Claire Guest was walking her dogs when Daisy, a fox red Labrador, nudged her breast insistently and stared up into her face with her big brown eyes. Sensing something was wrong, Claire visited her GP and soon found out she had a very deep – and difficult to diagnose – form of breast cancer. Daisy had saved her life, simply by smelling her cancer. With her scientific background and deep love of dogs, Claire intuited that Daisy and her canine pals could save many more lives, and set up the charity Medical Detection Dogs. Though faced with many challenges, Claire and her dogs have proven to be a remarkable asset to cancer detection, and have changed the lives of many seriously ill people and their families. This is the story of how our relationship with dogs can unleash life-saving talents, changing not only the medical world, but our own lives too.

Fresh starts don't come easy No one understands that more than Jane Slater—as in the notorious Slaters of Pinyon Ridge, Colorado.

Leisure And Pleasure

This engaging book explores an unexpected aspect of New Zealand social history: the modern body at leisure. Leisure and Pleasure begins by tracing the only New Zealand tour of Eugen Sandow, the most famous strongman of his age. Sandow's body delighted his audiences and inspired many to reshape and then reveal their toned torsos. His rich New Zealand legacy is examined as Daley takes us through the gyms of the early twentieth century, the rise of beauty contests, the new crazes of swimming and sunbathing, the advent of organised nudism and the display of young bodies in parks and playgrounds. While many advocated bodily improvement for the sake of the nation's well being, Daley shows that not everyone was motivated by such civic desires. The pleasure gained from looking and being looked at, from having fun in the surf and sand or on the swings and roundabouts, is an understudied aspect of our past. In uncovering it Daley argues for the need to broaden our conception of New Zealand history, and to move away from the common assumption that our geographical boundaries contain a unique national story. The leisure and pleasure lives of modern New Zealanders were intimately connected with global developments, whether this meant watching an international strongman perform in his leopard-skin knickers or looking to the Hitler Youth Movement for inspiration.
