Hillary's Antarctica : adventure, exploration and establishing Scott Base by Nigel Watson( )

6 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sior Edmund Hillary's exploits in Antarctica include the riveting story of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition and the establishment of Scott Base. Written by Nigel Watson of the Antarctic Heritage Trust, and illustrated with Jane Ussher's stunning photographs, plus historic images and never-before-seen ephemera and diary entries, this is the first book that fully documents and celebrates Ed Hillary's contribution to Antarctic history. Hillary and the New Zealand team were supposed to be a support act to the British Commonwealth Antarctic crossing party. By heading on to the South Pole and reaching it before the crossing party, Hillary exceeded the brief. His actions created tensions, unleashed a media storm and denied the British an historic first overland to the South Pole since Captain Scott. Hillary even had the audacity to achieve the feat with three farm tractors. In doing so, Sir Edmund Hillary added another fascinating chapter to the exploration annals of Antarctica and he, and his expedition team, laid the foundations for New Zealand's continuous, and increasingly important, presence in Antarctica

A journey to New Zealand's most fascinating, wild and isolated islands. Following on from their non-fiction book-of-the-year winning Coast, this is the next epic journey from writer Bruce Ansley and photographer Jane Ussher. New Zealand is surrounded by hundreds of islands, mainly remnants of a larger land mass now beneath the sea. Some are idyllic retreats; others have poignant histories of castaways, prisons and leper colonies. Some have become sanctuaries, safe from destructive predators; some are farmed by fifth and sixth generations of the same family; others are isolated outposts, barely sustaining life at all; while some are hidden where you'd least expect

Body talk : the material and discursive regulation of sexuality, madness, and reproduction by Jane Ussher( )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychology has traditionally examined human experience from a realist perspective, focusing on observable 'facts'. This is especially so in areas of psychology which focus on the body, such as sexuality, madness or reproduction.
