Van Diemen's Women. Kavanagh, Snowden Van Diemen's Women. Kavanagh, Snowden

On 2 September 1845, the convict ship Tasmania left Kingstown Harbour for Van Diemen’s Land with 138 female convicts and their 35 children. On 3 December, the ship arrived into Hobart Town. While this book looks at the lives of all the women aboard, it focuses on two women in particular: Eliza Davis, who was transported from Wicklow Gaol for life for infanticide, having had her sentence commuted from death, and Margaret Butler, sentenced to seven years’ transportation for stealing potatoes in Carlow. Using original records, this study reveals the reality of transportation, together with the legacy left by these women in Tasmania and beyond, and shows that perhaps, for some, this Draconian punishment was, in fact, a life-saving measure.

Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave. Forman. Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave. Forman.

Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave traces the life of this famous desperado through his role in the Lincoln County War, the alleged killing by Sheriff Pat Garrett, Billy's escape, and his life for the next sixty-nine years. In 1948, an old man named William Henry Roberts was confronted with evidence that he was Billy the Kid. At first he denied his identity, but reluctantly admitted who he was. Based on taped interviews with Roberts, new evidence discovered in the 1990s, and sophisticated photo comparison technology by the FBI, the conclusion that Roberts was Billy the Kid gains support.

Vintage Radios. Tony Thompson. Vintage Radios. Tony Thompson.

Since the 1920's the radio set has been an important part of most people's lives. In the thirties and forties the wireless was an important piece of furniture and a potent symbol of status; beautifully made floor-standing and table-top sets in veneered wood and trendy bakelite became the focal points of living rooms up and down the land. After the war the emphasis began to change towards portability, and the change from valves to transistors in the 1960's changed the radio into a more useful but far less interesting object.

Clay Pigeon Shooting. Yardley. Clay Pigeon Shooting. Yardley.

Yardley has created a remarkable history of clay pigeon shooting. His work starts with the very first competitive shoots using live pigeons, and then it tracks the development of the glass ball target, the rise of the great trick shooters such as Annie Oakley, the birth of the Olympics, the history of the royal family and clay pigeons, and the use of clay pigeons by Second World War fighter pilots to hone their skills in knocking down moving targets. It's more than just a history of a sport from its very beginning to right up to the modern day. It's a tale of a civilization and how society has treated its best shooters. We see that in the late nineteenth century clay pigeon shooters were the most highly regarded sportsmen of all; then there were decades when the sport was ignored; and now, today, shooting stands on the cusp of a staggering new popularity. It's not just a good history; it's a great read. Includes profiles of Bogardus, Carver, Annie Oakley, and many of the early luminaries of live pigeon and target shooting.

From Cape to Kasserine. Boddington. From Cape to Kasserine. Boddington.

It was way back in 1987 that Craig Boddington published his first “Ten Years in Africa” book, and neither the author nor the publisher had any idea what they had started. Boddington had been in Kenya in 1977 just before it closed and had, by the time his first African hunting book came out, taken around a dozen safaris. Now, he is approaching his 100th safari to Africa—surely a record of some sort. From the Cape to Kasserine is Boddington’s fourth ten-year book chronicling his African hunting.
Since 1977 the always-alluring continent of Africa has gone through massive changes. While some hunting opportunities have disappeared, perhaps forever, it seems that Africa is like the phoenix that keeps on rising from the ashes. There are always new opportunities to attract the big-game hunter.
This time Boddington takes us as far north as he has ever hunted in Africa, almost in sight of Europe, as he seeks driven Barbary wild boar in Tunisia. He also tells us of elephants in Botswana, buffaloes in Mozambique, lions in Tanzania, and a huge cornucopia of antelopes in between. Included are hunts for giant eland in Cameroon as well as offbeat trips to Ghana, Burkina Faso, and Liberia, places not on everybody’s list of where to hunt in Africa. Not overlooking his favorite haunts, Boddington revisits Zambia and Zimbabwe seeking unusual species he’s not shot before, particular hunting areas he’s not seen before, or areas he’s not visited in twenty years. In this new book he chronicles his first-ever visits to Uganda, which had been closed to hunting for decades.
Namibia and South Africa are now the strong points in African hunting because of their sound conservation programs funded by sportsmen and women. These two countries have brought back a variety of game in numbers not seen in 150 years—even the entire traditional Big Five (lion, leopard, black rhino, buffalo, and elephant) can be hunted there once again. Several of Boddington’s hunts take place in these two countries.
Naysayers will continue to bemoan the demise of Africa, and some hunting in Africa is now definitely not what it used to be five decades ago. However, consider this: The number of species available for legal hunting in Africa today is higher than ever.
We care not to venture if another ten-year hunting book is in the future for either the author or the publisher, but that Africa in the next ten years will continue to provide great adventure and excellent hunting, there can be no doubt.

Land Rover Series III Specification Guide. Taylor. Land Rover Series III Specification Guide. Taylor.

With around 400 illustrations, this is the most wide-ranging book yet written on the Series III Land Rovers, and is certain to become the standard reference guide for restorers and enthusiasts.
The complete specification guide to Series III Land Rovers, produced from 1971 to 1985 covers:
Vehicle identification and specification changes
Options on standard models and special equipment
Conversions and Forward Control models
Overseas models and markets
Military and Lightweight models
The Series III Land Rovers enjoyed a long production run of nearly fifteen years, taking over from the Series IIA types in 1971. They overlapped with the new coil-sprung models in their last two years between 1983 and 1985, and were the last leaf-sprung Land Rovers. They stood at a crossroads in the marque's history because, in Stage 1 V8 form from 1979, they embraced the new technology of permanent four-wheel drive, which would become a Land Rover trademark.
Precise production figures are still in doubt, but were close on the half-million mark. That number embraced a huge variety of different specifications, and enthusiasts today often have difficulty in discovering what their vehicles would have been like when they were new. Many Series Ills have been modified in service over the years, which means that there are few completely original vehicles around to use as reference guides.
This book follows its predecessor, Land Rover Series II and IIA Specification Guide, in trying to establish exactly how its subject vehicles would have been when they were new. Compiled over a period of more than thirty years, the book draws on extensive reference material from Land Rover itself, and on the observations and knowledge of an army of enthusiasts. It will function as a comprehensive reference guide to the specifications of the various Series ill Land Rovers, and also to the dozens of options, items of special equipment and major conversions. In addition, it covers military versions of the civilian Series Ills, the military-only Lightweight or Half-Ton model, and the special models built for overseas markets and in overseas countries.

Triumph TR7: The Untold Story. Knowles. Triumph TR7: The Untold Story. Knowles.

By the mid 1970s, the two popular sports cars produced by the new British Leyland were showing their age. What the company needed was a smart, modern sports car. The TR7, designed to replace both the MGB and the Triumph TR6, was the result. Its wedge-shaped design was modern enough but much of the rest of the car was, for some, disappointingly conventional and press reaction was not universally warm. Initially available as a two-seat coupe, the car went on sale in Britain in 1974. David Knowles unravels the history of the car's design and production, and the chaos that was caused by British Leyland's notorious strikes and labour problems. He also delves deep into the competition history of the car. Including the later TR& drophead, and the V8 powered TR8, this book is the last word on the car that is probably more popular today than at any ti =me since it ceased production in 1981. AUTHOR: David Knowles is a civil engineer. He is the author of MG-The Untold Story and MG X Power SV both published by The Crowwood Press. He lives in Ruislip, Middlesex. SELLING POINTS: A ground-breaking book that reveals much about this fascinating car that has at any time since production ceased in 1981. 300 colour photos

Flyers Far Away: Australian Aircrews over Europe in World War II. Enright. Flyers Far Away: Australian Aircrews over Europe in World War II. Enright.

This book is about Australian aircrew in Europe during World War II and draws on extensive field research, including over two hundred interviews with survivors. The fact that the Australians were spread so widely across so many squadrons has contributed to substantial oversights, both in the official histories and in the literature on the field. Flyers Far Away redresses this imbalance and accords those largely forgotten Australian airmen a rightful place in the history of the European air war. Flyers Far Away describes how so many Australian airmen ended up in Western Europe fighting an Allied cause, in one of the bloodiest and most unforgiving campaigns of the Second World War. Using first-hand accounts from the surviving airmen, it traces their path from recruitment in Australia to operations over the Third Reich and Axis territories. For the first time, the exploits of all Australian aircrew, in Fighter, Bomber, Coastal and Tactical Air Force Commands are brought together in one volume.
