            From the origin of life, through the age of dinosaurs stalked by the terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex, to the earliest humans, this book tells the story of life on Earth. Dinosaurs may be the stars of the show, but the book is truly comprehensive, with fossil plants, invertebrates, a...mphibians, fish, birds, reptiles, mammals, and even early bacteria conjuring up an entire past world. To put all of these extinct species in context, the book explores geological time and the way life-forms are classified. It also looks at how fossils preserve the story of evolution, and how it can be deciphered. The chapter on Young Earth explains how forces shaped Earth and steered the course of life. The main part of the book - Life on Earth - lays out and catalogues the rich story of life, from its beginnings 4 billion years ago, through each geological period, such as the Jurassic and Cretaceous, to ?the present. The stunning visuals and authoritative text make Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life a fascinating and revealing encyclopedia that will appeal to the whole family.

            An exhibition catalogue - with beautiful photographs and essays Tungaru: The Kiribati Project' is a collaboration between contemporary New Zealand artists, Chris Charteris and Jeff Smith. Tungaru is the pre-colonial name for Kiribati. The project was born out of Chris' desire... to return to Kiribati, to meet his family and to experience life on these tiny strips of atoll in the Pacific. Always with a camera in hand, Jeff was there to capture much of the journey. The exhibition is not only a personal story about family but one that also references the larger global issues of climate change, over-population and threats to traditional cultures. The exhibition features a selection of artworks from Chris, an interactive Kiribati warrior created by Jeff, and archival footage of Kiribati, alongside pieces from the Museum's Kiribati collections.

            'Please. I'm in hell!' The truth of that was in his face. The rims of his eyes were red-raw, his hair was matted, he hadn't shaved since knocking at her door, when he'd been clean-shaven - one of the few details she remembered of that blurred encounter. 'I know why you're avoidin...g me. Whoever told the cops told you, too.' It's 1970, and young Annette Cooley is part of a small team working on an archaeological dig on the New South Wales south coast - a site that appears to prove that Aboriginal societies in the late Holocene were becoming less nomadic, even sedentary. The discovery is thrilling in its significance, and the atmosphere in the group is one of charged excitement. The team is led by a husband-and-wife pair, stars in their field, Aled Wray and Marilyn Herr, and working on their sites promises to be the making of Annette as an archaeologist. On a new site, linked to the first, Annette starts to fall for a fellow student, Brian Harpur. But there are strange tensions and a hidden darkness within the group. Then one of their party mysteriously disappears. When police arrive, Annette makes a decision that will irrevocably mark her life, and Brian Harpur's. Written in simple, beautiful prose, and with great depth and moral complexity, The Beach Caves is a powerful story about jealousy, guilt, the choices we make, and the different paths our lives could have taken - shadow paths, which nevertheless leave a trace.
