Description:

A sumptuous celebration of a unique region, this book allows the reader to experience the stunning scenery of the West Coast, explore the villages and meet some of its colourful characters. From national parks bursting with spring flowers and a world-renowned fossil park to the ethereal figures of San rock art, the observation of the terrain, accompanied by exceptional images, paints a landscape as diverse as it is intriguing. Exploring, amongst a host of fascinating places, fishing villages, the farms of Citrusdal and the splendour of the Piketberg, the author has delved into the history of their early colonial days and created an absorbing backdrop to the cameos of the current residents. Karena du Plessis has an uncanny ability to get people from all avenues of life to talk to her: opening up about their families, their lives, expectations and disappointments, their favourite recipes and places, they even let her peek into the cupboard where the family heirlooms are kept.
