'I felt certain there must be gold in those hills, Jack', wrote a prospector to Ion Idriess, 'but I know very little about the game.' And so Jack Idriess wrote Prospecting for Gold in 1931. This is the 20th edition and known throughout Australia as the classic self-help manual for would-be prospectors. 'This book is written to help the new hand who ventures into the bush seeking gold... The "towny" prospector, with this book as a guide, will soon master methods of prospecting and the working of his find.' In an easy conversational tone, the author of Lasseter's Last Ride and Flynn of the Inland sets many a hopeful prospector on the road to discovering gold.

Biosensors are rising to the forefront of technology because they show that humans can harness the incredible functions of living molecules and cells and use them in valuable ways. Biomolecules and cells are critical components of biosensors. In order for these components to function in an artificial environment, they must be immobilized in a way that does not affect their interactions. This useful book provides a selection of the most current methods for immobilizing biomolecules and cells on a variety of surfaces so that they retain their functionality. The book also includes analytical techniques for measuring the functionality of immobilized biomolecules. All of the protocols have been tried and validated by the authors. The methods are easily repeatable, and the authors have carefully crafted the instructions so that they can be used without an extensive prior knowledge of biochemistry. Research in biosensors is carried out in a wide variety of fields including biochemistry, chemistry, engineering, laboratory medicine, environmental and defense research. This guide will be invaluable to researchers in all of these disciplines.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the different dynamic patterns involved in the redistribution of mercury in the global environment, and its impact on human health and ecosystems. Increasing mercury usage and the lack of emission control policy, especially in fast developing countries, represent a complex environmental and political issue that can only benefit from more accurate measurement.

Shortly before his death in 2014, an elderly man brought his publisher friend a crumpled purple folder filled with type-written pages. Cleaning the Stables he called it: a selection of stories, poems and a recipe that he didn't want left behind. In this posthumous collection we are given a feast of mostly unpublished treasures from the great literary life of Morris Lurie. Written in the wry and ironic style he was celebrated for, these pieces are sometimes odd, always clever, and at times profoundly moving as they give us insight into a man who had a truly unique way of interpreting and writing about the world around him. 'One of the most significant Australian writers of his generation.' - Peter Pierce, editor of the Cambridge History of Australian Literature 'A sharp, rare writer with an acerbic wit.' - Kevin Childs, The Guardian

There's always some kind of excitement: Bo sees her first airplane, has a run-in with a bear, and meets a mysterious lost little boy. Bo at Ballard Creek by Kirkpatrick Hill is an unforgettable story of a little girl growing up in the exhilarating time after the big Alaska gold rushes.
