'East of the Cape - Conserving Eden'
Fernwood Press’s final natural history book continued their tradition of producing well researched and attractive books on interesting subjects. In this one the area covered is the meeting point of 6 of Africa’s biomes – Forest, Grassland, Savannah, Nama-Karoo, Succulent Karoo and Fynbos on the south eastern coast astride the border between the summer and winter rainfall areas. Those who have been down the Garden Route will have travelled through it. It has been neglected until recently in spite of its incredible diversity of plant and animal life at the meeting of these biomes, as well as its own speciality – “Thicket”. The book looks at all aspects of the natural history and the peoples of the area, how it developed and how it can be conserved for the future. Deserves to be as well known as their other books on Fynbos, Namaqualand, Table Mountain ..... Took some tracking down to get hold of it – and was well worth the effort. 2009 12 x 9 ¼ 168 pages
