About: Gondwana History: Memorable Moments from Namibia's Past, 6th edition

Gondwana History: Memorable Moments from Namibia's Past, 6th edition is a colourful mix of stories: amusing, entertaining, some of them peculiar and others of a rather serious nature: 60 years ago a first group of Brahman cattle from Texas arrived in Namibia aftor an eventful voyage and conquered local beef production in an unequalled manner. Alexander Schottland, a Private, in the German colonial forces, turned out to be a British spy. And a handsome Great Dane dog was enlisted into the Royal Navy as an Able Seaman. 2014 was the centenary of the start of the First World War. Several short features deal with the war years in Namibia. Other contributions are dedicated to formidable personalities such as the legendary Nama leader, Hendrik Witbooi, who with his diary left a cultural heritage to Namibia that is now inscribed into the UNESCO 'Memory of the World'. Or artist John Muafangejo, who's legacy includes an art school for aspiring artists from a background of poverty. Discover Namibia's uniqueness through its stories in Gondwana History: Memorable Moments from Namibia's Past, 6th edition, which will be the last volume in this series.
