Down The Dirt Roads : A Memoir Of Love, Loss And The Land
Treasure, Rachael
ISBN: 067007943X
Penguin, Victoria, 2016. Edition Unstated
 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/. Edition Unstated. Publisher Marketing: A powerful and moving memoir about healing, healthy food, and hope by Australia's leading rural writer and environmental entrepreneur. "For me, being in a paddock means anything is possible..." Country girl and bestselling novelist Rachael Treasure had worked hard to build a long-dreamed-of lifestyle on her own patch of dirt in Tasmania's rugged and beautiful wilderness. But through the breakdown of her marriage, Rachael lost her family farm and, in her words, lost her way in life. Discovering an all-new compass to live by, she took her two kids and her dogs and left the beaten path. Intensive farming, men on the land, and women in the home--everywhere Rachael looked she saw ongoing harm to the soil and the foodchain. By going down the dirt roads and getting back to grassroots, she discovered another set of stories about country life in Australia, and a different way to live on the land. From her rebel granny to pioneering farmers and passionate animal handlers, Rachael became inspired by fresh ways to do things. Down the Dirt Roads starts as a heartfelt and moving insight into the life of a single mother displaced from her home, and becomes a groundbreaking and powerful book about healing, health, and hope. Nourishing and sustaining, it presents a practical and positive vision of what life on our land could become. Trade Paperback. Size: 180mm - 250mm. 301 pages. Covers have some shelf-wear and bumping to corners & extremities. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Australia; Farming & Rural Life.

What it must provide - if the homestead is to have true success - is a shrine to tranquility, an island of calm sanity to which you can retreat each day from the hectic outside world." Gene Logsdon is uniquely qualified to write about homesteading - his heart has never been far from the land. He was born and raised on his family's farm, and as an adult he established a two-acre homestead before moving on to operate a 32-acre farm of his own. Quantity Available: 1.

This book is based on papers presented at the "Tropical Soybean Workshop held at IITA from 30 September to 4 October 1985. "In this book, we have reviewed the constraints on Soybean production and utilisation in the tropics and the research being conducted to overcome them. We have avoided details of crop origin, taxonomy, and genetics since this information is available elsewhere. We have concentrated on current efforts in breeding in the tropics and have highlighted the progress made on pest, disease and weed control, and agronomic practices. The status of Soybean research in different tropical regions is covered as well." From the preface. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.

Benson, Richard
ISBN: 0141012943
Penguin, Great Britain, 2006. 
 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Very Good/. . 230 pages. Tanned pages. When Richard Benson was growing up he felt like 'the village idiot with O'levels' - glowing school reports aren't much help when you're trying to help a sow give birth, or drive a power harrow in a straight line without getting half the hedgerow stuck in the tines. He left Yorkshire to work as a journalist in London, but returned when his dad called with the news that they were going to have to sell the family farm, and, in so doing, leave the home and livelihood that the Bensons had worked for generations. This is not only a moving personal account, but also one that reflects a profound change in rural life. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Family & Relationships; Farming & Rural Life.

An Outback Life

Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2011. First Edition
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good/. First Edition. 319 pages. Covers have light creasing. Spine is uncreased. Pages are lightly tanned. All I could think of as my heart thumped in my chest and the rumble of 900 stampeding buffalo rocked my vehicle was, 'Strewth! Am I in trouble now!' In AN OUTBACK LIFE, Mary Groves describes the heart-breaking isolation, the hard work and the rises and falls in her family fortunes as they battle to survive in the Top End. Mary was just 14 when her family moved to the Northern Territory from Melbourne. In her early 20s, she met Joe Groves - a cattleman, horse breaker, drover and rodeo rider. Mary and Joe fell in love and raised four children while leading an exciting and challenging life on an array of cattle stations. During her 40 years in the outback, Mary faced death, disaster and disappointments with remarkable resilience and stoicism. She learned to operate helicopters, cattle trucks and anything else it took to help keep her family afloat, proving that if you want something badly enough you need tenacity, perseverance and - most importantly - a sense of humour. An earthy tale of love, hope, loss and survival in the outback, Mary tells her story at a lively pace, with one entertaining yarn after another. Quantity Available: 1.
