Funny, scary, amazing, and heartbreaking stories.... set in a world of vast landscapes, distance and merciless climate, the Wet, drought, bushfires and floods. It's about the trawling or mustering incidents, including 'Oh God, the baby's coming!' that interfere with the usual run of Gulf living. From the kids wanting a baby croc for a pet to the terror of snake-bite with a flooded airstrip and impassable roads, these women treat the extraordinary events in their lives as just part of their remote way of life.

 Softcover Softcover. Near Fine Condition/. First Edition. First Impression. Size: 8vo Octavo (standard book size). 420 pages. This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . In April 1994 in a remote NSW town, Donna Carson was bashed, doused in petrol and set alight by her de facto partner. She suffered horrific burns to 65% of her body and spent the next six months in hospital lapsing in and out of consciousness. Throughout, what kept her alive was the thought of her two young sons, Coe and Bodean. While she recuperated, social services stepped in and took them away. Against all expectations, Donna recovered, but after her release from hospital,she suffered secondary abuse, this time at the hands of government bureaucracy. She had to fight to regain custody of her children and then for the right to take the stand at her attacker's sentencing. At every step her questions were met with silence. In her search for answers, Donna uncovered a web of lies,conflicting evidence, missing records, negligent investigations and 'a whole lot of people who were suddenly struck deaf and dumb'. Learning from these experiences, Donna has gone on to expose the dangerous betrayals at the heart of our public organisations and private lives. She is a crusader, educator and guardian angel for countless burns survivors and victims of domestic violence and her inspirational and innovative support of victims of crime saw her honoured as the nation's 'Local Hero' in the 2004 Australia Day awards.

Lord interweaves her own story, and that of her clansmen, with the voices of men and women who recall the tumultuous experience of the last fifty years, and the legacy of the Cultural Revolution. In precise, subtle prose, Lord explores the reality of Red Guards and reeducation camps, of friends and families severed by political disgrace, and captures the individual voices of those caught up in them: the seven-year-old girl with a heart full of hate for her father; the journalist whose girlfriend believes the Party newspapers, not him; the imprisoned scholar who hid his writings in his quilt for years; the anti-revolutionary who tells his bitter story in a vein of high farce. All bear heartbreaking witness to the surreal quality of Chinese society today -- and to the astonishing resilience, humor, and heroic equanimity of the Chinese spirit. Quantity Available: 1.

 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. As New/. First Edition. First impression. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 359 pages. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. The Woman I Am is an incredibly inspiring autobiography by Helen Reddy, the woman who made "I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar" a household phrase. With her song "I Am Woman," Reddy provided the feminist anthem of the 1970s. She became the first Australian to win a Grammy, to have her own prime-time variety show on a U.S. television network, and to have three number-one singles in the same year. Then, at the height of her career, Reddy's world was shattered by the death of both her parents, and simultaneously, the news that she had a rare, incurable disease. In this riveting, frank, and ultimately brave memoir, Reddy reveals the emotional highs and lows that have shaped her as an artist and as a complex woman, with a rich inner life sustained by a strong spiritual faith.
