            Following the hugely successful Sunday Times Bestseller, Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize nominee and Costa shortlisted, The Salt Path, Raynor Winn returns with her second brilliant book. This time the narrative explores the difficulties surrounding the return to mainstream life... after a period of homelessness. Recovering self-esteem and trust, in herself and in others, is harder than she expected. Raynor and her husband Moth continue to face his debilitating illness, until an incredible gesture by someone who read The Salt Path changes everything. This book is about readjusting to life after homelessness, but also about recovering trust and self-belief after a traumatic event - feelings that can translate to many episodes in the life of any of us.

            Speed Kings: Australia and New Zealand's Quest to Win the Indy 500, the World's Greatest Motor Race (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Winning the Indianapolis 500, the greatest spectacle in motorsport, has been a quest for Australians and New Zealanders since the first race in 1911. Seventeen have tried and two have succeeded, New Zealand's Scott Dixon in 2008 and Australia's Will Power in 2018. More than a cen...tury before, Rupert Jeffkins, Australia's original speed king, entered the first 500 and on his second attempt in 1912 came within five kilometres of victory. He and Italian Ralph de Palma created legend when they pushed their car to the finish line when it blew up while leading. Speed Kings tells Jeffkins' full story for the first time. The lure of the Brickyard, paved with 3.2 million bricks, all now covered except for a ceremonial 'Yard of Bricks' at the finish line, has drawn champions from both sides of the Tasman. Three-time world champion Sir Jack Brabham, his son Geoffrey and grandson Matthew have each tried to win. So have the 'big three' of New Zealand motor racing: Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme and Chris Amon. Brabham was instrumental in changing the face of the Indianapolis race when he raced his rear-engine Cooper Climax against the monstrous front-engine Indy roadsters of the time. Blinding speed - nudging 380 km/h and averaging 280 km/h over 500 miles - makes the Brickyard one of the most precarious racetracks in the world. Forty-two drivers have died attempting the 500. Indy doesn't offer up victory lightly. It's taken Dixon and Power, who've dedicated their careers to IndyCar racing, to win it. Now Australian Supercar champion Scott McLaughlin, a New Zealander, looks set to become the next driver from down under to chase American motor racing's greatest prize. Speed Kings tells the story of the drivers, team owners, engineers, even commentators who've made The Brickyard their quest.
