As I was about to make my Test debut Shane Warne said to me: ‘Huss, you’re good enough to be here, you don’t have to prove anything to any of us. Just go and play your way and you can’t fail, mate.’ At the end of Michael Hussey’s tenth summer in first-class cricket – at age 30 – he was finally in the Test team. And almost everything in his first six matches had gone his way: Australia had won two series, and Hussey had already scored three hundreds. For so long his dream had been to play for Australia, but once there, he realised it was only the beginning and that there would be many more milestones to achieve. Michael Hussey is one of the most-loved Australian cricketers to have worn the baggy green. Underneath the Southern Cross details his journey from his childhood to the highs and lows of an extraordinary international cricket career playing alongside many of Australia’s star players. This is the personal account of a man whose hard work was rewarded with accolades at the highest level of international cricket. It will resonate with cricket lovers worldwide.

The special work to which I had been appointed at Fair View was the school work; although my instructions given by Superintendent Roberts on the eve of my departure for Africa gave full liberty to evangelize as well as to teach. My manual read something like this: "Do not be satisfied to be merely a school teacher. Be an evangelist. Go out to the kraals, preaching as you go. Make the salvation of souls your one and only business." -from "Chapter XIII: My School" The missionary work of Westerners in Africa is long and storied-here's another tale of the long-term attempts to convert a continent. Privately published, this is one woman's account of her Christian work in Zulu country, from her childhood-she was born in 1863-on farms in Iowa and Kansas, where she had a youthful brush with death that led to her conversion to an active Christianity, to her return home after long years doing the Lord's work. The time in between is fraught with culture shock: her difficulties in learning the Zulu language, her disdain for Zulu tradition and mythology, even a particular scorn for the food she found unpalatable. Stolid and unbending, this is a curious document of a less enlightened time, a firsthand look at the mindset of a bygone time.
The vast, forbidding Australian Outback… the grandeur of Ayers Rock… legendary Alice Springs… the Great Barrier Reef… the primal beauty of Cape Tribulation… Two women, from different continents, with different values, collide with spectacular results… UNDER THE SOUTHERN CROSS. American Lee Paynter has built her Small travel agency into an international tour company. Brash, confident, openly lesbian, her great love is her business. Women? They’re to enjoy and let go. Alexandra Findlay is pursuing a career in Australian tourism with quiet focus and determination, convinced that her career is the best she can hope for in her arid, closeted emotional existence. Now Alex has been assigned to accompany Lee on the American woman’s visit Down Under, to win Lee’s company over to Australian tourism. Suddenly Alex’s quiet life explodes… And Lee is challenged by a woman unlike any she has ever known.

During World War II, the U.S. Navy took over 35 refrigerated cargo ships from civilian importers to augment the supply fleet, including the United Fruit Company's S.S. Ulna. Renamed the U.S.S. Octans, the ship became part of the Seventh Fleet Service Force, carrying food and supplies as General Douglas MacArthur leapfrogged from his base in Australia to the Philippines. Petty Officer Kenneth G. Oliver here chronicles the ship's service during World War II, from the dangerous journeys to the Pacific Fleet bases through the shipboard activities of the crew to her decommissioning.
Under the Southern Cross, the eighth book in the Brothers Series and the fourth in the Shamrocks Saga, continues the story begun in Shamrocks in the Heather with the adventures of the rapidly maturing younger members of the Quigley clan. World War II is now in full swing and the Quigley cousins (by whatever name theyre known) volunteer for duty in the armed forces: Andrew, Finn and Doug in the RAF, Dennis in the Royal Navy and Geordie in the Army. Roarke, trapped in Australia by the outbreak of war, joins the coastwatchers in the Solomon Islands. This job, vital to the war effort and extremely dangerous, keep Martin, Anne and the twins on tenterhooks. Whether due to old age or the toll taken by the stress of war, the family suffers many deaths. The younger generation suffers greatly as well as they perform their various stints in the military. In the meantime, the demon inhabiting the soul of Adolph Hitler is beginning to believe the Nazis are no longer going to win the war. He takes desperate and sometimes foolish measures to try to rectify the deteriorating situation. Lucifer, ever practical, decides to hedge his bet by looking at Stalin as a new would-be ally in his war to establish the Rule of Chaos. The Spear of Destiny will play a role in the outcome of the war and many forces are determined to gain control of the mystical weapon. What no one counts on is the interference of the Quigley twins. Dora and Dosia are set on reclaiming the Spear for its original owner. While a vicious war turns London into matchsticks and mainland Europe into hell-on-earth, a semi-normal life goes on. People, Quigleys included, marry and have children. Their traveling is curtailed by shortages of fuel; their gatherings are more subdued with less food and fewer gifts but a semblance of normalcy is stubbornly adhered to. So, the battle between good and evil goes on. On one side is the Prince of Hell and his faithful (?) Lieutenant Beelzebub. Or is he faithful? Hes beginning to develop
