Roberts Bird Guide (2nd Edition) ( Copy )
ONLY AVAILABLE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Authors: Hugh Chittenden, Greg Davies, and Ingrid Weiersbye

The Roberts Bird Guide (2nd Edition) has gone to great trouble to concentrate on, and illustrate, difficult-to-identify species and family groups such as raptors, warblers, cisticolas, and waders. Special attention has been given to make sure there is far greater coverage of male-female differences and there are also many more juvenile illustrations. Unlike all previously published southern African bird guides, this new edition will be scattered with informative photographs that are incorporated into the text pages and each plate illustration is augmented with an introduction. Apart from the approximately 240 plate spreads, the guide also has 12 photographic and illustrated double spreads that show head enlargements and other details. Plates are annotated far more definitively than other guides – highlighting key identification features, especially for difficult-to-identify species. Plates are richly illustrated with vignettes, which will make any birding experience more informative.

Victor: My Reis Afrikaans
Een Wêreldbeker, ’n reeks-oorwinning oor die Britse en Ierse Leeus, twee Drienasies-titels, drie Super Rugby-trofeë en drie Curriebekers… Dit is een man se buitengewone prestasies in ’n loopbaan wat oor 16 ongelooflike jare gestrek het. Sy naam is Victor Matfield, en hy is ’n internasionale en Suid-Afrikaanse sportlegende. Jy wíl sy storie lees…

Vanaf sy grootwordjare toe hy ’n skaam, sport-mal seuntjie in Pietersburg was totdat hy die kruin van sy sukses in sy rugbyloopbaan bereik het, het Victor as ’n professionele sportman op die harde manier geleer van die plesier wat die lewe bied sowel as die pynlike druk wat daarmee saam gaan. In hierdie outobiografie waarna daar met groot afwagting uitgesien is, vertel hy openhartig van sy verhoudings met sy afrigters, insluitend Heyneke Meyer, Jake White en Peter de Villiers, die sterk bande wat hy met sy spanmaats gesmee het by die Bulle en in die nasionale span, en sy diepgaande liefde en respek vir die Springbok-trui. Hy bespreek die strydige kwessies wat die Suid-Afrikaanse rugbytoneel geteister het in die tydgleuf waarbinne sy loopbaan geval het, die opgang in Blou Bul-rugby en hul tekortkominge ten opsigte van topvorm-kondisie tydens sy laaste rugbyseisoen, die Bokke se kontroversiële kwarteindstryd wat die einde van hul mededinging om die Rugbywêreldbeker in 2011 beteken het, sy uittrede uit rugby en veel, veel meer.

Victor: My Reis is ongetwyfeld die een boek wat elke rugbyliefhebber sál wil lees.

In Black and White - The Jake White Story
In Black and White traces the life story of Springbok rugby coach Jake White, right up to and including the 2007 Rugby World Cup. The first man to coach the Springboks for four successive seasons, White's rise to the top job in SA Rugby is a journey of intense determination to succeed against all odds: a troubled childhood, coming to terms with the fact that he would never wear a provincial or Springbok blazer, starting out as a school coach, to his eventual elevation to arguably the toughest job in world sport.

White takes readers into rugby's inner sanctum, where politicking and hidden agendas sometimes supersede the best interests of the sport and relates the incredible highs and desperate lows of being part of the Springbok set-up. Riveting, controversial, sometimes amusing and often unbelievable, White's story will both absorb and astound.

The Bearded Dragon Manual
The Bearded Dragon Manual
The Bearded Dragon Manual provides the essential information all devoted bearded dragon owners need to meet the demands of these beautiful, naturally tame reptiles. Since reptiles are cold-blooded creatures, most humans don't instinctively understand their requirements the way they understand the needs of a cat or dog. Herp expert Philippe de Vosjoli and his team of veterinarians and authors seek to make keepers confident in their ability to properly care for their bearded dragons through this most informative book. A key component of caring for bearded dragons, according to the authors, is recognizing that their needs change as they develop. De Vosjoli states in the introduction to the book, "Looking at the life stages of bearded dragons also made [the authors] aware that, like humans, they undergo changes in growth and behavior, which may require the dedicated owner to make adjustments in husbandry (and general care) to meet the needs of each lifestyle." The Bearded Dragon Manual is the first book to present this information that is so critical to the proper maintenance of these very popular reptiles.

A Minute to Midnight Paperback David Baldacci
A Minute to Midnight
FBI Agent Atlee Pine's life was never the same after her twin sister Mercy was kidnapped--and likely killed--thirty years ago. After a lifetime of torturous uncertainty, Atlee's unresolved anger finally gets the better of her on the job, and she finds she has to deal with the demons of her past if she wants to remain with the FBI.

Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum head back to Atlee's rural hometown in Georgia to see what they can uncover about the traumatic night Mercy was taken and Pine was almost killed. But soon after Atlee begins her investigation, a local woman is found ritualistically murdered, her face covered with a wedding veil--and the first killing is quickly followed by a second bizarre murder.

Atlee is determined to continue her search for answers, but now she must also set her sights on finding a potential serial killer before another victim is claimed. But in a small town full of secrets--some of which could answer the questions that have plagued Atlee her entire life--digging deeper into the past could be more dangerous than she realizes . . .
