Great Australian Outback Nurses Stories

Original Synopsis

"Great Australian Outback Nurses Stories has a total of 352 pages which are papers from writer 'Bill Marsh'. Stories and memories that capture the experience of nursing in the bush, gathered by the inimitable Bill 'Swampy' Marsh, bestselling author of Great Australian Flying Doctor Stories and Great Australian Police Stories. I've been a trained nurse for almost sixty years now and I've never once gone to work thinking, I don't want to do this. In fact, I've always said how it's been a privilege to be a nurse in areas where there were no counsellors, no psychologists, nothing – just me. With hearts as big as the outback, rural and remote nurses are a dedicated and gutsy bunch who work selflessly to care for their communities, often in isolated and inhospitable conditions, with few resources but plenty of experience, courage and care. Outback nurses deal with it all: broken limbs, labour pains, snake bites, sunburnt backpackers, lost explorers, vaccinations, defibrillations – even the occasional crook cattle dog. One thing they are never short of is stories to tell. This memorable and eye-opening collection of real-life accounts from nurses in the Australian bush is by turns inspiring, poignant, heartbreaking and hilarious – and Swampy should know. It was while he was researching this book he had a near-fatal fall from a cliff in Kakadu, and experienced first-hand the skill and heroism of these outback nurses in extraordinary situations. Bill 'Swampy' Marsh is an award-winning writer and performer of stories, songs and plays. He spent most of his youth in rural south-western NSW and now lives in Adelaide. Swampy is one of ABC books' bestselling authors of Australian stories; this is his sixteenth book. 2017-09-01 time of publication of the book, [-HarperCollins Australia-]"

In due course they will retell the same tale, adding in something of their own. And so listeners in time turn into storytellers. This inspiring book brings together the stories from across the world of listeners who themselves became storytellers. They reveal who influenced them the most, what drew them further in, what they learnt, and what they now wish to share with new generations.

Witnessing Australian Stories

Original Synopsis

"Witnessing Australian Stories has a total of 294 pages which are papers from writer 'Kelly Jean Butler'. The Australian Nation shows how British and Irish settlers and their descendants have combined to create a distinctive Australian nationality. Partington ranges widely and easily over politics, religion, education, literature, art, music, and sport. He identifies blemishes as well as merits in the Australia created by British and Irish immigrants, and values the legacy derived from their efforts. This work is a meditation on the shaping of time and its impact on living with and understanding atrocity in South Africa in the wake of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). It is an examination of the ways that the institutionalization of memory has managed perceptions of "transition " of events and happenings, of violence and recovery, of the "past" and the "new." The politics of historical truth, of memory, and of justice, play out in unintended ways. There is not only the ongoing struggle for survivors of state terror, but also the ways that the ongoing sense of injustice, the emptiness of reconciliation, and the fracturing of hope remain embedded in everyday life.

Dogs in Action

Original Synopsis

"Dogs in Action has a total of 160 pages which are papers from writer 'Maria Alomajan'. Humans are indebted to dogs. We get them to do all the jobs we can’t do; we expect them to save our lives, uphold the law, find our missing, comfort our sick and elderly, be our eyes and ears, watch over our families, move our stock, entertain us and keep us warm – all for a bowl of food, the tug of a toy and a pat at the end of the day. Dogs should be revered and recognised for achieving great feats to improve human life, and this book unashamedly does just that. It tells the stories of a number of dogs, from their initial selection for work, to their training, their work experiences and their relationships with their handlers and masters. A long-time dog-owner and journalist, Maria Alomajan fleshes out each story with colourful and heartwarming anecdotes based on her interviews with the owners of these selfless animals, together with a host of charming photographs. Among the animals profiled in the book are dogs working for the police and customs; farm dogs; therapy and guide dogs; search and detection dogs (including cancer, cadaver, truffle, avalanche, LandSAR and USAR dogs); acting and show dogs; pest control dogs; guard dogs; and sled dogs. 2013-10-28 time of publication of the book, [-Exisle Publishing-]"
