96 indexed pages including b/w and colour illustrations. Fabulous treasure lost for 300 years; mutineers chained to the ship's deck; a rescue on horseback; bodies vanished in a blowhole. These extraordinary stories of danger and heroism at sea chart the extremes of human experience. For primary and secondary school students. Covered in adhesive plastic. Shipwreck stories and miraculous rescues After long months of sailing across the oceans, navigating by sun and stars, there on the horizon is the new land. But wild seas, jagged rocks and coral reefs snared many a ship before it could reach safety. How many people drowned when the Cataraqui smashed into rocks off King Island? Find out how the 'graveyard' and treasure of the Batavia was uncovered after 300 years; how Captain Bligh and his castaways suffered in an open boat after the mutiny on the Bounty; how two people survived the wreck of the Loch Ard when everyone else perished. Did Eliza Fraser owe her life to the Aborigines? How do you explain the ancient wreck before the arrival of Captain Cook? Unbelievable but true, these extraordinary stories of disaster and rescue at sea chart the extremes of human experience - from brutality and madness to heroic courage and endurance.

96 pages including educational diagrams by Jeff Raglus. It all starts when Charlie Carver decides to impress a 14 year old babe called Alice by riding his go-kart down Suicide Hill. As he fails to take a corner and ends up at the orthodontist's instead of in her arms, Charlie accidentally learns about the scientific laws of Inertia, Gravity and Momentum. We all know that the law of gravity made an apple fall out of the tree and onto Sir Isaac Newton's head, and that Mr Archimedes discovered that his bath overflowed when he got in it, so he ran around the streets shouting 'Eureka!' But whether you're in the nude or not, can science help you become a babe magnet? Find out in this funny and brilliantly original collection of stories by Laurie Stiller with illustrations by one of Australia's hottest artists, Jeff Raglus.

Catholic thinking: issues in today's Church, Young, John
8 Young, John Catholic thinking: issues in today's Church
Australia Cardinal Newman Catechist Centre 1990 0909615187 / 9780909615185 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
176 indexed pages. While each piece in this book is complete in itself, each is linked to the others to present a clear, concise discussion of many issues in today’s Church. The field is a wide one, as a glance at the table of contents will show. Dogma, the spiritual life, moral and social concerns, education, apologetics, these are all treated - lucidly, thoughtfully, sometimes provocatively. "I have endeavoured to present Catholic teaching clearly and without compromise, as it is found in the whole of our Tradition, with particular reference to the Second Vatican Council and the years since then" - from the Preface. John Young, B.Th., has written extensively for Australian and overseas journals on religion and related subjects, and has taught philosophy in Catholic seminaries. He is author of a short introduction to philosophy, REASONING THINGS OUT (also published in this series of Tracts for the Times), which has received high praise from reviewers in Australia and America.
