Oor Berge en Dale

R 230
Daar is nie 'n grondpad te sinkplaat, plaasdraad te hoog of aanwysings te gebrekkig om Jackie Grobler te keer nie. As hy eers 'n monument in sy visier het, sal hy dit vind. In hierdie boek reis hy Oor berge en dale van Lichtenburg in Noordwes tot die heuwels van Tabankulu in die Oos-Kaap op soek na interessante monumente en gedenkplekke.
Van die monumente is bekend en vertel van groot keerpunte in ons geskiedenis. Ander is weggesteek en bring onbekende verhale in die lig. Grobler reis onder meer op die spoor van Voortrekker Carel Trichardt deur Mpumalanga en in KwaZulu-Natal gaan hy na die slagvelde van die Anglo-Zoeloeoorlog en hy besoek ook struggle-gedenkplekke. In Gauteng vind hy monumente ter ere van twee van Suid-Afrika se grootste leiers: Nelson Mandela en Jan Smuts.
In die Vrystaat soek hy na oorblyfsels van twee konsentrasiekampe en in Limpopo kom hy af op monumente aan 'n Anglo-Boereoorlogkanon (die Long Tom). Sy reise na die Oos-Kaap neem hom na gedenkplekke vir Steve Biko en in die Wes-Kaap gaan hy op die spoor van die Portugese ontdekkingsreisigers.
Elke provinsie sal 'n kaart hê wat die monumente aandui. 'n Boek vir liefhebbers van die langpad én vir leunstoelreisigers.

The Historical Overberg

R 285
R 228Jy spaar R 57
Situated between the Hottentots Holland Mountains and the Breede River, the Overberg is an important agricultural region and a popular holiday destination for tourists and nature lovers who delight in the beauty of its mountainous landscape, abundant plant species and long sandy beaches.

But this area also has a rich history going back thousands of years, when the indigenous Khoi people originally thrived there, before the first European settlers arrived to leave their own indelible imprint on the culture, architecture and character of the region. This book provides a detailed account of this past by pointing out the many places, buildings, events and personalities that have made the Overberg the diverse and unique place that it is today.

The Overberg has been a home or point of interest for explorers, innovators, artists and writers, for figures as varied as Bartholomew Diaz, Olof Bergh, Hendrik Verwoerd, Gregoire Boonzaier, Audrey Blignault and Breyten Breytenbach. Some of South Africa's oldest towns, houses and missionary stations can be found here, and its treacherous coastline has been the cause of hundreds of shipwrecks for centuries.

Enlivened by historical and current photographs and informative side panels, this book is a collector's item.

On top of Table Mountain

R 300
R 240Jy spaar R 60
This highly entertaining book tells the 'story' of Table Mountain as experienced by quite extraordinary visitors who have made it to the top of this strange mountain.

Ever since 1503 when an off-course seafarer climbed Table Mountain to find out where on Earth he was, visitors to the Cape have toiled, scrambled, ridden on horseback, run or climbed to the top - and written about it afterwards. Taken together, these reports provide a fascinating biography of the mountain. Looked at separately, they are thrilling reads, penned by larger-than-life voyagers and, often unlikely, adventurers.

This is the first time that the English translations of these reports, written in various languages, including Russian and Swedish, have been collected in one volume.

The first seamen who clambered to the top wrote 'heroic' accounts of their daring feats, the flower-hunters and other explorers were more nonchalant about their ascents, and the women who followed in their tracks up Platteklip Gorge, thought it was a breeze. And has the mountain been tamed? Not in a million years, and not with modern mountaineers and their heart-stopping climbs up the sheer cliffs.

In On Top of Table Mountain you will meet, among others, botanist Carl Peter Thunberg who risked his life to pick an exquisite blue disa, growing precariously on a ledge; James Holman, the 'Blind Traveller' who rode up and down the mountain on horseback; and Lady Jane Herschel who, while pregnant, still managed to ride part of the way up and then went for a canter on top.

The life-stories of the 27 exceptional visitors are told with flair and humour, and together with the accounts of the ascents, provide a riveting read.

R 280

South Africa

R 260
R 208Jy spaar R 52
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 savanna and equally dusty pavements. It is a vast country, extending from pristine coastal plain to rugged mountain passes across wide stretches of semidesert 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, 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- and cityscapes. This is the face of the nation - the essence of South Africa.
