              The transformation of New Zealand from a trackless waste into a nation served by many of the conveniences of the modern world did not happen overnight. Roads, bridges, railways and all the infrastructure of public utilities required the brains and organisation of engineers... and contractors, and the sweat and labour of many hundreds of workers, often for just one project. This is the tale of the pioneers of New Zealand and their magnificent achievement in creating a new nation through perseverance, hardship and frequently unbelievable difficulties.

              At a time when city tramways and railways in New Zealand fed each other's networks and often crossed the respective right-of-way's, noted author Graham Stewart shares the previously undocumented story and images of these interesting interfaces The crossing of a heavy-rail railway... train with a light-railed street vehicle over a street level crossing has always required extreme caution. From the early crossing keeper holding their red and green flags to high-tech signals of today; there has never been any room for a margin of error. For over 90 years when trams met trains, not one life has been recorded as having been lost in an accident - a truly remarkable record of safety. Some tram lines to the suburbs stopped just before a railway level crossing, as to proceed further would have required the additional maintenance cost of the crossing's manganese steel track diamonds, the crossing keeper's wages and signalmen of those years. This is the story of those crossings whether they were level or the vehicles crossed on a viaduct or bridge. The story is lavishly illustrated with photographs and diagrams researched from archives throughout New Zealand.

              Sixteen-year-old Bianca Taylor just wants to be a normal teenager but normal has never come naturally to her. Not only is she known as the Albino of Pentacle High, but Bianca is also an auric-empath; able to see and feel the colourful auras of those around her. To make mat...ters worse Bianca has started sleepwalking; waking to find herself naked in the forest, with visions of demonic beasts fresh in her mind. At first, she sees her nighttime wanderings as harmless. But when a local rancher goes missing, after a run of gruesome cattle killings, Bianca starts to fear for her safety. A handsome stranger appears in town, telepathically warning Bianca that she is in danger. But does he also hold the answers to who, and what, she really is?

              Angela Leigh's husband was diagnosed with two primary cancers, one of which was immediately life threatening, when discovered. During the course of the illness Angela and her husband Jeff observed that many of their friends and relatives became awkward around them, not quite kno...wing how to act or what to say. Jeff had a desire to write a book that might help those friends and relatives in their efforts to be supportive. He didn't get to achieve that in his lifetime, so Angela has 'picked up the baton' on his behalf and written this book. Angela recognises that the topic is a heavy subject so the desire for the book is such that someone can pick it up and just go to the question they may be struggling with to find an answer, or they may like to read the whole book, which has deliberately been kept to an achievable reading time. The book is broken up into three parts. Part One being a short overview of Angela and Jeff's story in Jeff's battle against cancer. Part Two is tackling six of the most common questions people struggle with and Part Three is a little about the struggles and process of carrying on after your loved one passes. Part Two's questions cover things like "What do I say?" "Should I pop round and see them?" "How do I deal with my own emotions?" and other such questions. Angela candidly answers these from her own experiences. She shares snippets of what they personally found helpful and also what they found not so helpful. If you have a friend who has a terminal illness, this book will be invaluable in giving you the confidence to be that supportive friend you long to be.

Igniting the infamous war of currents, Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current.
