            The most anticipated political memoir of the year. A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of a political life. From humble beginnings as the daughter of Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost the very top of politi...cs. The youngest daughter of older parents, Judith Collins grew up in rural Walton, Waikato on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running for Class President. She won. After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit, John Key. When Key and National won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals the truth behind what it is like to survive - and thrive - as a senior female politician for two decades.

            Tall tales of New Zealand bushmen, tradies and back-country rouges Mike Bellamy's father Barry is as tough as they come. Widely credited as the inspiration for Barry Crump's back-country character Sam Cash, Barry was a roving worker in rural North Island during the 50s, 60s and 7...0s. Tough Country is a book about a father by a son, about a bygone era of bushmen, scrub-cutters, hunters and shepherds. It's also a book about the author's own life working the land, and the characters of the 80s and 90s, from tradies and digger-drivers to drain-layers and wharfies.

            Tim Saunders is a farmer and a writer. He describes the seasons: Summer, with shearing, slaughter, crop harvest and conservation; Autumn and its floods, trading stock, drenching and dogging; Winter, the maize harvest and lambing; and Spring, with docking, pet sheep and weaning. H...e explores how a farm that has been in the same family for five generations functions, and describes the everyday lives of farmers and their enduring love of the land and the animals they work with. This is powerful and poignant writing that outlines a lifestyle often taken for granted, and it goes some way to explaining why farmers love what they do and are also conflicted by what they do.

            A memoir from award-winning writer and inspirational speaker Tim Tipene. Tim founded the Warrior Kids programme 22 years ago. Himself the product of rape, he spent a miserable childhood in which he was abused by both his birth and foster families. His courses now empower families... and children and this memoir is a recollection of his life, raised in vio- lence, following on from a junior collection published last year, Mrs Battleship. It is a tribute especially to the few teachers who acted at different times to protect him, as well as his discovery that not everyone endured what he did.This is funny, sad, poignant and telling. Tim has found jewels of wisdom and love in a world that had no place for him

            A personal account of WWI from the diaries of a Gisborne farm boy, shaped into a gripping narrative by the diarist's grandson 100 years later. Follow Alick as he moves from his last night on the farm in early 1916, through enshipment and training, then off to the battle fields of... France and Belgium, occupied Germany and back home. His treasured diaries covered the tedium, the mud, the fear and sorrow, the discomfort, the periods of leave and the letters from those back home. See the war unfold through Alick's eyes and learn about his and his companions' attitudes to the army, to female company, to the enemy soldiers, to the hospitality provided by people under pressure, to the war itself. And after the drama and tragedy of war, comes the return home and the efforts required to make a living while remaining steadfastly silent about the traumas of those terrible years - an unseen fight that continued and affected generations to come.

            Charles Upham was the most highly decorated soldier in the Commonwealth forces of WWII, and could arguably be called the bravest soldier of the war. He won two Victoria Crosses (the only combat soldier ever to do so) and in the opinion of his superiors deserved many more.
