              A record of events from ABC reporters on the ground during our worst ever fire season The bushfires that burnt across Australia from June 2019 to February 2020 were unprecedented. By the time the rains came, they had devoured more than 18 million hectares of bushland, destroyed n...early 3000 homes, claimed the lives of 34 people, killed about a billion animals and driven more to the brink of extinction. The heartbreak, pain, loss and uncertainty has been felt far and wide. These were fires that affected nearly everyone along the east coast directly or indirectly, and touched the hearts of people across the country. But out of the tragedies, the fear, the lost homes, the burnt forests, the bleak holidays, the unrelenting smoke, have come stories of courage and community. ABC reporters on the ground during the crisis brought many of these stories into the homes of the nation. This book contains updates of these stories and others, as well as reflections on how such a crisis occurred and what we learnt. It is both a record of the events and a tribute to those who endured, escaped, fought and in some cases paid the ultimate price in the awful conflagrations that consumed our summer. Contributions are from Jen Browning, Jessie Davies, Daniel Doody, Matthew Doran, Richard Glover, Liz Hobday, Nick Hose, Tom Joyner, Jonathon Kendall, Stacey Lee, Hamish MacDonald, Jade Macmillan, Adriane Reardon, Michael Rowland, Peter Sommerville, Josh Szeps, Claire Wheaton, Williams, Casey Briggs, Baz Ruddick, Erin Semmler. All profits from this book will go to the bushfire recovery effort. By purchasing this book you are assisting people, animals, forests and communities affected by the fires.

              The gripping true story of the notorious Claremont serial murders and the nation's longest and most expensive investigation to catch the killer In the space of just over year in 1996-7, three young women disappeared from Claremont, an upmarket suburb in central Perth. When two of... the young women were found murdered, Australia's longest and most expensive investigation was established. More than twenty years later, an unlikely suspect was arrested based on forensic evidence that also linked the murders to two previous vicious rapes. The Claremont Killings, by local newsman Bret Christian, is a riveting story of young lives cut short, a city in panic, an investigation riddled with error and incompetence, and a surprising twist that absolutely no one saw coming.

              The incredible life of an astonishing athlete - fully updates Dylan Alcott has never let his disability get in the way of what he wanted to achieve. His family treated him no differently to any other kid, and it was the best thing they ever did. Growing up, Dylan always had a pos...itive attitude to life. So when he discovered sport, he'd have a go at anything and could always be found at the centre of the action, giving his best and playing to win. Then he tried wheelchair basketball and tennis and was hooked. Fast forward ten years or so, and the now three-time Paralympic gold medallist, Order of Australia recipient, Grand Slam tennis champion and philanthropist combines elite sport with a love for music (he's a triple j radio announcer and is famous for his crowd surfing). But Dylan's greatest passion is changing the way those with disabilities are perceived, and to inspire young people - whether they have disabilities or are able-bodied - to achieve their dreams. It's a passion that drives him every day of his life. In this fully updated edition of Able, Dylan shares his story. It's the tale of someone who's proud of who he is, who has a go, does everything with heart and soul, who always sees the upside and never takes himself too seriously. As inspiring, honest and funny as its author, Able proves that for every one thing you can't do, there are 10,000 other things that you can.

              Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The story of a sporting icon
               

              Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The story of a sporting icon (Paperback)

              The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges. One evening in May 1945, a small group of Sydney sailing enthusiasts decided that their planned post-Christmas cruise south to Hobart would be more enjoyable if they made it a race. And ...so began the story of a contest that quickly became ranked among the world's premier offshore racing events - a race that demands both immense physical and mental endurance of the individual sailor along with the coordinated effort of a close-knit team. It's a challenge where one mistake can lead to defeat, while success can deliver national and international acclaim. In its 75th year, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has become an icon of Australia's summer sport, ranking in public interest with such national events as the Melbourne Cup, the Australian Open tennis and the Boxing Day cricket test. No regular annual yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage or public interest as does the start on Sydney Harbour. The 628-nautical mile course is often described as the most grueling long ocean race in the world. From the spectacular start in Sydney Harbour, the fleet sails through the Heads, down the south-east coast of mainland Australia, across the notoriously tempestuous Bass Strait, then down the east coast of Tasmania. At Tasman Island the fleet turns right into Storm Bay for the final sail up the Derwent River. The race is an around-the-clock challenge from the harbour to Hobart, and the whims of the winds, waves, tides and currents means that, for each crew, nothing is certain until the finish line is crossed. The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges, an event where men and women from all walks of life are inspired and challenged by the beauty and power of nature.

              A former US Top Gun and Qantas captain's gripping account of how one of the world's worst air disasters, caused by a rogue computer, was narrowly averted. Former US Navy Top Gun Kevin Sullivan, captain of the ill-fated Perth-bound Qantas Flight 72, breaks his silence to give a gr...ipping account of how a rogue computer went 'psycho' and sent the Airbus A330 into two terrifying nosedives towards the Indian Ocean. Unlike other well-publicised near air disasters such as those described in Sully and QF32, Sullivan's plane carrying 303 passengers was out of control, with a G force of -8 driving anyone and anything untethered through the cabin roof. It took the skill and presence of mind of a veteran Top Gun to wrestle the plane back under control and perform an emergency landing at a RAAF base in the middle of WA. More than 100 injured people, many seriously, were airlifted to hospital in Perth. As automation becomes the way of the future, the story of QF72 raises important questions about how much control we relinquish to computers and whether more checks and balances are needed.
