Most of O. Henry's stories are set in his own time, the early 20th century. Many take place in New York City and deal for the most part with ordinary people: clerks, policemen, waitresses, etc. O. Henry's work is wide-ranging, and his characters can be found roaming the cattle-lands of Texas, exploring the art of the con-man, or investigating the tensions of class and wealth in turn-of-the-century New York. O. Henry had an inimitable hand for isolating some element of society and describing it with an incredible economy and grace of language. Some of his best and least-known work is contained in Cabbages and Kings, a series of stories each of which explores some individual aspect of life in a paralytically sleepy Central American town, while advancing some aspect of the larger plot and relating back one to another.

'I never knew I could do this as a job' National Geographic conservationist and chopper pilot Matt Wright was born for a life of action and adventure. Raised in the wilds of Far North Queensland, Papua New Guinea and outback Australia, as a child he would catch deadly snakes for fun or lizards and turtles for show and tell at school. From his early years working in the outback to a short stint in the army, Matt's life reads like a boy's own adventure story, but he was always one to go his own way - sometimes making up the rules as he went along. Today he is the star of his own international television show on National Geographic, a renowned outback adventurer and a wrangler of deadly animals. Giant saltwater crocodiles are a big part of Matt's story but jumping in his chopper and rounding up wild buffalo, brumbies and Brahman cattle keeps him pretty busy too! The Outback Wrangler takes you on a wild ride, where that special outback flavour of danger, adrenaline and adventure comes together in the personal stories of a unique Australian.
