A fascinating account of the making of a film. A very raw account at that with all the risk dirt and detours. It was a joy to see that it was a story of forgiveness in a country that is described as a nation of widows.

Pascoe displays an antagonism towards government God Christians and the church that is most undesirable. It comes out in a number of the essays. As to God Christians and the church Pascoe at no point indicates that he has ever once sought to work with those whom cause him grief.

I'm willing to accept that my education about aboriginal Australians was very poor yet I am not inspired to learn from someone who is so expressive of his angst towards those who may be valuable allies.

Please less of the 'us' & 'them' and more clever ways of including everyone in the discussion.

Incredibly versatile synth. With this synth you can sample sounds sequence and record in tape mode. There's so much to discover with this easy to use synth and to boot you can use it as a midi controller via the USB cable. And it's all free to use at the library!

A business classic that has practical advice on how both to analyse data and think. Libraries themselves are a wonderful 8020 model.....of the 20 of the books that I care to read 80 of them are ordinarily accessible through a single library thence nearing 100 at all libraries.
