An Irreverent look at fitness in your fifties...Run a bit... Have fun a bit...This is not a diet book nor an exercise regime, it's a sidestep onto a conveyor belt that, if you choose to stay put, will lead you to weight loss, a better state of health and an increase in overall fitness. Holy crap, that sounds boring...but bear with me. I hit 57 somewhere between fat and obese, looked at myself in the mirror and decided I better do something now or prepare for an early exit.This isn't meant to be a book that tells you what to do, it's more of a diary... a log... an adventure that has opened up a new door in my life. If any part of it helps, informs or makes you smile...that's a bonus.

In this award-winning novel, James Roy uses the short story to explore the lives of the young residents of an Australian town and the social tapestry of their community. This town doesn't have a name. But if it seems familiar, its because we recognise the people who walk its streets. From the serendipity of an unexpected moment of connection, to the sadness of leaving home, and the pain of the desperate decisions we make, these stories take a personal and uncompromising look at life. Love and loss, grief, humour and passion. Hope and hopelessness. Thirteen linked stories, spanning a year in the lives of thirteen young people, from a town near you.
Lalor gives a sometimes angry but more often funny account of what it was like to be a part-Aboriginal man in outback Australia. He grew up with colour prejudice among his own relatives, was put in a boys' home and ran away, and did various kinds of work. He recorded on tape these detailed recollections of his extraordinary life.
Born in Barrow Creek, Australia, north of Alice Springs, to an Aboriginal mother and a white father, Don Ross grew up at Neutral Junction station between two worlds: the white settler world of his grandfather and other station owners, and the Aboriginal Kaytetye world of his mother's family. He knew both cultures and spoke both languages, and experienced the uneasy tension of living between the two. Don was an eager eight-year-old when he first started to work in the stock camps on his grandfather's cattle station in the early 1920s. In a series of yarns, he delights in recalling the many colorful characters who crossed his path, and recollects the arduous and often dangerous life of a stockman. The Versatile Man paints a picture of a bygone era of pastoral industry development and technological change in a frontier world where only the strong, the capable, the resourceful, and the adaptable survived.
