            Farmer Kane Brisco's tools for the physical and mental strains of life on the land. Taranaki farmer and podcaster Kane Brisco started his farmer support page, Farm Fit, to create awareness of the daily pressures on farmers in New Zealand. Kane says when you break down a farmer's ...day - the physical load, the mobility required and the long list of difficult decisions to make - the impact of farming on the body and mind is greatly underestimated. This book is about Kane's journey to address these struggles, and to explain how he's learnt become a better farmer by focusing on staying physically and mentally fit and healthy. It's also about what life on the land can teach the rest of us about resilience, acceptance and relieving stress and pressure.

            For years we've been told that the food system is destroying the planet. That there are too many cows and tractors, too much fertiliser, too much waste, and that farmers and food manufacturers are polluting our atmosphere. But we've also been told that food can help save us from ...the worst of global warming. How can it be both destroyer and saviour? In 2018, Nicola Harvey and her husband, Pat, left their careers and inner-city Sydney life to farm cattle in rural New Zealand. They thought it would be exciting, even relaxing, but soon found themselves in the middle of heated arguments and deep divisions about food, farming, and climate change. In this profoundly personal story, Harvey takes readers into the heart of the industrialised global food system to share what life on the land is like when you're a new farmer just trying to survive - and change the status quo. At odds with her family, and struggling to find a place within her new community, Nicola is at first outraged at the lack of action to curb global warming. When she realises, though, that we're all being sold a false fix, she begins to transform the farm into a site of activism. In the kitchen and on the land, Nicola finds hope and a path towards a cooler future.

            From the moment the first machine gun rang out over the Western Front, one thing was clear- mankind's military technology had wildly surpassed its medical capabilities. The war's new weaponry, from tanks to shrapnel, enabled slaughter on an industrial scale, and given the nature ...of trench warfare, thousands of soldiers sustained facial injuries. Medical advances meant that more survived their wounds than ever before, yet disfigured soldiers did not receive the hero's welcome they deserved. In The Facemaker, award-winning historian Lindsey Fitzharris tells the astonishing story of the pioneering plastic surgeon Harold Gillies, who dedicated himself to restoring the faces - and the identities - of a brutalized generation. Gillies, a Cambridge-educated New Zealander, became interested in the nascent field of plastic surgery after encountering the human wreckage on the front. Returning to Britain, he established one of the world's first hospitals dedicated entirely to facial reconstruction in Sidcup, south-east England. There, Gillies assembled a unique group of doctors, nurses and artists whose task was to recreate what had been torn apart. At a time when losing a limb made a soldier a hero, but losing a face made him a monster to a society largely intolerant of disfigurement, Gillies restored not just the faces of the wounded but also their spirits. Meticulously researched and grippingly told, The Facemaker places Gillies's ingenious surgical innovations alongside the poignant stories of soldiers whose lives were wrecked and repaired. The result is a vivid account of how medicine and art can merge, and of what courage and imagination can accomplish in the presence of relentless horror.
