of MI-6 and his undercover operative Gideon
Melbray; Australian Army Colonel Nick Stratton and the enigmatic Petraeus
Mitchell, bushman and anthropologist. They all find themselves in a violent
and unforgiving landscape, infected with the unique madness and excitement
that only nuclear testing creates. It is also a story of love; a love so strong that
it draws the adventurous young English journalist Elizabeth Hoffmann halfway
around the world in search of the truth. And Maralinga is a story of heartbreak;
heartbreak brought to the innocent First Australians who had walked their land
unhindered for 40,000 years. Maralinga...a desolate place where history
demands an emerging nation choose between hell and reason.

What's next for the conservative side of politics? Where are new battlelines to

offers a frank analysis of the way forward for the Liberal Party. Here he draws
lessons from the dying days of the Howard Government, and gives his views
on his contemporaries, including Kevin Rudd, Peter Costello, Julia Gillard and
Malcolm Turnbull. In Battlelines, Abbott looks at the values and instincts that
drive the Liberal Party and proposes policy that the party should adopt. He
describes the truth about politicians' lives; his 'days from hell'; insider
moments from the halls of power; and how a would-be priest believed he had
fathered an unknown son. Battlelines outlines a state of play for the Liberal
Party, cementing Tony Abbott's reputation as one of the Liberal Party's most
interesting thinkers and fearless advocates.

Trouble : evolution of a radical : selected writings 1970-2010 by Kate
Jennings
5 Volumes

In 1970 Kate Jennings, twenty-one, stunned a Sydney anti-war rally with a
pull-no-punches speech that put 'women's lib' on the map. Brave,
impassioned and searing, the speech set the tone for the idiosyncratic career
that was to follow. A few years later, she was on her way to New York, where
she would make her name as a writer and enjoy a ringside seat at some of
the most confronting events of our time. With a polemical anger tempered by
a keen sense of the absurd and a fiercely independent streak, she writes
incisively about politics, morality, finance, feminism and the writing life. She
describes America with the keen eye of an outsider and looks back at
Australia with an expatriate's frankness.Trouble is both an unconventional
autobiography and a record of remarkable times. From the protest
movements of the 1970s, via Wall Street's heyday and dramatic collapse, to
the historic election of Barack Obama, Jennings captures the shifts - seismic
and subtle, personal and political - that brought us to where we are now. After
four decades, Kate Jennings' work is as exhilarating and impossible to
categorise - shocking with the shock of recognition - as the day it was written.

Sir Charles Kingsford Smith is one of Australia's most loved heroes. In an
action-packed life, the indomitable 'Smithy' went from fighting as a soldier
among the carnage of Gallipoli and the Western Front, to taking to the skies
against the likes of the Red Baron - for which he won the Military Cross for
gallantry - before becoming the greatest peacetime aviator of his generation.
Along with Charles Ulm, he was the first man to conquer the Pacific by air, the
first to fly across the Tasman Sea, the fastest man to fly from England to
Australia, and the first pilot to circumnavigate the globe by crossing the
equator. Peter FitzSimons also tells the story of several breakthroughs, some
of which were discovered in Australia, which laid the foundation for the Wright
brothers' success in 1903; the first flight across the Channel in 1908;
Germany's Red Baron terrorising the Allies in 1917-18, before being shot

Darwin. There are dazzling pieces on commerce and cricket, extinction and
translation, perfume and politics. There are journeys through landscapes
scorched and recovering, and reflections on turning points both public and
deeply personal. For Robyn Davidson, the best essays 'put oneself and the
world to the test.' Here is a collection of pieces that do just that - and also
entertain, inspire and provoke. Contributors include: David Sedaris, Tim
Flannery, Tim Winton, Annabel Crabb, Chloe Hooper, David Marr, Drusilla
Modjeska, JM Coetzee, Noel Pearson, Robert Dessaix and more.

a free download of the newest Britney Spears MP3 - he leads off with a
mutinous talk given at Microsoft on digital rights management, insisting that
they stop treating their customers as criminals. Readers will discover how
America chose Happy Meal toys over copyright, why Facebook is taking a

HISTORY

BOOK 72
The Australian light horse by Roland Perry
7 Volumes

The Australian Light Horse was a unique force, first raised during the Boer
War, and then reformed for World War I. Most of the men were from the
outback, had a special bond with their horses (which were all brought from
Australia) - and they knew how to survive and fight in the desert. The greatest
part of the Allied victory over the Turks was theirs. Colonel Lawrence had a
strategy for actually defeating the Turks - as opposed to the British High
Command's acceptance of the status quo. What Lawrence needed was a
mobile, elite force to join his own troops - and in the Light Horse he had them.
Battle-hardened by Gallipoli and the repulse of the Turkish invasion of Egypt,
the Australians were ready. Under their brilliant commander, Sir Harry
Chauvel they won great victories in the Sinai, Palestine and Syria -
culminating in the last great cavalry charge in our military history, and the
taking of Beersheba in 1917. Every Australian has heard of the Light Horse -
but practically none have read their story.

Beneath Hill 60 by Will Davies

We all remember images from WWI of massive artillery barrages and soldiers
crossing shattered landscapes towards certain slaughter. Beneath these
killing fields of the Western Front, another war was taking place, a deadly
game 30 metres down, played between thousands of troops. These were not
infantrymen - but miners. Their mutual goal was to tunnel beneath 'no man's
land', under the opposing lines and destroy the German enemy from below.
Unfortunately, the Germans had the same idea and were digging in from the
other side. Over 4585 Australian miners took part in this secret subterranean
war, fighting under stress and conditions that terrified even the most hardened
infantryman on the surface.

The other Anzacs : nurses at war, 1914-1918 by Peter Rees
5 Volumes

By the end of The Great War, forty-five Australian and New Zealand nurses
had died on overseas service and over two hundred had been decorated.
These were women who left for war on an adventure, but were soon
confronted with remarkable challenges for which their civilian lives could
never have prepared them. They were there for the horrors of Gallipoli and
they were there for the savagery the Western Front. Within twelve hours of
the slaughter at Anzac Cove they had over 500 horrifically injured patients to
tend on one crammed hospital ship, and scores of deaths on each of the
harrowing days that followed. Every night was a nightmare. Their strength and
humanity were remarkable. Using diaries and letters, Peter Rees takes us into
the hospital camps, and the wards and the tent surgeries on the edge of some
of the most horrific battlefronts of human history. But he also allows the
friendships and loves of these courageous and compassionate women to
enrich their experiences, and ours. This is a very human story from a different
era, when women had not long begun their quest for equality and won the
vote. They were on the frontline of social change as well as war, and the
hurdles they had to overcome and the price they paid, personally and
professionally, make them a unique group in Anzac history.

Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that?
Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license -- for
turning pretty. In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that
turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults
you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great
time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there. But Tally's new friend Shay isn't
sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay
runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world -- and it
isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine:
find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally
makes changes her world forever.

The winds of heaven by Judith Clarke
3 Volumes

When Fan was little she dreamed of magical countries in the far away blue
hills. As she grew up she dreamed of love, and the boys came after her one
by one by one. Clementine thought her cousin Fan's house in the country had
a special smell: of sun and dust and kerosene and the wild honey they ate for
breakfast on their toast. But then there were the feelings: the anger that
smelled like iron and the disappointment that smelled like mud. Fan was
strong and beautiful and Clementine thought she'd always be like that. But
Fan was seeking something, and neither she nor Clementine knew exactly
what.
