Description:

Professor John Croucher gives an account of the first and continuing history of the first peoples to live in the region now known as New South Wales, as well as its history from the days of British settlement and its more recent history, of the waves of other immigrants who have made New South Wales their home. Each section in the book focuses on a different cultural or historical aspect which is examined thoroughly from the beginnings of British settlement. The complete development of the state is told, weaving through these various areas of focus, along with the important people and events. Remarkable pioneers have helped shape not only the state but the country as a whole and their voices, some coming to us via oral history, others via historical documents, make fascinating reading.

Description:

This second edition has been brought up to date following the latest developments in the state. The human history of Western Australia, as of all Australia, stretches back some 60,000 years. It is often assumed that European colonisation was very recent relative to the rest of Australia, but in fact it was contemporary with the first penal colony in Queensland, and while a South Australian settlement was still a gleam in Londons eye. Albany was first settled in 1826 and the Swan River settlement (later to become Perth) in 1829. It was also the first part of Australia to be even seen by Europeans: the Portuguese back in the early 1600s. The first 60 or 70 years of European settlement were very difficult, but when the gold rushes came in the late 1800s, WA was set on the path of mineral wealth that still drives its economy today.

Description:

Australia today is facing a health crisis such as we have never seen before. Rates of cancer, obesity, diabetes, asthma, ADHD and behavioural disorders in our children are all alarmingly high. What is happening and what can we do to safeguard our own health and the health of our children? Our diets must be part of the problem and fixing our diets must be a large part of the solution. The use of food additives in our everyday foods has increased so rapidly over the past 50 years that it is getting difficult to find foods which are additive free.

Description:

I'm not going to lie to you. This book is so gross, the grossness has been grossonified. Yes, not only does it contain grossness at a level similar to that in Better Out Than In, it goes even further. It's like, if the grossness level in Better Out Than In was, say, as tall as a baby, then the grossness level in Better Out Than In Number Twos is as tall as the tallest man in the world, standing on the second tallest man in the world's shoulders, and they are both on tippy-toes, and have their hands in the air, and are at the very top of the tallest tree on top of a hill. A tall hill. It's like, if the grossness level in Better Out Than In was a nine on a grossness scale, where one is the lowest and ten is the highest, then Better Out Than In Number Twos would be approximately 1,000,000,000.340 on that same grossness scale.

Description:

"Yet behind closed doors, the laughter faded and the fear came back..."
At thirteen years of age Cassandra Romanelli's world had turned out to be everything she hated! Cassie lived in a big Italian family with lots of complex relationships. Dealing not only with the rules and regulations of a strict, abusive father, Cassie also struggled with bulimia and had to overcome the taunts and bullying from her classmates, plus peer pressure and a struggle to be accepted.
Although pretty, Cassie just saw herself as a chubby Italian girl who was in love with the one guy she couldn't have - her best friend's boyfriend.
Following physical interference by a family member and betrayal by her best friend, Cassie's self-esteem plunged to an all time low. The pressures she endured led her to listen to an inner voice that directed her to do a most shameful thing to her body - Purge!
In her own mind Cassie felt that she was wise beyond her years. She had seen too much, experienced too many beatings and felt too many bruises, and yet... Cassie had no idea what was in store for her - her real misfortune was just about to begin!
Cassandra Behind Closed Doors, for young people, is a window into real life - and for adults, is an insight into the world of today's kids with the issues they have to face every day.

Description:

Charles Augustus Fenton, the loved and cherished child of Charles Senior and Elizabeth, is born at Fenton Manor into wealth and assured future prosperity. His protected and indulged childhood, apart from his having to endure a frightening bout of typhoid fever, could only be described as charmed.
At home, the servants of Fenton Manor are deferential towards their employers, but in the outside world, the Chartists are rebelling against the vast inequities of the early Victorian class system. Charles' interest in girls flares and he undergoes a torrid sexual awakening, with huge repercussions. A shocking event interrupts the calm, the consequences of which not even Charles' powerful and protective father can halt.
Whiting has crafted an intriguing and, at times, brutal tale for young adult readers.
