Geological Journeys: a traveller's guide to South Africa's rocks and landforms is an essential companion on car journeys. For those who wonder about the jaunty tilt of a mountain ahead, the unusual patterns of a road cutting, the colour and texture of the roadside soil, or the purpose of a distant minehead, this handy volume offers answers and explanations about features along all our major routes and some of the lesser, but geologically interesting ones too. The three main metropolitan areas - Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban - are also described, so that city residents can understand their geological features. With accessible text, and using familiar landmarks to highlight phenomena - from the obvious to the subtle - the authors explain our rich geological heritage, its likely roots and its often tumultuous history. Along the way, they also discuss the historical background and the personalities and stories that relate to the landscape.
