1. Tuna by Kenneth Cook
New South Wales fisherman Jack Foster has only one ambition - to own a tuna boat that can provide his struggling family with a future to look forward to. A decent boat and one big catch are all he needs for his dream to come true - the dream that lies almost within his grasp. This is the story of one man's desperate race against time, at the risk of losing everything he has. However great the odds against him, Jack Foster is determined to see his gamble through. A powerful and haunting novel of men who face the awesome challenge of the sea.

2. Texas Dawn by Phillip Finch
They were three spirited men who shared a vision of the future and the will to make it a reality. Together they built the finest cattle ranch in Texas. But as the land bound them, it also drove them apart, leaving a bitter legacy for their children: a hard-driving young cowboy, and a determined girl whose pride went as deep as her love for the land. The powerful story of a Texas valley and of the people who made it their own.

3. Going Wild by David Taylor
Dr Taylor has one of the world's most unusual professions - he's a zoo vet, travelling thousands of miles every year to treat his exotic patients. Whether it's fish or fowl, zebra or whale, Taylor is ready to cope with any emergency. Life wasn't always so exciting: as an ambitious young vet, Taylor found himself tending poodles and budgerigars. Going Wild tells how he broke into the challenging world of zoo medicine and describes the fascination adventures of his new career.

4. The Warfield Syndrome by Henry Denker
Dedicated to her brilliant career in neurology, Dr Christine Warfield has never allowed herself to become emotionally involved with a patient - not until Gilbert Hopkins enters her life. A distinguished physicist who has been shot by a Soviet agent, Hopkins has suffered a crippling loss of memory that is as threatening to United States security as it is frightening to his fifteen-year-old daughter, Alice. While Dr Warfield struggles to save his life, she finds herself haunted by painful memories from her past, stirred by the awakening of love. A novel of vivid medical drama and thrilling international suspense.

The book was caught at the Aquarium in Melbourne. It caught my attention. The "bookcrossing" idea sounded interesting and meaningful. We took it and then brought it back to our home city, Hong Kong.
