A father and son climb Mount Kilimanjaro. On the journey to the roof of Africa they traverse the treacherous terrain of fatherhood, divorce, dark secrets and old grudges, and forge an authentic adult relationship. The high-altitude trek takes them through some of the weirdest landscapes on the planet, and the final all-night climb to the frozen summit tests their endurance. On the way to the top father and son explore how our stories about ourselves can imprison us in the past, and the importance of letting go. The mountain too has a story to tell, a story about Climate Change and the future of humankind - a future etched all too clearly on Kilimanjaro’s retreating glaciers.

Students in Elon University’s first adventure-based learning course to Tanzania hiked to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro - millennial style. Then they wrote a book about it. The 22 upper-level students in the Core Capstone course authored this book in order to share what they learned from their adventure, and provide helpful information for those who follow in their footsteps. Most travel adventure books about Kilimanjaro are written by older adults, and tend to focus on the individual's “peak experience." Those reading Kilimanjaro, Millennial Style will quickly grasp the different ways young adults perceive their world, how their relationships are deepened, where they find adventure, and what it means to have an authentic experience together. As one of the authors wrote, "I would never want to hike to the top of Kilimanjaro again. Not because it wasn't the most amazing experience I have ever had, but because it wouldn't be with the people that made my experience so extraordinary."

Sambach brings together an ethnograhic study of a school and community in East Africa. Stambach focuses on the role school plays in the development of the children's identity and relationships to their parents and community, as well as in the development of the region. At issue here are the competing influences of Western modernity and the cultural traditions of East Africa-ideas about gender roles, sexuality, identity, and family and communal obligations are all at stake. Stambach looks at the controversial practice of female circumcision in the context of school and community teachings about girls' bodies and examines cultural signifiers like music, clothing and food to discuss the tensions in the region.

In Serengeti Songs Chris McCully plays poet-guide on a safari through East Africa’s abundant wild landscape. Dik-dik, topi, elephant and impala roam these pages, darting between the acacia’s ‘burnt star-dome’ and the baobab’s myth-rich shade. The poems conjure a Serengeti both glorious and savage, its light ‘stained with blood’, its marshlands steeped in ‘murderous silence’. But McCully’s writing is formally playful and diverse, the collection a safari in itself; accompanying photographs and taxonomic endnotes riff on the guidebook form. The poems also play with gazes: they inspect not only wildlife but also the human need to inspect. Wealthy interlopers demand to see the lions ‘do what they do on TV’, yet ‘know nothing of how the river-pool devours starlight’. The collection’s post-colonial alertness, however, does not compromise the core of wonder hinted at by its title: McCully’s songs are awe-struck celebrations of a unique and delicate landscape. They are, too, protest songs, swansongs: they bear witness, even at their most rhapsodic, to the threat of extinction resulting from human zeal. ‘How many dawns have the great herds run the rim of the world?’ he asks. These poems engage with the Serengeti’s complex symbolism, an emblem both of bounty and scarcity, wonder and loss.

Bad things happen to all people but we often ask why good people suffer and the wicked prosper. This is a very complex subject to which Ady tries to give some clarity. In this book “Through Trials To Triumph” he discusses the issue from a Biblical perspective and helps the reader to understand why trials happen to all of us. This book shows that life is a journey full of ups and downs. What we often perceive as a bad situation can be an opportunity for change and growth, but the key is "attitude and faith." How people deal with life’s trials depends on what attitude they have. God does not cause bad things to happen to us, but he allows them in our lives, and stands ready to help us through difficult times.

New Zealand's first elected woman prime minister; nine years in power through Afghanistan and Iraq, the 'Corngate' and 'Paintergate' affairs, the foreshore and seabed turmoil; head of the UN Development Program and ranked among the most powerful women in the world. Helen Clark's public life is well known. But what about the inside stories? During 2012-2013, documentary-makers Claudia Pond Eyley and Dan Salmon interviewed a host of participants about the life of Helen Clark: Clark herself and her family, political friends and enemies, mentors and staffers, journalists and lobbyists. The resulting transcripts from those interviews, woven together here into a compelling narrative, offer a brilliantly multi-faceted, inside account of Helen Clark's life and career. From her father George Clark to friend Cath Tizard, Richard Prebble to Jim Anderton, Winston Peters to Don Brash, Jacinda Ardern to John Key, Helen Clark and her contemporaries bring to life the tumultuous life and times of one of our most important political leaders. Through the words of the players themselves, sometimes raw, sometimes angry, we find ourselves taken inside the major political developments of the last fifty years. This is a frank, revealing account of Helen Clark and her world
