              In this joyful novel, our narrator is Charles Dickens's tenth child, Edward Bulwer Lytton Dickens, known as Plorn. Sent, as his brother Alfred had been before him, at sixteen years of age, to Australia to learn to 'apply himself', we follow his early Australian adventures in outb...ack NSW learning to become a man from the most diverse and toughest of men. Part of Dickens' motivation was to separate these younger of his children from the Dickens family schism, where Charles had expelled his wife from the family home, keeping her sister Georgie there to run the household and taking up with the actress Ellen Tiernan. Plorn arrived in Melbourne in late 1868 carrying a terrible secret. He has never read a word of his father's work. After a very brief stopover he is sent out to become a gentleman stockman on a 2000 square mile station in remotest, semi-arid parts of NSW. Here he inevitably gets enmeshed in a tribe named the Paakintji and various other folk, colonists, colonial-born, ex-convicts, ex-soldiers, and very few women - though he is struck by each one he does encounter. Plorn did not expect he would encounter the same veneration of his father and familiarity with his work in Australia that was rampant in England. Against this backdrop, and featuring cricket tournaments, horse-racing, bushranging, sheep droving, shifty stock and station agents, frontier wars and first encounters with Australian women we follow Plorn, and sometimes his brother Alfred, through wonderful adventures as he works to apply himself. This is Tom Keneally in his most familiar terrain. Taking historical figures and events and reimagining them with verve, compassion and humour. It is a romp.

              This book is for those wanting to create vibrant, profitable and healthy food production systems. For the Love of Soil was written to communicate the often complex and technical know-how of soil in more digestible terms, with case studies from regenerative farmers, growers and... ranchers in Australasia and North America. I reveal what inspired these land managers to shift their thinking and what have been the results from a process of restoring the soil-gut-microbiome. We'll also explore the principles and tools so you can take actions to regenerate your own soil resource, no matter the scale.

              A vital account of how sustainable farming can address urgent issues such as climate change and water scarcity, health and nutrition, land stewardship, renewables vs. the coal industry, as well as meaningful and fulfilling rural employment. And a call to arms. You know who is min...ding the farm - our consumption and behaviours affect how soil is managed and what it produces. We all are. The big-picture challenges created by mass-produced agriculture are discussed, the devastation of the drought and other climate variables are unpacked, the new crops introduced and the impacts on biodiversity are unravelled. And, Patrice poses solutions and alternatives to some of the most confronting issues challenging those working on the land, and eating off it. She believes we can, and already do, produce enough good food for all populations to be well-nourished. We just need to manage it better.Patrice has invested heavily in sustainable and organic methods on her farm and travelled the world exploring best practice. Here she provides a window into the pleasures of inhabiting the land, and promotes an alternative way of thinking about value in life, no matter where you live. Elmswood Farm is quintessential Hunter Valley, but Patrice uses it as the springboard to discuss national concerns with global ramifications.

              'I used to be a commercial fisherman, chasing your dinner on the high seas for a living, but now I farm twenty acres of saltwater, growing a mix of sea greens and shellfish.' In Eat Like a Fish Bren Smith - a former commercial fisherman turned restorative ocean farmer - shares a ...bold new vision for the future of food: seaweed. Part memoir, part manifesto, through tales that span from his childhood in Newfoundland to his years on the high seas aboard commercial fishing trawlers, from pioneering new forms of ocean farming to surfing the frontiers of the food movement, Smith introduces the world of sea-based agriculture and advocates getting ocean vegetables onto our plates. There are thousands of edible varieties in the sea! Here he shows how we can transform our food system while enjoying delicious, nutritious, locally grown produce, and how restorative ocean farming has the potential to create millions of new jobs and protect our planet in the face of climate change, rising populations, and finite food resources. Also included are recipes from acclaimed chefs Brooks Headley and David Santos. Written with the humour and swagger of a fisherman telling a late-night tale, this is a monumental work of deeply personal food policy that will profoundly change the way we think about what we eat.
