Description: This is South Africa

This work provides a visual essay on South Africa, its peoples and their cultures. The photographs are complemented by a text that both establishes historical perspective and offers an insight into the realities of a country moving hesitantly into a challenging future. It takes the reader on a panoramic journey of discovery through a land of great diversity and natural beauty. Broad in its scope, it still reveals fascinating detail about this enigmatic land. South Africa, 1,2 million square kilometres in extent, sprawls from the Limpopo River in the north to the southern extremity of Cape Agulhas, where Africa peters out rather unimpressively in a jumble of low, windswept sand dunes and shallow reefs. Peter Borchert was born and educated in South Africa and has been involved in writing and editing throughout his distinguished career.His consuming interest has always been natural history and conservation. This is South Africa, his first major work, is written with insight and sensitivity. Peter lives in Pinelands and works in Rondebosch, Cape Town.
