            Despite his best intentions, Paul Henry has written his third book. It's a charming and eccentric ramble through the United States and back to New Zealand during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are two weddings, an election, a new TV show and his love affair with Palm Springs, sad d...esert motels, road trips and other passions. A fascinating window into the intriguing world of Paul Henry. 'I love the USA. And in this book, in real time, over the first six months of 2020, I chronicle my thoughts and actions and draw from my past to try and work out why. I'm brutally honest and clearly disturbed, magnificently so! I literally don't care what people think. You will be surprised. This is me, now . . . You're welcome.' Paul Henry

            Signs of Life: To the Ends of the Earth with a Doctor
             

            Signs of Life: To the Ends of the Earth with a Doctor (Hardback, Main)

            • RRP: $45.79
            • $45.79
            • Internationally sourced

            In 2010 Stephen Fabes rode away from his career as an emergency doctor in London, on a journey that would see him ride the length of six continents; a cycling circumnavigation which took six years. Signs of Life is his story of a world of challenges - from Tajik camel spiders to ...camping on a frozen lake in Mongolia, to coaxing another few kilometres out of 'Ol' Patchy' (his faithful inner tube), and of fascinating interactions with the people of seventy-five countries; from hospitable nomads and curious children to vindictive border guards and gangsters. It is also a story of medicine calling Stephen back; he recalls his first pronouncement of death as he examines the frozen body of a monk high in the Himalayas; he is drawn into treating patients at a leprosy clinic; he helps refugees at The Jungle in Calais. All the while, he reflects on how societies treat their most vulnerable and draws comparisons with the lost souls he had treated back home in London; people who he resolves to truly listen to, when he returns to his vocation.

            Owls of the Eastern Ice: The Quest to Find and Save the World's Largest Owl

            Owls of the Eastern Ice: The Quest to Find and Save the World's Largest Owl (Hardback)

            When wildlife researcher Jonathan Slaght was a young Peace Corps volunteer in the Russian Far East, he caught a brief glimpse of a Blakiston's fish owl. It was the furthest south the species had been documented in over a hundred years, and a chance encounter that would change his... life. In Owls of the Eastern Ice, Slaght tells the story of his decades-long quest to safeguard the world's largest owl from extinction in Primorye, a remote Russian province dominated by Ussuri taiga forest, the only place in the world where brown bears, tigers and leopards co-exist. The fish owl lives exclusively along the rivers of Eastern Russia, Northeastern China, and Japan's Hokkaido Island, and can best be tracked in the winter snows, so very little is known about it. Now Russia's evolving fortunes, logging interests and climate change present new threats to the owl's survival. In this breath-taking nature and adventure story, Slaght recounts his experiences pursuing the owl through its forbidding territory, during months-long journeys covering thousands of miles, so that he and his fellow researchers can learn how to protect this endangered giant. Along the way he spends time with the Russians who inhabit the taiga and must survive in the harshest and most isolating of conditions. As much a portrait of the world's most extraordinary owl as of the Russian Far East itself, Owls of the Eastern Ice is a timely meditation on our relationship with the natural world and what it means to devote one's life to a single pursuit.
