            Miriam Lancewood's first book Woman in the Wilderness told how she and her husband, Peter, lived for six years in the wilderness of New Zealand, hunting and gathering, and roaming the mountains like nomads. A year later they left New Zealand to explore other wild places. They wal...ked 2000 km through the forests of Europe and along the coast of Turkey, mostly camping under trees and cooking by fire. They lived on the edge, embracing insecurity, and found the unexpected. Sometimes it was pure bliss, sometimes it was terrifying. But when Miriam and Peter moved on to the Australian desert, they met with disaster. Wild at Heart tells that story. It's about life and death, courage and the power of love.

            The most anticipated political memoir of the year. A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of a political life. From humble beginnings as the daughter of Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost the very top of politi...cs. The youngest daughter of older parents, Judith Collins grew up in rural Walton, Waikato on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running for Class President. She won. After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit, John Key. When Key and National won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals the truth behind what it is like to survive - and thrive - as a senior female politician for two decades.

            How Rewriting Your Story Can Save Your Life From mindfulness to massage, pills to Pilates - Jehan Casinader tried it all, and none of it cured his depression. As an award-winning TV journalist, Jehan made a living from telling other people's stories - until he lost control of his... own. Increasingly suicidal, he wondered: was there something missing? This Is Not How It Ends chronicles Jehan's four-year descent into depression, and how he used the power of storytelling to climb out. In this gritty, vulnerable and life-affirming book, he argues that many of us think our brains are broken - but in fact, our stories are broken. We're playing poor characters in toxic stories, and our mental health is suffering as a result. Jehan began an experiment on himself. Could he rewrite his past? Could he reinvent his character? Could he create a whole new plot? Step-by-step, Jehan guides the reader through his process. Along the way, he learns about the power of suffering, courage and belonging. And he meets incredible people who have overcome mental distress by changing their own narratives. This Is Not How It Ends was written during the darkest months of Jehan's life, and is bound to challenge readers' understanding of mental illness. This practical book carries a message of hope: rewriting your story can save your life.
