              I got up and walked the Te Araroa is a factual account of my end-to-end (through) hike of the Te Araroa trail which runs 3,063 kilometres from the top of New Zealand to the bottom. The official trail was opened in 2012 although it has been in the planning for many years. It is m...ainly on trails; however, it also passes through some villages and cities. I narrate what I am seeing and feeling and of the people I meet. It will describe to the reader the many high and low points and daily physical and mental challenges that a 119 day end-to-end hike will put the hiker through. Stories of being dropped off by boat into a high security area and how I got out; of being called into Kiwis' houses to stay the night or just to have a coffee; falling down the side of a mountain into a raging icy-cold river and thinking it was all about to end. It was the hike of a lifetime and probably the best way to see New Zealand and its wonderful people. I have now completed several long walks around the world however Te Araroa is still one of my favourites.

              Joss, Hero and Drake are prentice paladeros, cowboy-knights that ride dinosaurs and fight to protect their Kingdom. Now, they face the ultimate battle: themselves. The Kingdom of Ai is under siege. The Shadow God and his Court of Thralls are ready for war, and Joss and his brethr...en have a critical mission - to marshal the forces that will defend their land. But not everyone is willing to heed the call, least of all the former paladeros known as the Nameless. And with traitors in their midst, their mission is treacherous even before they've encountered the ever-growing Court of Thralls - and their fire-breathing dragons. Faced with more enemies than ever before - including people he once trusted with his life - Joss must somehow convince the Kingdom's potential allies that their cause is worth fighting for. But with his faith in the paladero way of life fading fast, he must first convince himself ... In the final instalment of this mesmerising fantasy series by Steven Lochran, readers are taken on a breathtaking ride through the kingdom of Thunder Realm. Perfect for fans of Diana Wynne Jones and the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan.

              Fulk and Melisende: King and Queen of Jerusalem (Hardback)

              Melisende and Fulk governed the Kingdom of Jerusalem during a period of significant change which coincided with the rise of Zengi and the subsequent union of Mosul and Aleppo under one ruler, the atabeg's attempts to control Damascus, and the consolidation of a more coherent and ...cohesive anti-Frankish campaign from the Muslim forces. This book will provide an extensive survey of Fulk and Melisende's reign, place their rule within the broader framework of kingship in the Crusader States, and consider the developments that took place under their governance. This volume will begin by addressing the couple's 'back-history' - Melisende's role as heiress, Fulk's political and military background in Anjou, and his experiences in the Holy Land before his second marriage - which must have shaped their approach to the government of the Latin East. Later chapters will investigate the dynamics of their political partnership, assess the decisions made in the kingdom of Jerusalem, determine their roles and impact in the internal and external politics and diplomacy, and detail the couple's working relationship through evaluation of their charters - which dealt with diverse matters such as law, donations and the endorsing of transactions. A final section of the book will focus on the memory of their reign and discuss the perceptions of both the king and queen as expressed during their lifetimes in contemporary letters and narrative accounts, and afterwards in later chronicles, charters, and manuscript illustrations down to the end of the thirteenth century. This will explore the gendered depictions of the pair and how well they fitted into the established patterns of gender and power, particularly in the light of Fulk acquiring his title through marriage rather than his own bloodline, and the impact of her husband's death on expectations of Melisende.
