            This is Kaz's story from humble beginnings. Strapped for cash with two babies at home in 1997, she decided to make Christmas cakes out of her home kitchen to sell at the local markets. Twenty-two years later, knowing it was time to let go of her baby she sold the highly successfu...l and sought-after cereal and snack brand, Puredelish. This is not a 'how to' book, but an honest account of her journey. It is Kaz's story from the heart of how she navigated through the madness of growing a seed of an idea on her own with no money into a well-recognised and trusted, brand. The Cereal Entrepreneur is a book about courage, grit, determination and never giving up on your dream, even when others say it's not possible. This is about a woman and her dreams for her family, her love for her people and the deep love for her brand. It's about defying the odds, following your passion and always trusting your gut. And when the going gets tough, roll your sleeves up and get on with the show.

            'The sky above our heads was uncaged and unlike us, free.' The extraordinary true story of Kylie Moore-Gilbert's fight to survive 804 days imprisoned in Iran. On September 12, 2018 British-Australian academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert was arrested at Tehran Airport by Iran's feared Isl...amic Revolutionary Guards. Convicted of espionage in a shadowy trial presided over by Iran's most notorious judge, Dr Moore-Gilbert was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Incarcerated in Tehran's Evin and Qarchak prisons for 804 days, this is the full and gripping account of her harrowing ordeal. Held in a filthy solitary confinement cell for months, and subjected to relentless interrogation, Kylie was pushed to the limits of her endurance by extreme physical and psychological deprivation. Kylie's only lifeline was the covert friendships she made with other prisoners inside the Revolutionary Guards' maximum-security compound where she had been 'disappeared', communicating in great danger through the air vents between cells, and by hiding secret letters in hava khori, the narrow outdoor balcony where she was led, blindfolded, for a solitary hour each day. Cut off from the outside world, Kylie realised she alone had the power to change the dynamics of her incarceration. To survive, she began to fight back, adopting a strategy of resistance with her captors. Multiple hunger strikes, letters smuggled to the media, co-ordinated protests with other prisoners and a daring escape attempt led to her transfer to the isolated desert prison, Qarchak, to live among convicted criminals. On November 25, 2020, after more than two years of struggle, Kylie was finally released in a high stakes three-nation prisoner swap deal orchestrated by the Australian government, laying bare the complex game of global politics in which she had become a valuable pawn. Written with extraordinary insight and vivid immediacy, The Uncaged Sky is Kylie Moore-Gilbert's remarkable story of courage and resilience, and a powerful med

            Robert Long and his family - wife Catherine, and children Christan (17) and Robyn (14) - live in complete isolation, in a hut two days' walk south of Haast in South Westland. Robert has lived there for nearly 30 years; Catherine for 20 and the kids all their lives. Their only con...tact with the outside world is a helicopter or plane once a month, and two trips a year to the 'outside world'. This is the story of how and why Robert - known locally as 'Beansprout' - came to live at Gorge River, and the family's experiences there over the years, living self-sufficiently and forging close bonds with the natural environment. It is an inspiring tale of one man's decision to 'drop out' of capitalist society and successfully establish a lifestyle most New Zealanders can't even imagine, harking back to the days of the earliest pioneers.

            My Father and Other Animals: How I Took on the Family Farm

            Sam Vincent is a twenty-something writer in the inner suburbs, scrabbling to make ends meet, when he gets a call from his mother- his father has stuck his hand in a woodchipper, but 'not to worry - it wasn't like that scene in Fargo or anything'. When Sam returns to the family fa...rm to help out, his life takes a new and unexpected direction. Whether castrating a calf or buying a bull - or knocking in a hundred fence posts by hand when his dad hides the post-driver - Sam's farming apprenticeship is an education in grit and shit. But there are victories, too- nurturing a fig orchard to bloom; learning to read the land; joining forces with Indigenous elders to protect a special site. Slowly, Sam finds himself thinking differently about the farm, about his father and about his relationship with both. By turns affecting, hilarious and utterly surprising, this memoir melds humour and fierce honesty in an unsentimental love letter. It's about belonging, humility and regeneration - of land, family and culture. What passes from father to son on this unruly patch of earth is more than a livelihood; it is a legacy.
