Arthur

The dog who crossed the jungle to find a home

By Mikael Lindnord

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

The epic true story of one man, his dog, and how they found each other.

THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
The heart-warming true story of an incredible rescue dog. When you are racing 435 miles through the jungles and mountains of South America, the last thing you need is a stray dog tagging along. But that's exactly what happened to Mikael Lindnord, captain of a Swedish adventure racing team, when he threw a scruffy mongrel a meatball one afternoon.

When they left the next day, the dog followed. Try as they might, they couldn't lose him - and soon Mikael realised that he didn't want to. Crossing rivers, battling illness and injury, and struggling through some of the toughest terrain on the planet, the team and the dog walked together towards the finish line, where Mikael decided he would save Arthur and bring him back to his family in Sweden, whatever it took.

Authors:
Mikael Lindnord, Val Hudson

Arthur and Friends is the continued adventures of Arthur, the plucky, scruffy stray dog from Ecuador who followed his owner Mikael through the jungle to find his forever home. From Arthur's first Christmas in Sweden and trips to London, to a terrifying bout of illness and family camping adventures, Arthur and Friends is the next gripping, uplifting chapter of Arthur and Mikael's story. Interspersed with this narrative are heart-warming, moving readers' stories of their own rescue dogs. From Ecuador to America to Australia and everywhere in between, the stories of these other 'Arthurs' prove both that dogs are man's best friend, and that a little kindness can go a very long way.

Zoo Quest

David Attenborough
Authors:
David Attenborough

In 1954, a young television presenter was offered the opportunity of a lifetime - to travel the world finding rare and elusive animals for London Zoo's collection, and to film the expeditions for the BBC. His name was David Attenborough, and the programme, Zoo Quest, not only heralded the start of a remarkable career in broadcasting, but changed the way we viewed the natural world forever. Written with his trademark wit and charm, Zoo Quest is not just the story of a remarkable adventure, but of the man who made us fall in love with the natural world, and who is still doing so today.

Nigel Reed
Authors:
Nigel Reed

Struggling to solve your dog's behavioural problems? Looking to achieve the perfect relationship with your dog? The Dog Guardian is here to help.Traditional methods to overcome a dog's undesirable behaviour typically involve tiring out, distracting, controlling or bribing, without identifying the root cause of the problem.

This revolutionary book explains the philosophy and gives you practical, step-by-step advice. This new and vital information will empower you to address any of your dog's undesirable behaviours, no matter its age, breed or history. It will ensure your dog trusts your decisions and follows you of its own free will. The Dog Guardian has already helped hundreds of dogs and their owners address problem behaviours including fussy eaters, dogs that bark at the door, dog-on-dog aggression, dogs that jump up at visitors and dogs that pull on the lead. It's easier than you'd think.

The Gender Games

Juno Dawson
Authors:
Juno Dawson

'It's a boy!' or 'It's a girl!' are the first words almost all of us hear when we enter the world. Before our names, before we have likes and dislikes - before we, or anyone else, has any idea who we are. And two years ago, as Juno Dawson went to tell her mother she was (and actually, always had been) a woman, she started to realise just how wrong we've been getting it.Gender isn't just screwing over trans people, it's messing with everyone. From little girls who think they can't be doctors to teenagers who come to expect street harassment. From exclusionist feminists to 'alt-right' young men. From men who can't cry to the women who think they shouldn't. As her body gets in line with her mind, Juno tells not only her own story, but the story of everyone who is shaped by society's expectations of gender - and what we can do about it. Featuring insights from well-known gender, feminist and trans activists including Rebecca Root, Laura Bates, Gemma Cairney, Anthony Anaxagorou, Hannah Witton, Alaska Thunderfuck and many more, The Gender Games is a frank, witty and powerful manifesto for a world where what's in your head is more important than what's between your legs.

Beyond Belief

Colm O'gorman
Authors:
Colm O'gorman

'I was living in a world where a priest who spoke the words of God used me for sex, and there was no-one to tell. The world where this horror happened didn't exist for anyone else.' As a boy in Ireland where everyone -- from among his own neighbours to the powers of church and state -- chose to deny that a priest could sexually assault a child, Colm O'Gorman felt only shame, guilt and fear at the regular rape and abuse he suffered. But Colm would go on to make history, successfully suing the Roman Catholic Church, asking questions of the Pope himself and creating a watershed in history as hundreds more victims found the courage to report their abuse. Beyond Belief is a powerful story of a young man's shame turning to outrage, and demonstrates that -- whatever our past hurts -- there is hope for the future if we are prepared to stand for truth.
