Running into Africa

by Stephanie Hodge

It's a roller coaster ride of a travelogue. There is an inverse relationship between angst and diversion-seeking behavior which takes the reader through packs of cigarettes and bottles of good South African cheap wine, across crocodile infested waters, on 33 mile runs with, boulders and baboons, and into very precarious emotional and social situations from which Hodge manages to extricate herself and remain unscathed. At 26, Hodge is weary, wondering, homesick and puzzled about love. And she really want to find out how to get into the Okavango delta for good! The raw stream of thoughts, events and feelings, are like a rope, magnified down to the fiber level. The personal account of Botswana highlights the different strands of her journey and how they are woven together: the cycles of high...

Arnhem Land's Children

by Graham Wilson

It was hot. A sudden stillness was in the late afternoon air. The waterhole's surface shone with unnatural smoothness. Fresh pig tracks at it's edge told of pigs just gone. Two bubbles popped up, their spreading ripples fracturing the tree and sky reflections; just decaying vegetation, said my mind. I should have known better, I should have smelt crocodile!!What is it about the Northern Territory that fascinates?I have only to mention it’s name in conversation and people stop and turn to listen.Why, for 190 years, has it drawn people from all over to come, stay longer than they imagined and, often, never leave?This book is a memoir of a family's life in a remote aboriginal community, in Australia's Northern Territory, something the equivalent of remote Canada or Alaska, where few people ...
