From Pictland to Alba, 789-1070
cover image of From Pictland to Alba, 789-1070, for sale in New Zealand

In the 780s northern Britain was dominated by Pictavia, centred in north-eastern Scotland and Northumbria which straddled the modern Anglo-Scottish border.
Within a hundred years both of these kingdoms had been thrown into chaos by the onslaught of the Vikings and within two hundred years they had disappeared.
In this period occured the destruction of the Picts and the rise of the Scottish kingdom based on contemporary accounts from fragmentary sources which survive from this darkest period in Scottish history.
These important sources are presented in full and their value as evidence is thoroughly explored and evaluated.

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."

The history of Riccarton Bush and its association with the Deans family encapsulates the natural and social history of Canterbury.
The Deans brothers established the first successful farm on the Canterbury plains in 1843.
Jane Deans ensured the Deans family had a role in the history of the settlement of Canterbury, and the gift of Riccarton Bush to the people of Canterbury 100 years ago started a new chapter in the forest's recovery and the restoration of both historic houses.
In 2010-11 earthquakes badly damaged Riccarton House, but this special place has survived through the Riccarton Bush Trust's heroic efforts to secure the house's future.
