They rescued five horses from an unknown fate. They sold everything they had. With daring inspiration, Jackie and Noel trained the lost and confused horses, and forced their own unfit bodies to meld into one team. Life became horses, trail, endurance, and camping: all seven reliant on one another as they trekked along part of Australia's majestic Bicentennial National Trail. What started as a dream adventure turned out to be more than they had ever imagined. The beauty of the trail didn't lessen its dangers; with minimal support and all their worldly possessions on horseback, Jackie and Noel made mistakes and with humour learned the hard way. They were amateur horse-handlers, tackling an epic challenge, but they created something special, unique, and incredibly endearing. Fears were faced, healed, and conquered. Bonds were forged. But did the team of seven that started together, finish together? Saddle up and take a ride along life's natural trail of trauma, fear, pain, and loyalty.

Don’t let your mathematical skills fail you! In Engineering, Construction, and Science examinations, marks are often lost through carelessness or from not properly understanding the mathematics involved. When there are only a few marks on offer for a part of a question, there may be full marks for a right answer and none for a wrong one, regardless of the thought that went into the answer. If you want to avoid losing these marks by improving the clarity both of your mathematical work and your mathematical understanding, then Essential Maths for Engineering and Construction is the book for you.We all make mistakes; who doesn’t? But mistakes can be avoided when we understand why we make them. Taking mistakes commonly made by undergraduate students as its entry point, this book not only looks at how you can prevent mistakes, but also provides a primer for the fundamental mathematical skills required for your degree discipline. Whether you struggle with different types of interest rates, geometry, statistics, calculus, or any of the other mathematical areas vital to your degree, this book will guide you around the pitfalls.
