Unlike some contemporary travel books, this one reads like a well crafted story, while at the same time, despite its age, still being very informative. I really enjoyed reading it on the various trains I took when I visited South Africa and it strongly influenced my choice of route and stops. What was surprising was how some of the landscape photos were identical to what I saw from the same vantage points; change is still slow in South Africa...

My book didn't look anything like this picture14 July 2014

My book didn't look anything like this picture. It was a plain, old volume. While I love the content, this picture does not accurately portray what I purchased. It didn't matter, because it was the content I was after, but I could have been very disappointed, if I expected my book to look like the above photo.
