Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found # Movie Tie-In, Cheryl Strayed
2 Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found # Movie Tie-In
Cheryl Strayed UK Atlantic PBS 2014 1782394869 / 9781782394860 Soft cover New Book 
At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America - from the Mojave Desert, through California and Oregon, and into Washington state - and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise - a promise of piecing together a life that lay in ruins at her feet. About the Author Cheryl Strayed is the author of the critically acclaimed novel Torch, the huge New York Times- bestselling memoir Wild and the collection of essays Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Someone Who's Been There. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines and journals, including The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post Magazine, Allure and The Rumpus. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

Treasure! Coin and relic hunting has come of age. No longer is treasure hunting the realm of the get-rich-quick fringe and the bad reputation associated with the destruction of historic sites. Metal detectors are now recognised as sophisticated detection tools that can distinguish precious metals from surrounding soils and rubbish. This ensures minimum disturbance to the search area. This guide has been designed to enable you to identify your finds and put them into context within Australia's evolving history. We describe the specialist metal detectors which will help to detect valuable coins and jewellery among the junk strewn fields. We'll also show you how to identify prospective areas to coin and relic hunt and interpret the signs of previous human occupation. We describe the special techniques required to unearth your find. It is imperative that the target is not damaged while digging it out of the ground and the surrounding area is not scarred in the process. This is especially important when detecting in public parks and beaches. We also describe the specialist tools and electronic pin-pointing devices that will assist in both the park and beach. This guide covers: Man-made or natural targets, How metal detectors work, Detector operation technique, Specialised tools for coin & relic extraction, Choosing a treasure hunting detector, Where to treasure hunt, Research, Themes to stimulate your search, The law of finding, Identifying your finds, Displaying your finds, Treasure hunts & ethics,

Eat Pray Love: One Woman's Search for Everything [used book], Elizabeth Gilbert
8 Eat Pray Love: One Woman's Search for Everything [used book]
Elizabeth Gilbert UK Bloomsbury 2007 0747585660 / 9780747585664 Soft cover Good Book B-format 
It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.

Travel journalist Jennifer Cox loved her job but hated her love life. Were the two somehow related, she wondered? And if so could she not try to make it her job to meet Mr Right? In search of the man of her dreams, Jennifer begins to organise her global network, asking friends, business colleagues and friends of friends (all of them more affectionately known as Date Wranglers) to set her up with every interesting, unusual, special or simply gorgeous guy they can find in their little black books - as long as they fit Jennifer's Soul Mate Job Description. From the Love Professor in Sweden and the Skate Date in France to the Dead Date in Italy and the High Roller in Vegas; from the one-legged journalist in China to the Chief of the Harbour police in Sydney, Jennifer travels around the world: 80 men, in 22 countries, on 5 continents, in 8 months. But Jennifer has strict rules about dating, as well as a certain set of expectations, and as she struggles with doubts, excess baggage and date fatigue, she starts to wonder if it is actually really possible to seek and find Mr Right? And what would happen if she did track him down? Only time, travel and 80 dates would tell...

Before you are swept up in the morning rush madness as you wander to your local coffee haunt, Before your senses are ignited with the collective hum of conversation dancing in and out of coherence, the burrs of the coffee grinder, the whirring sounds of milk being stretched and the satisfactory clunk as your coffee hits the table, Before that first sip of your daily ritual, the humble coffee bean has been on an incredible journey from crop to cup, Take the journey with us through coffee's rich history and how it came to be centre stage in Victorian culture. About the Author Jonette George has prowled Melbourne's streets, laneways and rooftops to find out-of-the-way cafes, bars and restaurants for her new book, Flavours of Melbourne - and she has found some surprises along the way.

19 The Hollywood Survival Guide: For Aussie Actors
Kym Jackson Australia Kym Jackson 2012 098723160X / 9780987231604 Soft cover New Book 23.0 x 15.0 cm 
Actors so often have a feeling that they could be doing more for their career, but don't know where to begin. Asking others for advice is helpful, but there is so much to learn and unless the advice is coming from a working actor, it may not be completely accurate. The Hollywood Survival Guide is not only tailored for Aussie actors coming to or in Hollywood, but for actors anywhere who want to become "smart actors" and understand how each facet of the entertainment industry works, and how it affects you as the actor. The book doesn't only tell you "how it is done," it also explains "why it is done" so that you can form your own opinions on how to best tackle each of the hurdles you encounter in your career within the industry.
