The Driver by Alice Mabin documents the reality of the daily grind for 110 different trucking companies and drivers with stunning images featuring every state and territory in Australia and New Zealand. This is the never before-seen real life tale of the captivating lives of truck drivers. “It was important to me that the stalwart cooperation of the truckies, their families, and the trucking companies were respected and represented fully. This is why it was so vital to feature each state and territory across Australia and New Zealand,” asserted the author, Alice Mabin. “I absorbed so much on this legendary journey. I learned how to drive a road train, change tyres, fix fuel leaks, tie down freight, and to cook on the side of the road”. Al, who also has a drone license spent time with the Heart of Australia truck and documented its travels throughout outback Queensland which features in the book. 228 pages.

The Drover: Photographic record of the Brinkworth Cattle Drove, Alice Mabin
2 The Drover: Photographic record of the Brinkworth Cattle Drove
Alice Mabin Australia Alice Mabin 2014 0646918583 / 9780646918587 Hardcover New Book 34.0 x 28.8 x 2.0 cm Alice Mabin 
The Drover by Alice Mabin - droving captured through the lens of a camera. The red dust swirls around you, filling your lungs and coating your face, the cattle low as they march onwards, you crack a cold one at the end of a long hot day. The path of a drover is a long and difficult one. Droving is woven in the fabric of Australian history, but droving cattle long distances is a rare event today. Now you can view the epic Brinkworth drove, as captured through the lens of photographer Al Mabin in her new book The Drover. During 2013's severe drought, South Australian farmer Tom Brinkworth purchased 18,000 cattle from AACo properties. The $8 million transaction was the largest single purchase in the history of Elders Livestock. Having purchased the cattle, the next question was how to get them home to Brinkworth's 35,000 hectare property Uardry Station near Hay, New South Wales. Doing the sums, the cost of trucking the cattle was roughly the same as walking them down. The journey started in June 2013, covering 2000km and crossing two states, as the cattle were walked south 'On the Long Paddock'. Mabin, who is building a reputation for her ability to capture spectacular photos of the Australian outback, tracked down the phone number of head drover Bill Little and asked if she could take photos of the drove one weekend. She found herself thrown on a horse and joining the drove. Heading home and scrolling through the photos, she realised she was missing the cattle and yearning for the drove. She decided to return and photograph all nine mobs. The result is the stunning coffee table book The Drover, going to the heart of droving, the people, and most importantly - the cattle. This book is sure to appeal to anyone who has ever fallen in love with the outback, and those who inhabit it. 196 pages.

Changi Photographer: George Aspinall's Record of Captivity [used book][out of print], George Aspinall and Tim Bowden
3 Changi Photographer: George Aspinall's Record of Captivity [used book][out of print]
George Aspinall and Tim Bowden Australia Times Editions 1991 9812042407 / 9789812042408 Soft cover Good Book 22.0 x 21.0 x 1.0 
Even before he became a prisoner-of-war of the Japanese in Singapore in 1942, George Aspinall was nicknamed 'Changi' Aspinall by his 2/30th Battalion mates. At lights-out time in Birdwood Camp, George was invariably 'down at Changi Village' helping to process photographs he and his friends had taken of their new and exotic tropical surroundings. After captivity that hobby became a private obsession that saw George not only taking secret photographs in the Changi area, but up on the appalling Thai/Burma Railway. He not only took photographs at great personal risk, but actually processed them on the spot, using chemicals smuggled in medicine bottles from Singapore. The engenuity and resourcefulness of this teenage Australian private soldier have resulted in a unique visual diary of captivity.

Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen, was the top ace of the First World War, with eighty confirmed victories. He is also one of the most famous fighter pilots of all time.

In May 1915 he joined the flying service, initially as an observer then as a pilot, flying two-seaters. In August 1916, ace fighter pilot Oswald Boelcke recruited von Richthofen into a fighter squadron he was forming. He would later take command of Jasta 11, and then of Jagdgeschwader 1, the famous 'Flying Circus'. Manfred von Richthofen would be shot down and killed on 21 April 1918. Using period images with captions taken from von Richthofen's 1917 autobiography, Der Rote Kampfflieger, this book will illustrate his story

The Lost Diggers: Fully Revised and Expanded Edition, Ross Coulthart
6 The Lost Diggers: Fully Revised and Expanded Edition
Ross Coulthart Australia Harper Collins 2016 1460752082 / 9781460752081 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 27.2 x 22.2 x 2.6 cm 
'It's a treasure trove. It's previously unknown, candid images of our troops just out of the line. Men with the fear and experiences of battle written on their faces.' General Sir Peter Cosgrove Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart, joint winner of the Prime Minister's Prize for History 2015, brings together stunning images of Western Front diggers and the amazing stories behind them. This fully revised and expanded edition offers a wealth of fresh information including more soldiers newly identified with the aid of their families. A trove of portraits taken in the tiny French town of Vignacourt just behind the front lines was found a century later in an ancient metal chest in a French farmhouse. The collection of glass plates has been hailed as one of the most important First World War discoveries ever made. Haunting images show diggers enjoying a brief respite from the horror of the trenches: having their portraits taken for a lark, for a keepsake or to send to loved ones. For all too many, this would be their only memorial, and to gaze into the eyes of these men is to meet a lost generation. 'These stunning black and white photographs stand as mute, yet eloquent, witness to the courage of soldiers and the horror of war ... Remarkably informative, beautifully illustrated and thoroughly researched ...' - Ross Fitzgerald, Sydney Morning Herald
