These stories will excite, entertain and enthral you – Of Hominins, Hunter-Gatherers and Heroes: Searching for 20 Amazing Places in South Africa
Of Hominins, Hunter-Gatherers and Heroes: Searching for 20 Amazing Places in South Africa by David Bristow offers spellbinding stories of some amazing, little-known places in South Africa.
Who knew that on the West Coast, just an hour’s drive from Cape Town, is one of only three places on earth where you can see the fossils of creatures that lived in antediluvian times and died right where you see them now? Or that all San rock art, whether painted or engraved, is a conversation with the spirit world?
Bristow ventured to some lesser-known or visited places such as the West Coast Fossil Park, Mapungubwe, Hogsback, Lambasi Bay, Port Grosvenor, and Nieu Bethesda. Some old favourites also, like the Garden Route, Kruger National Park, Cape Point and the Johannesburg war museum – but they each get a new treatment.
Written in the same engaging style as previous books in the Stories from the Veld series, Of Hominins, Hunter-Gatherers and Heroes is a journey through a bucket list of must-see places in this ‘world in one country’.
