Product Description

Product Description

When a burning sun dips low enough on the horizon to touch the brown-black earth, that is when South Africa is at its very best – a blazing expanse of broad landscapes of sea and veld, dusty savannah and equally dusty pavements. It is a vast country, extending from pristine coastal plain to rugged mountain passes across wide stretches of semi desert and forest, hills and valleys. Even travelling South Africans are unprepared for the sheer scale and enormous diversity of this grand landscape. Every day, everywhere, there are new sights to behold and new experiences to share – a graceful old Cape Dutch homestead set against lush vineyards, blue-purple mountains, the demure smile of a Zulu bride, a bird on a wire. It is the sun, the sand, the textures, the colours and the sounds that conjure up the spirit of South Africa. This volume is a fine tribute to the country, its people and its land-, sea- and cityscapes. This is the face of the nation – the essence of South Africa.

Sean Fraser graduated from Rhodes University with a degree in Journalism and Media Studies. He is the author of a number of coffee-table, reference, travel and guide books on the people and places of southern Africa, including the best-selling Seven Days in Cape Town, Picturesque South Africa, Cape Town A-Z and Gauteng A-Z, all published by Random House Struik. He lives in Cape Town with his wife and two sons.

A lovely "browsey" book which brought back some wonderful memories for me. Arrived in good time and smells lovely as all new books should! The photography is superb. Recommended to anyone with a love of, or holiday memories of, this fascinating country.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the most beautiful travel photography books I have ever reviewed 17 Sep 2014
By Bonnie Neely - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one of the most beautiful travel photography books I have ever reviewed. The book is like a tour through South Africa, often times at the end of day when colors and lights are the most beautiful and enticing. The book has full page, full color photos of each of the regions including Cape Peninsula, Southern Cape and Garden Route, East coast and Kwazulu-Natal, Mpumalanga & the North, Gauteng & Free State, Great Karoo & Interior. The photo tour, gathered from many sources credited at the back of the book, makes me want to go to South Africa and see it all for myself, but until I can this book is a great second way to experience this beautiful country, from its cities to its natural landscapes, its animals and gardens, coasts, mountains, beaches, and so much more. BEAUTIFUL!!!
