Bluey s War Book Excerpt:

Bluey O'Donnell and Ellen Sommers are childhood sweethearts ready to take on the world when news of the war hits their quiet country town. Spurred on by thoughts of glory, and physically strong from a lifetime of hard work on his family's property, Bluey rushes to enlist and is soon on his first overseas posting. Ellen, left behind to help manage the farm, lives in hope that she will see Bluey again, and guards a special secret through the anxious wait for his return. But nothing can prepare the couple for what lies ahead. As Bluey faces the greatest battle of his life, Ellen must make a heart-wrenching choice. This is a stirring and inspiring saga of a family torn apart by war, its unforgettable characters proving beyond doubt that love is stronger than fear.

Yarra Book Excerpt:

It was John Wedge, Batman's private surveyor, who named the Yarra Yarra. In September 1835 he was at the Turning Basin with some Kulin and heard them identify the river as it came over the Falls as, he wrote, 'Yarrow Yarrow'. It was only some months later that Wedge discovered they had been referring to the pattern and movement of water over the Falls, not the river itself. And ever since, it has been the Yarra's fate to be misunderstood- maligned for its muddiness, ill-used as sewer and tip; scooped, sculpted, straightened and stressed, 'cleaned up' to the detriment of its natural inhabitants; built-over, under and beside; worked mercilessly and then bridged almost to maritime extinction. In Kristin Otto's superbly entertaining new history, the whole sorry tale is laid bare. From the creation stories of Kulin owners and geologist blow-ins (and Robert Hoddle's bad-tempered expedition to the headwaters) to the twenty-first-century waterside building boom, Otto traces the course of Melbourne's murky river.

Blackhearts Book Excerpt:

This fascinating book is a firsthand account of the adventures of an ornithological field team studying long-tailed finches in outback Australia. In 1991, Nancy Burley, a noted behavioral ecologist, and her husband, Richard Symanski, went to Australia with their one-year-old son and four American students hired as field assistants and babysitter. The social relationships and problems that developed among these individuals in confined and exotic settings and the scientific discoveries that did -- and did not -- take place form the heart of the book. Symanski begins by telling how he and his wife set up this elaborate field expedition -- including the hiring of what seemed to be qualified, compatible, and knowledgeable field assistants. He then describes the harsh realities of their circumstances in Australia: primitive living conditions on an outback cattle station; field sites and subjects for study that were not as expected; and students who were not prepared for the rigors of field life and who became unenthusiastic about the work for which they had been hired. And he tells how he and his wife strove to overcome all the different challenges with which they were confronted. The book provides insight into the demands of professor-student-based fieldwork, particularly when generational conflicts, differing expectations, and culture shock complicate the business of doing science.

Amnesia Road Book Excerpt:

'At both ends of the world, I have found confusion and profound disagreement about how to read the story of the past, about who should write or speak it, and what parts of it should be written or spoken about at all.' Amnesia Road is a compelling literary examination of historic violence in rural areas of Australia and Spain. It is also an unashamed celebration of the beautiful landscapes where this violence has been carried out. Travelling and writing across two locations – the seldom-visited mulga plains of south-west Queensland and the backroads of rural Andalusia – award-winning Australian Hispanist Luke Stegemann uncovers neglected history and its many neglected victims, and asks what place such forgotten people have in contemporary debates around history, nationality, guilt and identity. 'This book will come to be regarded as a classic of Australian literature.' — Nicolas Rothwell 'Daring and original: an eloquent and moving meditation on place, memory and history.' — Mark McKenna 'Amnesia Road swept me away in lyrical storytelling, though veiled inside is a brutally complex shared history exposing the deliberate annihilation of the relationship between landscapes and their kin. Stegemann has lifted the dark shadowy veil of this denial, invisibility and silence to shift the direction of historical redemptive memory so the action of healing can begin.' — Brook Andrew 'Luke Stegemann explores with extraordinary tenderness and understanding the aftermaths of the frontier massacres in Australia and the atrocities of civil war Spain. He offers new insights about amnesia and the forgetting of the violent past and sets a roadmap to acknowledge and come to terms with the past. A brilliant achievement.' — Lyndall Ryan 'In this absorbing meditation on spectacular beauty and unfathomable cruelty, Luke Stegemann seamlessly joins his passionate love of two soils, Queensland in Australia and Andalusia in Spain. Amnesia Road displays that combination of warm empathy and cool appraisal essential in the best kind of history.' — Frank Bongiorno 'By turns beautiful and shocking, Stegemann's book reflects with a coolly objective, emotionally spare voice on the murderous pasts of Andalusia and south-west Queensland. Amnesia Road probes, with sharp intelligence, what history looks like when it can't be remembered and what it means to remember the otherwise forgotten dead.' — Francis O'Gorman, Saintsbury Professor of English Literature, University of Edinburgh

Australia Twice Traversed Book Excerpt:

This work is a collection of compiled journals of Ernest Giles an Australian explorer who led five major expeditions to parts of South Australia and Western Australia. These journals were published, as each journey ended, as parliamentary papers by the Government of the Colony of South Australia. The book shows that Giles had the bravery, resources, and spirit of enterprise, a few things that are essential to an explorer. His story is lighted up sometimes by what he has to say about the few well-watered and delightful tracts of land through which he passed during his various expeditions. His explorations were essential links in the chain of Australian geographical research, and he has acted wisely in preparing a complete and accurate account of them. Maps and illustrations considerably increase the value of the work. "I have had to encounter a large area of desert country in the interior of the colonies of South Australia, and Western Australia, in my various wanderings; but I also discovered considerable tracts of lands watered and suitable for occupation." said the author.
