July New Books

It’s July, and winter is well and truly here. Perfect weather for a hot fire, a warm drink and a good book…


The Tree Collectors: Tales of Arboreal Obsession    
by Amy Stewart

This book is the perfect antidote to a cold winter and a gloom-filled newsfeed. Amy Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Drunken Botanist, give us fifty gorgeously illustrated vignettes of people whose lives have been transformed by their relationship with trees. 

Why do they collect trees? Where do they do it? How do they do it? Each interview is short (just a couple of pages) but, as Amy Stewart observes, once you start asking people about the things they do out of curiosity and passion, you're in for an intimate conversation.

‘These mesmerising trees, and the inspiring people they’ve transformed, will alter your perspective and give you hope.’ Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees


Demystifying Dementia: Everything You Need to Know     
by Rose Capp

In this essential book, Rose Capp draws upon thirty years of research, work and teaching in aged care to show us how to live a good life with dementia. Whether it affects your loved ones, your friends or the people you are caring for, this is the one book you need to help take the mystery out of this condition. 

‘This excellent book will be invaluable for everyone seeking to support the identity, independence and wellbeing of people living with dementia.’ Ita Buttrose AC OBE
