Against All Odds
Against All Odds
This dramatic story of hope and devotion is based entirely on the cache of letters and documents found in an old 1930s leather suitcase. Intrigued by these family letters, Jillian Rothwell travelled half way across the world to trace generations of her family's journey from the Hapsburg Empire's Eastern provinces to occupied Vienna and beyond. Out of the carnage that was engulfing Europe, she uncovered the astonishing story of two courageous and remarkable Viennese who steered the family's miraculous survival, astonishing luck, dramatic departures and last minute getaways, all the way to the safe haven of New Zealand. At first it was not all plain sailing, but eventually their new home provided hope, purpose and abundant opportunities for the family to finally 'make it' with her escapee father becoming a prominent member of the New Zealand medical profession.

Agency of Hope The Story of the Auckland City Mission 1920 to 2020
This lively history by well-known historian Peter Lineham features over 100
photographs and takes readers inside a remarkable organisation working at the
front lines of a society in which poverty has become entrenched.
For 100 years the Auckland City Mission has been the lynchpin of the city's
compassion towards and support for the poor, the marginalised and the homeless.
Perhaps the best known of the city's charitable organisations, many thousands of
Aucklanders have been involved with the work of the Mission. Its story, marked at
times by struggle, is colourful and peopled by memorable characters.

Air Con The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming
Air Con The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming
Bestselling author and investigative journalist Ian Wishart tackles the issue of the century - global warming. In December this year, world leaders will gather in Copenhagen to usher in "a new Kyoto" protocol, conservatively estimated to cost taxpayers in Western countries somewhere in the region of US$45 trillion. For many people, this will mean increases in personal taxes of several thousand dollars a year, and/or much higher prices for food, goods and services because of new emissions caps and taxes. With that sort of money at stake, there are several big questions Wishart asks in Air Con 1. Is global warming actually happening? 2. Is it caused by human activities? 3. Is there really anything we can do to prevent it? 4. Are climate scientists and the United Nations telling the truth? 5. What's really behind the push for the Copenhagen Treaty? The answers to these questions may shock you. Air Con is a must-read for every New Zealander, and is the most up-to-date book on global warming available in the world. With chapters like, 'What Cars Did The Dinosaurs Drive?', and 'Fancy A Cold Bear?'
, this is an easy to read title using everyday language to explain the growing evidence against human-caused global warming.

Ajax the Kea Dog A Working Dogs Life in the High Country
Ajax the Kea Dog A Working Dogs Life in the High Country
Together, Corey and Ajax traverse the steep high country throughout the South Island searching out kea nests. Their part in the kea conservation effort is essential and both Ajax and Corey can rightly be called conservation heroes.

This heart-warming story describes how Ajax was trained to be one of the very few kea detection dogs in the world and tells of his various escapades in the unpredictable wilds of the steep back-country, including flying in helicopters, working in blizzards, heavy rain and dense fog, escaping from angry wasps and sleeping out in the bitter cold.

The strong connection between Ajax and Corey has proved vital to their survival and the important work that they do. Ajax is slowing down now and soon his high-country days will be over.
