            The awesomely inspiring true story of how Tangaroa Walker turned his life around through farming - and how what he learned can help anyone succeed. Tangaroa Walker's early years weren't easy. Born into a gang family, he was adopted out twice and attended six different schools bef...ore he was six. He only went to high school to play rugby. Today, he is a true community and industry leader, running a successful dairy farm in Southland, NZ and reaching millions as the much-loved face of Farm4Life with his straight-up, crackup, honest videos covering everything from cow farming to goal-setting; fishing to family life; management to mental health. This is the story of how he did it - the good and the bad times, and all the lessons he's learned along the way (so you don't have to).

            The steep-climb highs and free-fall lows of my rollercoaster rural life They say it takes 10,000 hours to master a new skill. Well, seven years (60,000 hours) since former city boys Todd and Jeff moved to the country they should have nailed this whole farming gig, right? Yes, the...y make lovely wine and have built beautiful accommodation, and they've even learnt how to look after their rescued farm animals. But they didn't really count on Mother Nature getting involved. Drought, bushfires, sick animals, failed crops, heatwaves, enormous changes in the two industries they rely on to make a living, snakes, the unstoppable breeding of peafowl, insurmountable debts and broken machinery ... Just when they think they're on top of things, the land throws another few hurdles their way. But with fierce determination to succeed, willingness to evolve and their ever-present senses of humour, these boys might be down for the count but they aren't quite ready to throw in the towel just yet.

            My Year Of Living Vulnerably

            This is a book about love. In early 2019, Rick Morton, author of acclaimed, bestselling memoir One Hundred Years of Dirt, was diagnosed with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - which, as he says, is just a fancy way of saying that one of the people who should have loved him ...the most during childhood didn't. So, over the course of twelve months, he went on a journey to rediscover love. To get better. Not cured, not fixed. Just, better. This is a book about his journey to betterness, his year of living vulnerably. It's a book about love. What love is, how we see it, what forms it takes, how we practice it in our lives, what it means to us, and how we really, really can't live without it, even if, like Rick for many years, we think we can. As he says: 'People think they want cars, and they will, to get to jobs and appointments in cities and regions where public transport has failed them. But what gets them into those cars, out of the house, out of bed for God's sake, is love.' Praise for A Hundred Years of Dirt 'Morton mines questions that most of us feel too exhausted even to glance at. How did we get to be ourselves, and is it possible to change? And how can we begin to understand others who might seem like aliens? Morton is fresh...He's brilliant.' Helen Elliott, The Monthly 'Dark and provocative ... it's a reminder that this is a funny book and its author is a funny man. As Geordie Williamson notes in his review on this page, that sense of humour lifts this book above and beyond what it could have been: a human tragedy. It still is that. It's one of the saddest books I have read in a while, and one of the most honest .... I think this book should be read by every Australian.' Stephen Romei, The Australian 'Morton is a crack storyteller and his words and stories are infused with genuine compassion.' Christos Tsiolkas
