An Oprah Book club favourite that spreads joy, mindfulness, and hope to all who read it. Or in the words of Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl: "A dreamy, post-apocalyptic love letter to things of beauty, big and small: a twitching trout, a can of Sprite, empathy, sex, decency and a good dog"

Whale Warriors by Peter Heller Whale Warriors, Paperback (February 2008)

For two months Heller was part of the crew of a vegan pirate ship of eco-crusaders, the Farley Mowat, on a mission to stop Japanese whaling ships in the Antarctic. As they plough through the Antarctic, weathering gale force winds and thirty-five foot seas, they find themselves at the centre of an international whaling war.

Hell or High Water by Peter Heller Hell or High Water, Paperback (January 2005)

This epic takes the paddlers through the most dangerous sustained whitewater ever kayaked.
