            The thrilling, cinematic story of a community shattered by disaster--and the extraordinary woman who helped pull it back together A powerful, heart-wrenching book, as much art as it is journalism. --The Wall Street Journal A beautifully wrought and profoundly joyful story of comp...assion and perseverance. --BuzzFeed (Best Books of the Year) In the spring of 1964, Anchorage, Alaska, was a modern-day frontier town yearning to be a metropolis--the largest, proudest city in a state that was still brand-new. But just before sundown on Good Friday, the community was jolted by the most powerful earthquake in American history, a catastrophic 9.2 on the Richter Scale. For four and a half minutes, the ground lurched and rolled. Streets cracked open and swallowed buildings whole. And once the shaking stopped, night fell and Anchorage went dark. The city was in disarray and sealed off from the outside world. Slowly, people switched on their transistor radios and heard a familiar woman's voice explaining what had just happened and what to do next. Genie Chance was a part-time radio reporter and working mother who would play an unlikely role in the wake of the disaster, helping to put her fractured community back together. Her tireless broadcasts over the next three days would transform her into a legendary figure in Alaska and bring her fame worldwide--but only briefly. That Easter weekend in Anchorage, Genie and a cast of endearingly eccentric characters--from a mountaineering psychologist to the local community theater group staging Our Town--were thrown into a jumbled world they could not recognize. Together, they would make a home in it again. Drawing on thousands of pages of unpublished documents, interviews with survivors, and original broadcast recordings, This Is Chance! is the hopeful, gorgeously told story of a single catastrophic weekend and proof of our collective strength in a turbulent world. There are moments when reality instantly changes--when the life we assume i

            The History of Mt Eden - the District and its People
             

            The History of Mt Eden - the District and its People (Hardback)

            The History of Mt Eden - the District and its People brings together a fascinating record of the men and women, the places, stories and events that have helped to shape the suburb from the earliest pre-history of its distinctive geological formation until the present day. The imp...ortance of this fertile region and the mountain Maungawhau as a cultural and political centre for Maori and its subsequent focus for inter-regional conflict, together with its continuing significance reaching beyond the T?maki Makaurau Isthmus, have been accorded their rightful place in this comprehensive history. Following P?keha settlement, Mount Eden's local and political governance, religious and educational institutions, its art and culture, sports and community activities, transport, healthcare, industry and businesses are among the many subjects covered, as well as short biographies of many notable Mount Edenites. There is a list of the mayors and councillors who served the Mount Eden Borough, and an index of its street names. As many as possible of the intriguing details and stories of its people and of their everyday life have been included, together with a wealth of illustrations, some of which have never been published before. Undertaken by a volunteer group of dedicated historians working together as a team for some years, and marking the sesquicentenary of the setting up of the first Mount Eden Highway Board in 1868, this book takes its rightful place, providing a timely local history record as Auckland undergoes remarkable change and expansion.
