BEADELL Len 
Bush Bashers
cover image of Bush Bashers, for sale in New Zealand

Beadell's Gunbarrel Road Construction Party built a network of roads stretching 4,000 miles across the almost unknown wilderness of Central Australia.
This book details his second road across Australia which was driven 1,000 miles from east to west through the heart of the Great Victoria Desert.
Construction took years, through the almost impenetrable mulga scrub and over sand ridges fianlly overcome by Beadell's bulldozer.
For five months his wife and infant daughter camped with him in the desert, commemorated by the Connie Sue Highway, a 400 mile stretch of road which extends from the Warburton Ranges to Rawlinna on the Nullarbor.
Beadell tells the story with an eye for the human and humorous details.
Beadell, one the last ot the true Australian explorers, was born on a farm at West Pennant Hills, NSW, in 1923.
As a surveyor and road builder he has worked all over the Australian outback from Arnhem Land to the Gibson Desert.
In 1958 he was awarded the British Empire Medal for his work in building the Gunbarrel Highway across Central Australia.

An alternative view of human consciousness, a theory of mind and being independent of matter, time, and space.

Drawing from the latest research, Dr. Dossey synthesizes the ideas of eminent scientists such as Schrödinger, Einstein, Gödel, and Margenau, with the time-honored knowledge of visionaries and mystics to present convincing evidence for a nonlocal, holistic view of mind and reality that can explain transcendental experiences.
In short, he provides new proof of the existence of the soul.

YESHE Lama 
Becoming Your Own Therapist
An Introduction to the Buddhist Way of Thought
cover image of Becoming Your Own Therapist;  An Introduction to the Buddhist Way of Thought, for sale in New Zealand

"These days, people study and train to become psychologists. Lord Buddha's idea is that everybody should become a psychologist. Each of you should know your own mind; you should become your own psychologist.
This is definitely possible; every human being has the ability to understand his or her own mind. When you understand your own mind, control follows naturally. "Don't think that control is just some Himalayan trip or that it must be easier for people who don't have many possessions. That's not necessarily true.
Next time you are emotionally upset, check for yourself. Instead of busily doing something to distract yourself, relax and try to become aware of what you're doing.
Ask yourself, 'Why am I doing this? How am I doing it? What's the cause?' You will find this to be a wonderful experience. Your main problem is a lack of intensive knowledge-wisdom, awareness, or consciousness, therefore, you will discovet that through understanding, you can easily solve your problems."

cover image of Marie Corelli's The Sorrows of Satan, or the strange experience of one Geoffrey Tempest, millionaire, for sale in New Zealand

A Faustian novel, widely regarded as one of the world's first best-sellers, and an influential fin de siecle text.
The destitute author Geoffrey Tempest recieves an inheritance and is introduced to a foreign aristocrat called Lucio, who guides him in how best to use his newfound wealth.
Tempest is unaware, despite warnings from people he meets, that Lucio is the earthly incarnation of the Devil.
His wealth leads to misery, and eventually, when confronted with Lucio's true nature, Tempest renounces evil and returns to society penniless hoping to purify his soul.
Tempest is in many regards a secondary character to Lucio / Satan's yearning to achieve salvation, for he truly believes in the Gospel yet he is forbidden ever to partake of it.

The role the Moletas and Wetekia played in the history of D'Urville Island has been acknowledged by having features on the island named after them. Angelina is a remarkable story of the struggles and triumphs of pioneering immigrant life in New Zealand.

Nga Uruora: The Groves of Life

Ecology and History in a New Zealand landscape.
Part ecology, part history, part personal odyssey, Park researches New Zealand's fertile coastal plains, whose natural character has vanished as the imperatives of colonial settlement transformed the original forests and swamps with ruthless efficiency.
Focuses on four places; Tauwhare on the Mokau River, Papaitonga in Horowhenua, Whanganui Inlet and Punakaiki on the South Island's West Coast, where small remnants of the indigenous ecosystems of kahikatea and harakeke still survive.
The histories of these places, what they mean to Maori, their ecological vulnerability and their significance for conservation are discussed.
