Kokoda by Peter FitzSimons( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Kododa was a defining battle for Australia, where a small force of young, ill-equiped Australians engaged with a highly experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow, precarious jungle track. Again and again, the outnumbered Australians risked everything to stop the Japanese advancing towards mainland Australia. More Australians died in the months of fighting in Papua, than in any other campaign of WWII
Almost French by Sarah Turnbull( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
This isn't like me. I'm not the sort of girl who crosses continents to meet up with a man she hardly knows. Paris hadn't even been part of my travel plan .' After backpacking her way around Europe journalist Sarah Turnbull is ready to embark on one last adventure before heading home to Sydney. A chance meeting with a charming Frenchman in Bucharest changes her travel plans forever. Acting on impulse, she agrees to visit Fredric in Paris for a week. Put a very French Frenchman together with a strong-willed Australian girl and the result is some spectacular - and often hilarious - cultural clashes. Language is a minefield of misunderstanding and the simple act of buying a baguette is fraught with social danger. But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from the sophisticated cafes and haute couture fashion houses to the picture postcard French countryside, little by little Sarah falls under its spell: passionate, mysterious, infuriating, and charged with that French specialty - seduction. And it becomes her home. Almost French is the story of an adventurous heart, a maddening city - and love

Relaxation and meditation for children by Gill Ross( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
The short term and long term benefits of a regular deep relaxation practice cannot be overestimated. It is undoubtedly one of the most precious gifts you can offer yourself and your child. On learning to relax, children sleep better, play better, concentrate better and are in all manner of ways happier and more delightful to be with. On this audio, Gillian, with the help of relaxing music, lovingly guides young listeners into an experience of physical calmness and deep inner peace using body and breath awareness and visualizations. There are two shorter practices particularly suitable for ages 4-9 years and a half hour practice designed for older children but all three practices can be enjoyed by young people of all ages. Guided relaxations of this kind can deepen and awaken spirtual experiences but Gillian deliberatly avoids any reference to specific religious beliefs

2 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
In True History of the Kelly Gang, the legendary Ned Kelly speaks for himself, scribbling his narrative on errant scraps of paper in semiliterate but magically descriptive prose as he flees from the police. To his pursuers, Kelly is nothing but a monstrous criminal, a thief and a murderer. To his own people, the lowly class of ordinary Australians, the bushranger is a hero, defying the authority of the English to direct their lives. Indentured by his bootlegger mother to a famous horse thief (who was also her lover), Ned saw his first prison cell at 15 and by the age of 26 had become the most wanted man in the wild colony of Victoria, taking over whole towns and defying the law until he was finally captured and hanged. Here is a classic outlaw tale, made alive by the skill of a great novelist
