When nuns wore soldiers trousers by Pat Studdy-Clift( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
During the murderous Japanese campaign in New Guinea missionaries of all denominations were killed and their flocks dispersed. This is the story of a small group of German Catholic Sisters of the Divine Word Mission at Marienberg on the north coast, near the lower Sepik. This is a true story drawn mostly from Sr. Vinciana's diary, in which she captures her own and the other four Sisters' harrowing ascent through rugged jungle forests, skirting steep escarpments, clawing their way up mountains of rock, negotiating with antagonistic natives coupled with the constant ducking and weaving to avoid Japanese spotter planes
A long ride back : my successful return to triathlon through a network of great friends by Steven Crenfeldt( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
If you pick up this book hoping to read an extraordinary story about a really awesome, talented athlete, who had major obstacles to overcome; did so and came back to the top level of their chosen sport, then sorry, but you might be a little disappointed! Maybe try a book about multiple Tour De France winner and cancer survivor, Lance Armstrong; AFL superstar James Hird; paraplegic athlete John Maclean; or even All Black legend Jonah Lomu, because I am nothing like those people. This book is about an average guy, who participated in Ironman and Half Ironman Triathlons, simply because I could. No podium finishes, just pleased to make it across the finish line. This is the story of how I got back doing the sport that I love, after a serious bike accident. It is about how an event can change your life and how your network of friends surround you and give you the greatest chance of success, more than you would ever be able to achieve on your own

Arthur's war by Arthur Bancroft( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
In November 1940, Arthur Bancroft kissed his sweetheart, Mirla, goodbye and signed up with the Royal Australian Navy to go to war. He was nineteen years old. Arthur's War is the extraordinary story of his ordeal, and his survival. Arthur made a habit of cheating death - on the ill-fated HMAS Perth, which was sunk during the Battle of the Sunda Strait; as a prisoner of war on the notorious Burma-Thailand Railway, where it is said a man died for every sleeper laid; and miraculously surviving a second shipwreck that left him lost at sea, clinging to debris, for six days. While a POW he risked his life to keep a secret diary written on paper scraps with stolen pencils recording the agony and comradeship of life on the railway, which has never before been published. Against all odds Arthur made it back to Australia and to Mirla, who never lost hope for his eventual return all those years he was lost at war. His story is a story for all Australians: a captivating saga of courage, mateship, survival - and love
