    Much has been written about explorer Ernest Shackleton’s three

    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
    during 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 the 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 to rescue the other
    members of the lifeboat party.

    The UniSmart Guide to Life, University
    & Everything
    The ultimate guide for teens and young adults navigating the
    change between school and university, from living at home to
    surviving in the university jungle.
    Meet Bruce... he’s huge and very shy. A hulk of a kiwi lad from the farm.
    His parents have enrolled him at a university in the UK to “find himself”.
    He’s nervous as all hell. What if no one likes him? What if no one else plays
    rugby? What if he is the only virgin on campus? Now meet Priscilla. She’s
    English, a tiny dot of a thing, creative and clever. Her bickering parents
    want her to leave home and get a degree in mechanical engineering.
    She’s nervous as all hell. What if she feels homesick? What if she hates
    her course?
    SAY SOMETHING! is a witty, straight-talking guide for any young person
    facing the big step into tertiary education, whether they are moving
    countries to study, leaving home or staying put. Readers follow Bruce
    and Priscilla’s experience through the ups and downs of life in university
    residence, in the lecture theatre, on campus and in a whole new social
    solar system.
    Nothing is taboo and every topic is relevant in this universal guide
    to life, uni and everything.

    See What I Can See: NZ Photography for the Young & Curious
    ISBN: 9781869408435
    Title: See What I Can See: NZ Photography for the Young & Curious

    "Photography was invented in France in 1839 - the year before the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in New Zealand. Within a few years, cameras were charting the life and times of people at this end of the planet. See What I Can See is a celebration of that remarkable, well-travelled, ever-changing invention - the camera - the New Zealand that it captured, and the artists who wielded it. 'See What I Can See' is a book about darkness and light, about careful planning and doing things on the spur of the moment, about the quickness of digital photography and the slowness of old technology. It's a woman driving a tractor and a kid in a Colgate tube, a rock at Ngauruhoe and a Wahine survivor on a cart, it's surfies and selfies and cabbages the size of kings. The book also presents a picture of a country - Aotearoa New Zealand - living its life, dreaming its dreams and taking care of its day-to-day business"--Publisher information.

    Title: Tohora: The Southern Right Whale
    Author: BARRAUD NED

    Once, the mighty tohora, or southern right whale, was a common sight in winter off the coast of Aotearoa. But it proved to be an easy target for the 19th-century whalers, and was soon driven to the edge of extinction. In the 20th century, however, it became a protected species, and once commercial whaling was virtually stopped, the southern right whale made a comeback. Ned Barraud recounts this moving story in this beautifully illustrated book, a heartening and optimistic tale for every New Zealand child.
