Anne Collins / My Friends This Landscape
Bicheno to Cradle Mountain and beyond - this carefully crafted collection of poetry and essays, earthed and numinous, bound by location and a particular lived experience but infinite in intimation, exhilarating and deeply restful, is a small jewel of a work.’ - Terry Whitebeach
Brenda Eldridge / Connecting
Connecting is not a holiday travelogue. It tells how I made connections - connections that unified a lifetime’s experiences.
Brenda Eldridge / From Patagonia to Australia: Collected Prose
The stories collected here from Tales From My Patagonia, Down by the River, It’s Still Out There, There’s a Rainbow Serpent in My Garden and Eastwards are like a running journal of discovery. There will be others, because my discoveries are not finished by any means and I always have to write things down to make them real. But with each trip out into what I now lovingly call my extended garden, I am free of angst and, while in some respects no longer the innocent child, I learn more and more why I have always felt so at home in Australia.
Craig Cormick / Backseat Drivers
Backseat Drivers is a hilarious and biting satire on the intersection and byways of the past, the present and the future.
Kerry O'Regan / The Things My Best Friends Told Me
A woman sets out to walk the Camino, the ancient pilgrimage across the north of Spain. No longer young, she walks alone, leaving family and friends behind. But she also carries them with her, in the messages they’ve written on her stick. Each day she walks and each day she reads the messages, and muses on them. These are her musings, on the places she sees, the people she meets, the events she lives. They’re whimsical, witty, and wise.
Lindsey Jane Doley / Here, There and Everywhere: Memoirs of an Air Hostess
‘A perfect peek behind the scenes at what life was really like as an air hostess in the bygone era of the 1970s and 80s. Poignant in places, laugh-out-loud funny in others, this book is a definite must-read.’ - David Blake, London author
Lyn Drummond / Where To Go For a Seven-year Cycle
Where to Go For a Seven-year Cycle is a philosophical, often off the main tourist beat travel book based on the author Lyn Drummond’s seven years’ travel experiences working mainly in central and eastern Europe.
Valerie Volk / Of Llamas and Piranhas
Though the poems in this book take the reader on a South American journey from Chile to the Galapagos, it is not just another travel book. It’s a personal invitation in the form of a poem a day to join the writer in strange and exotic places.
