              Much has been written about explorer Ernest Shackleton's three courageous expeditions to the Antarctic. What is not so well-known is the crucial role that Captain Frank Worsley played in saving the lives of the crew of Endurance after it got stuck in ice floes and broke apart dur...ing the attempt to traverse the Continent in 1914. After abandoning their ship, in the Weddell Sea, Frank led marches across the ice in the hope of reaching land. When their ice flow split, endangering all their lives, the survivors boarded three small lifeboats. Frank navigated them to Elephant Island during a terrific storm. When they found the island uninhabited, Frank led a six-man rescue party 1300 kilometres overland to a whaling station in South Georgia. Without his precise navigation skills and incredible determination, the rescue party would never have made it. One day after reaching the whaling station, he set out again to go back and rescue the other members of the lifeboat party.

              Beekeeper David Cramp explores the origins and evolution of man's only truly wild, food-producing livestock, the extraordinary complexity of the hive and honey-making process, the mysteries of the life of the queen, workers and drones and their sophisticated language and navigati...on systems.We underestimate the intelligence of these amazing insects. Bees know left from right, have a concept of zero, can count up to four, memorise landmarks on an internal brain map, and if they are ill they will go on a health food diet.The Honey Bee explains how the Queen is formed, why bees swarm, how the hive is built and, how and why bees and flowers developed such an intimate relationship, the amazing way in which flowers attract bees and the importance of pollination.'The Honey Bee' is NOT just a superfluous overview of this incredible engineer, but reveals in superb detail the amazing story of these insects and explains why they play such an important role in the well-being of the planet generally and to the health and life of the plant world and ecosystems in particular.

              For the first time the true story of New Zealand's first successful aeroplane flights and the people behind them. Extensive research provides new understanding of historic events and corrects more than a hundred years of history with a startling account of what really happened in... 1911 and how Manurewa, the first aeroplane to fly, became 'lost'. Considered New Zealand's 'Wright brothers', Leo and Vivian Walsh were part of a small group of remarkable men and women pioneering motorised transport in the 1900's. The First is the compelling story of a generation including well-known Edwardians, George Henning, Reuben Dexter and the missing early years of international Art Deco designer, Keith Murray. The author does not neglect the careers of the Walsh sisters Veronica and Doreen with their connections to women aviators Jean Batten and Gladys Henning- Sandford, radio pioneer Aunt Daisy and Evelyn Purchas, likely the first New Zealand woman on active service to lose her life in World War One. The First addresses tobacco cultivation and manufacturing in the 1870s, the Victorian bicycle craze, the first motorcars, the Glenora Park flights and the upheaval of war then its aftermath when aeroplane flight would be experienced by ordinary New Zealanders. Terry Moyle's dedication to identifying and dating historic photographs and searching for never before seen images complement an authoritative text. As with his previous titles, Art Deco Airports and Art Deco New Zealand, masterly illustration and amazing maps by designers Contour Creative Studio instill the spirit of the age in this important history book.

              To Plea or Not to Plea: The Story of Rick Gates and the Mueller Investigation

              Daphne Barak goes behind the scenes of the Mueller report into Russian interference in the US Presidential election, revealing how one of the key witnesses was turned by the special counsel, and how the ordeal affected his life. On the morning the first indictments of the Mueller... investigation were handed down, Rick Gates had two choices: either stand trial for thirty-two counts of serious federal crimes, all of which concerned work with Paul Manafort, or take a plea deal and surrender himself to the special counsel. Having been abandoned by Manafort and forced to stand for his crimes alone, Gates took the deal. Then the real trouble began. As soon as Gates pled guilty, Barak writes, he became the property of the special counsel's office. He was forced to be 'on call' at all times, and he gave more than 300 hours of recorded testimony. He was forced to abandon his cancer-stricken wife in her time of need, and gave up valuable time with his children. But with the help of his friends and family, he came out the other side stronger, finally ready to tell his story for the first time.
