            Finally, the complete story of NZR's most powerful conventional steam locomotive class has been documented. Author Jonathan Shingleton details the operational constrictions of the Midland line, history leading up to the development of the KB class, including proposals to transfer... X class to the South Island and add boosters. Learn how Midland Line east-bound loads were governed by EO haulage capacity through the Otira tunnel, the manufacture and bedding in of the KBs, their daily operation, the booster operation and maintenance, trialling of KB operations out of Dunedin, a proposal to transfer all KBs to the North Island, and their eventual displacement onto the Main South Line. Detail of the KB operations are neatly interspersed with crew accounts of operating the KB class; the firemen, drivers and fitters. Complementing the text is a lavish selection of black and white and colour images from the era.

But as the title suggests, it's also a practical guide to understanding dogs. Can you read their ears? Do you know the angle of the head that indicates a dog is dreaming of squirrels, and not listening to you? This fully illustrated guide will translate this body language, and other curious canine behaviour. So when your dog has taken you for a walk, put your feet up and enjoy this irresistible read!

            The clearest, most visual guide to space and the Universe for complete beginners to astronomy. Have you ever asked yourself how big the Universe is, how long it would take to get to the nearest star, or what came before the Big Bang? Then this is the book for you. How Space Works... shows you the different types of object in the Universe (so you'll know your pulsars from your quasars) and introduces you to some of the strangest and most wonderful things known to science, including antimatter fountains and the Fried Egg Galaxy. The book starts with an explanation of our view of the Universe from Earth, then takes a tour of the Solar System, the stars and galaxies, and the furthest reaches of space. The last chapter looks at the technology we use to explore the Universe, from the International Space Station to Mars rovers, and the new and revolutionary reusable rockets. Illustrated with bold graphics and step-by-step artworks - and peppered with bite-sized factoids and question-and- answer features - this is the perfect introduction to astronomy and space exploration.

            When Bob and Marlene Taylor sold their Upper Moutere hop farm lease, she said, "Good, now we can buy a house." He said, "No, we can buy a bulldozer." The Taylors and their three sons went on to turn a one-man forestry roading operation into one of the best-known contracting compa...nies in the Nelson Marlborough region. Bob developed his skills and his reputation as he moved from bulldozers to exca- vators, doing farm drainage work, laying pipes and building dams. He was alwaysan innovator, the first to take excavators into the forest and the first to modify and fabricate the buckets and attachments needed for the job. He built a skilled and loyal team around him and supported others in the industry. When he died suddenly at the age of 56 his sons Charlie and Matt stepped up and took over, and with Marlene's guiding hand and their brother Arthur's support they built the company to what it is today.
