Australia New Holland 2006 1741103681 / 9781741103687 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
255 pages. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and more. California as you've never seen it before. Award winning travel author Ann Rickard decided to take a road trip around California (with a small detour to Nevada and Las Vegas). With her husband Geoffrey they hire a car and explore the breadth and depth of this rich and fascinating American state: there's the gold country and cowboy towns, the glamour of Hollywood and the breathtaking nature of Yosemite, junk food and gourmet cuisine, the 800 miles (not kilometres) of beautiful coastline and, to the authors great relief and delight, a wine region. Ann declares at the outset that she likes America and Americans, and this is reflected in the narrative as she reveals the weird and wacky side of the Californian Dream with light-hearted insights and comical asides. Geoffrey, he of the ever-ready corkscrew, keeps a steady hand on the wheel as this road trip unravels. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and the biggest backsides on the planet. Yes, this is California, but not as you've seen it before.

Power of Many: The Inside Story, Beasley, Allen
6 Beasley, Allen Power of Many: The Inside Story
Australia Random House 1998 0091837103 / 9780091837105 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
127 pages including colour illustrations. 1997 was it - the season every Port Adelaide supporter had been waiting for. The club generally considered to be the most successful in the history of Aussie Rules had finally gained entry to the AFL, the premier competition in the nation. However, despite a tradition built around an unrelenting will to win and despite being known as ’the Power’, predictions from media experts suggested the newcomers to the competition would struggle. Some even went as far to say Port Adelaide wouldn't win a game. How wrong they were. This is a book written by two diehard supporters who, for around six months of every year, are totally captured by the joy of being fanatical about supporting their club. A book by two people who have the greatest admiration for the achievements of an extraordinary football team in its first year in the big league. Above all, however, The Power of Many is a book that will stand as testament to the dawning of a new era in the history of the Port Adelaide Football Club. An era set to continue one of the finest traditions in Australian sporting history.

The Days & Dreams of Arcady, Bingham, Geoffrey C.
8 Bingham, Geoffrey C. The Days & Dreams of Arcady
Australia New Creation Pub 1985 0864080174 / 9780864080172 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xii + 246 pages. The Days & Dreams or Arcady - or Arcadia - was a rustic sylvan retreat from the inanities and cruelties of the world of foolish and vindictive humans. At least so the idea goes. The original Arcady was supposed to have been an actual place where innocence, pleasures and delights as well as good honest work was done, in the absence of a blasé and sophisticated spirit. It was a world of peace and joy, games and dancing. No Arcady exists - as such - but Geoffrey Bingham does write of an Austral Arcady. We are not sure whether it is tongue-in-cheek or cheek-in-tongue, or both! Anyway he writes, and The Days and Dreams of Arcady is an amusing and entertaining collection of short stories. Only the unthinking will miss their point - a message to modern man that he has perhaps missed the richest and most fulfilling of lives in his busy technological world. In any case, it may be just good fun to read Bingham. Entertainment is what good literature is about, and to read a master of pen and humour is no great burden for any reader to bear. PRO HART. As rich in whimsy - if not richer - is Pro hart, famed for his bush and rural paintings. He has taken one story from the many about Arcady, ‘Tally-Ho the Red Fox’, and faithfully interpreted it. Pro Hart has his own Aussie Arcady - wider than Wirril Creek, but much in the same idiom.
