              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.

              "I started My New Life with a wild leap of faith and a screw driver in my back pocket. Turns out I needed a power tool arsenal... Nancy Myers is having a hard time. She's broken-hearted, homeless and unemployed. And she's just turned forty. But Nancy has a secret weapon. Desperat...ion. Relying solely on her finely-honed ability to make stuff up as she goes along and the battery life of her cordless drill, she's determined to make a fresh start (one that on no account features men of the falling-in-love-with variety). After purchasing a block of land at the foot of the Southern Alps in New Zealand, Nancy attempts to settle into rural life. She finds the vista of the mountains healing. She also finds a tall, dark and gumbooted stranger (who proves to be therapeutic in other ways). But when she discovers her precious view is about to be taken away, Nancy faces a hard choice. Should she play saboteur to protect her own happiness, even if it means losing the man who just might possibly be the key to it? Maybe her fresh start is actually a false start. Or maybe she's learning a thing or two about how to be a kick-arse, self-reliant woman"--Back cover.
