              Jacinda Ardern: The Story Behind an Extraordinary Leader (Hardback)

              Michelle Duff delves into Ardern's beginnings in small-town New Zealand, discovering a nose-ringed teen fighting for equality and her own identity in a devout Mormon family. Duff tracks Ardern's political career from being dismissed as a 'show pony' to her compassion during one o...f New Zealand's biggest tragedies, the Christchurch mosque terror attack of 2019. In its aftermath, Ardern has become a global icon for her strength and decisiveness while uniting a country in shock and mourning. Ardern attracted international headlines for being the second world leader to give birth while in office. But why was having a baby so meaningful, and what does it say about the continued struggle for gender equality? Has Ardern really been a transcendent leader, and what enduring mark might she leave on the political landscape? This is an engrossing and powerful exploration of one of the most intriguing political stories of our time-telling us as much about one young woman's ascendancy as it does about the country that elected her.

              I've created this book for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores alike. Whatever way we choose to eat, there is no doubt that eating more vegetables would do all of us good. So instead of a vegetarian cookbook, I'd more accurately describe this as a vegetable cookbook. Or, a very `ve...gful' cookbook! One with over 100 deliciously satisfying recipes to celebrate beautiful, colourful, bountiful vegetables.

              Amy has only ever known what life is like in the Clearing. She knows what's expected of her. She knows what to do to please her elders, and how to make sure life in the community remains happy and calm. That is, until a new young girl joins the group. She isn't fitting in; she do...esn't want to stay. What happens next will turn life as Amy knows it on its head. Freya has gone to great lengths to feel like a 'normal person'. In fact, if you saw her go about her day with her young son, you'd think she was an everyday mum. That is, until a young girl goes missing and someone from her past, someone she hasn't seen for a very long time, arrives in town. As Amy and Freya's story intertwines the secrets of the past bubble up to the surface. This rural Aussie town's dark underbelly is about to be exposed and lives will be destroyed.

From furniture to toys and games, tableware to ornamental objects, Royal Family memorabilia to Kiwiana, Crown Lynn to hand-coloured sce...nic posters, together these objects are a gloriously nostalgic, colourful and tangible record of the way we lived and the things we surrounded ourselves with. Christine has devoted her classic 1960s seaside bach, The Butterfly House to housing her collection, transforming it into a beguiling mid-century fantasy ... She entertainingly blends her own family stories with those of New Zealands manufacturers and craftspeople, sharing her journey into collecting as well as her knowledge and passion, and evoking nostalgia for the beach, the bach and bygone summers"--Publisher information.

              Towards the Mountain: A Story of Grief and Hope Forty Years on from Erebus (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              On 28 November 1979 an Air New Zealand plane crashed into the lower slopes of Mount Erebus in broad daylight while on a sight-seeing trip to Antarctica, killing all 257 souls on board. This was New Zealand's greatest peacetime tragedy. Not only was the crash deeply shocking for o...ur small country (it is said that everyone knew of someone on board) but the legal and political aftermath wreaked its own trail of debris. The poor conduct of airline management in the months that followed the crash was described as 'a litany of lies' by a Royal Commission of Inquiry who found the airline at fault rather than the pilots. In the aftermath, the stories of the families involved were forgotten, until now. Sarah Myles has researched extensively into the recovery and identification process that brought her grandfather and so many others home. She weaves through this her family's traumatic experiences and her own memories of that time, discussing the legacy of grief and the possibility of hope.
