              Any sport is at its most glorious when two fierce and equal rivals face off against each other. It is the never ending drive of two rivals to outdo each other that often helps raise the bar of excellence in that sport. There are some sports rivalries that everyone knows about, li...ke the Federer Nadal rivalry or the Real Madrid Barcelona rivalry. Great rivalries in sports are not restricted to only tennis or football. Every sport has the story of a great rivalry to tell. Do you know what the greatest rivalry in Formula 1 is or Basketball? What about Rugby? Besides the aforementioned 'Fedal' and 'El Classico' rivalries, the book also tells the story of the greatest rivalry from each of the globally popular sports. How did these rivalries come into being? What are the high points of these rivalries, key matches and statistics? Read about how a dictator was responsible for the start of the 'El Classico' rivalry, how a rugby rivalry drove New Zealand to the brink of a civil war, a tennis rivalry as great as Federer-Nadal rivalry that tennis has almost forgotten, a cricket rivalry that predates even the Ashes, a chess world championship match between two of the greatest chess players that lasted 5 months and lots more.

              Travelling the world from your armchair! Travel journal recording the experiences of travelling the world in your fifties. This book has been written in response to a demand for information based on our personal experience of travelling the world in our fifties. It is not a book ...about staying in good hotels, in pleasant places using trouble free transport but rather about doing what many of us, as fifty or sixty somethings, wished we could have done in our twenties. This is then how Jasmins in Cowpads differs from the normal travel guide. In a series of brief but colourful snapshots it offers a first hand account of a journey around India and Nepal, from Thailand down through Malaysia and Singapore, up the east coast of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Mexico, returning via the US. With thought-provoking reflections and humorous observations it invokes the sights, sounds and smells of our sometimes amazing, sometimes appalling experiences en route and then provides a page of factual information on how to do it yourself.

              This early work by Dorothy Wall was originally published in 1933 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Blinky Bill: The Quaint Little Australian' is a children's story about Australia's most popular mischievous koala. Dorothy Wall was born on Ja...nuary the 12th, 1894 in New Zealand. From a young age Wall showed great talent as an artist and at age eleven won a scholarship for her drawing skills. She is most famous for creating Blinky Bill, an anthropomorphic koala who was the central character in her books Blinky Bill: the Quaint Little Australian, Blinky Bill Grows Up, and Blinky Bill and Nutsy. In 1985 a postage stamp honouring Wall for her creation, Blinky Bill, was issued by Australia Post as part of a set commemorating children's books.

              A collection in 3 parts (Season, Notes and Urban) of word pictures and small stories, each in the form of a Triptych of Haiku. An apparently unlikely combination, Rhona Stace is a veteran police officer from New Zealand who likes to write poetry. She is also a parent and active m...ember of her local Anglican church, enjoying a sometimes possibly too intimate relationship with God. She keeps chickens, and lives rurally with two cats and a goat. Oh, and she also just happens to be transgender. May or may not be related to Wesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding). Put all that together and you're going to get some pretty interesting poetry, given that she writes about pretty much anything and everything going on in her life. Nominated in the Hero category in the inaugural 2018 New Zealand LGBTI Awards, Rhona also has haiku in the 2018 edition of 100 Best Hooked on Haiku, a poem in the 2018 New Zealand Poetry Society Anthology. She has published two more collections of original poetry, entitled Two for Tea and now & then
