The region encompassing the Overberg and the Whale Coast really is a hidden treasure: craggy mountains trace a jagged path toward oceans inhabited by schools of migrant whales, green hills grazed by wild antelope give onto tranquil lagoons and beaches, while tilled orchards and neatly planned vineyards stretch out in wild contrast to the disorder of pristine forests. There is a corner of this beautiful region to satisfy every soul…These pages reflect what comprises the essential character of the place: the natural surroundings, the contrast of modern and traditional and, importantly, the many creative and industrious individuals who live here, providing an insight into the activities with which thy fill their days. Words and pictures can never replace reality, however, and few would argue that any experience of South Africa is incomplete without a visit to this peaceful corner of our land. J.Browne & Ann Dawson. 275 x 216mm, 176 pages, hardcover.
