From her early childhood, when her inspirational mother would take her on trips along her beloved Ridgeway in a horse-drawn cart, Candida Lycett Green has retained a love of green lanes and tracks, of moving along at horse's pace and casting an eye on the beauty of England through the back door. Her insatiable appetite for exploring unknown territory has led her to travel all over the country by horse for weeks at a time, and often these journeys have come at important turning points in her life. Lyrical yet down-to-earth, framed by a recent 150-mile journey through Yorkshire and Northumberland with a friend, Over the Hills and Far Away dips back into past journeys by horse that also reflect her idyllic childhood in the bohemian Betjeman household, a charmed youth in the Swinging Sixties, a year-long honeymoon journey overland to India, early days at Private Eye, and the ups and downs of thirty-nine years of marriage and motherhood. Her story is made all the more poignant by her recent fight with breast cancer.

The 1952 shearing season had cut out leaving 21-year-old Graham Hardy at a loose end. Early aspirations by the dairy farmer's son to become a wool classer were fading with the realisation that, thanks to post-war training programs, there seemed to be more wool classers than sheep out in the shearing sheds of Queensland. Graham was looking at his options when an advertisement in a week-old copy of the Brisbane Courier Mail newspaper caught his eye. The Commonwealth Department of Territories was recruiting cadet patrol officers for service in Papua and New Guinea.Graham applied and, four months after arriving in the territory in October 1952, he found himself on a remote patrol post in the vast Papuan delta with nothing more than an eight-week introductory course behind him and a thirst for adventure ahead. Over the Hills and Far Away spans the years 1952 to 1975 and is Graham's personal hand-written memoir about work and life during a defining era of Australian and Papua New Guinea history. Over the Hills and Far Away is the journey of a young man who worked his way from a solitary cadet in Papua's delta backwaters to a Kiap in the mountainous highlands and arrival as deputy district commissioner in Port Moresby on the eve of Papua New Guinea's nationhood.

If Hogwarts were more like Woodstock, and Voldemort was your childhood sweetheart turned abusive ex-boyfriend... A new year in Helicon, and Nora Sparrow is determined that this one will be a drama-free. She’s intent on doing nothing but having fun, creating, and enjoying herself. Unfortunately, drama strikes right away with an explosion at the Winter Ball. The assumed perpetrator is a muse named Lute Thundercloud, although he claims he didn’t do it. Sawyer Snow believes Lute. In fact, Sawyer can’t stop thinking about Lute. He loves Nora, and he doesn’t want to hurt her, but he is torn—shaken by this new attraction. And before he can even quite come to grips with his feelings, he realizes that all the girls in Helicon have suddenly fallen madly in love with a skinny fourteen-year-old named Colin Oak—who also happens to be the same guy who accused Lute of causing the explosion. It’s becoming obvious that something’s not quite right in Helicon… A darker, soapier Harry Potter.

Harford Logan has spent a lifetime working and winning trials with his Border Collies but ask him what's so special about them and he's likely to look somewhere in the middle distance and eventually reply, "Well, now, that's hard to put into a few words." And that's why he's written this book - an uplifting tale of one man's love of life in the country, the characters he has met along the way and the dog to which he owes it all - the Border Collie. Harford's respect for his dogs shines through as we are introduced to some of his most remarkable collies and he explains what a true handler-dog relationship is all about. He shares his own personal approach to finding and recognising a great Border Collie and then becoming the trainer and handler which a dog of that quality deserves. But you'll find more than just tips and tactics on owning and training a dog in this book. From the first page you're drawn into a richly entertaining world where sheepdog trials, and the countryside they take place in, are the backdrop to some serious fun. Once you've read this book you'll see both Border Collies and the role of the shepherd in a whole new light.
