An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
1 Al Gore An Inconvenient Truth
Bloomsbury 230179 London 2006 0747589062 / 9780747589068 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket "An Inconvenient Truth" Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling "Earth in the Balance" is being published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert brings together leading-edge research from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness and with humor, too that the fact of global warming is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book written in an accessible, entertaining style will open the eyes of even the most skeptical." 325 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

Bagman To Swagman: Tales of Broome, The North-West and Other Australian Adventures, Alistair McAlpine
3 Alistair McAlpine Bagman To Swagman: Tales of Broome, The North-West and Other Australian Adventures
Allen & Unwin 240016 Australia 1999 1865083895 / 9781865083896 Softcover Very Good Condition Alistair McAlpine has conducted a lifelong love affair with Australia. He's bought large chunks of it, developed some and turned others into a zoo and nature parks, and has travelled much of the length and breadth of the Continent.Arriving in Australia in his early twenties as a junior member of the English family building conglomerate McAlpines, he soon became involved in building Perth's first luxury hotel, the famous Parmelia and other projects followed. He was a pioneer of 'eco-tourism' with his development of Broome, creating the world-famous Cable Beach Club and also a remarkable zoo, which rapidly became known for the success of its breeding programs for the world's endangered species.A restless soul, Alistair McAlpine has continually traversed the country by light aircraft and four-wheel drive and his deep love and respect for the Australian outback and its people comes through these pages.An inveterate collector of art, artefacts and characters, Alistair McAlpine has long been concerned that Aboriginal artists should receive the recognition and rewards that are their due. He has spent many years building up superb collections of Aboriginal paintings and totems, some of which have now been donated to the Australian people, along with his collection of Australian and European sculpture, paintings and photographs.Familiar of prime ministers and royalty, friend of swagmen and Aborigines, Alistair McAlpine s Bagman to Swagman, the second volume of his memoirs, written in his own inimitable style, is redolent with humour, wisdom and a deep and abiding love for Australia and its people. 298 pages.

Taschen 242888 Great Britain 2006 3822849677 / 9783822849675 Softcover Near Fine Condition Besides feeding pandas and making a yummy addition to many Asian dishes, bamboo is also used as a building material, both functional and decorative. The dried stems are extremely sturdy and lend themselves to a multitude of uses. Shigeru Ban, for example, found a way to create lumber from laminated woven bamboo for a house he designed in Beijing. Other houses show off bamboo in more straightforward ways, lining the ceilings or floors with stems, or even forming walls. Bamboo is also used to construct furniture, lending a chair or a bed a warm, earthy feeling. This unique look book captures the many uses of bamboo in houses throughout China, Japan, and Indonesia. 191 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

The Bride Stripped Bare, Anonymous
9 Anonymous The Bride Stripped Bare
4th Estate 238933 London 2003 0007170866 / 9780007170869 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket This novel of sex, secrecy, and escape by an anonymous writer begins with a missing woman; her car lies abandoned on a remote bluff but no body is found. She was the good wife and mother: mannerly, quiet, and self-contained. But she has left behind an incendiary diary chronicling a disturbing journey of sexual awakening. As the diary opens on her honeymoon in Morocco, she believes herself to be happy . Swiftly, however, this smooth surface is ruptured as an act of massive betrayal propels her into a world of desire, fantasy and recklessness. What begins for her in the imagination ends in a downward spiral of obsession and release. The protagonist finds an unlikely heroine to inspire her in a dusty, rare manuscript written by an anonymous woman in the 1600s, a cry from the heart for women to live and love freely. With this as her guide, she dares to challenge convention as she learns the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. The question is, how long can her soul sustain a perilous double life? Coolly impassioned, "The Bride Stripped Bare" explores the truth about love and sex. Couched in a deceptively simple style, it will make you question whether it is ever entirely possible to know another person. 376 pages. Pen mark to bottom of page edges indicating remainder mark.

Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren
13 Astrid Lindgren Pippi Longstocking
Oxford University Press 241894 Oxford 2011 0192758233 / 9780192758231 Softcover Near Fine Condition Pippi Longstocking is nine years old. She has just moved into Villa Villekulla where she lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase full of gold coins. The grown-ups in the village try to make Pippi behave in ways that they think a little girl should, but Pippi has other ideas! She would much rather spend her days arranging wild, exciting adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories. Pippi thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars, or tugging a bull's tail. Generations of children have fallen in love with Pippi Longstocking. Just like Tommy and Annika, readers are instantly charmed by her warmth and sense of fun. Astrid Lindgren's children's classic first appeared in 1945. Astrid once commented, 'I write to amuse the child within me, and can only hope that other children may have some fun that way, too.' When she was growing up, Lauren Child loved Astrid Lindgren's books. She remembers: 'I discovered Pippi when I was about eight years old and found her completely inspiring.' Known and loved as the creator of some equally feisty little girls - notably Clarice Bean and Lola - Lauren has brought her own inimitable style to this beautifully-illustrated edition of Pippi Longstocking. 207 pages.
