Twelve thematic chapters dedicated to the places that define the soul of France offer readers 100 'best of' destinations to the most beautiful, iconic, and evocative cities, sites, and landscapes.

Beautifully illustrated with color photographs and regional maps, this book showcases the best of France's myriad delights, guiding us through UNESCO World Heritage sites, splendid castles, beautiful towns, great museums, and natural wonders. The compact, fully-illustrated guide reveals France's medieval treasures, gardens, vineyards, and the homes of its most celebrated creatives. From the Lascaux prehistoric cave drawings to Avignon's Papal Palace; the formal gardens of Ch teau de Cormatin in Burgundy to the fairytale Ch teau d'Harou in Lorraine; and Leonardo de Vinci's house in the Loire Valley to the home of General de Gaulle, readers will discover the rich tapestry of French history and culture. This tour of France celebrates stunning landscapes: from the lighthouse of Cordouan to the Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senan--both masterpieces of Renaissance architecture; Monet's gardens at Giverny that inspired his Water Lilies to the Maul vrier Japanese Oriental Garden; the coastal city of Port-Cros in Provence to the Ile-aux-Moines in Brittany. This selection of the nation's most fascinating locations goes beyond the well-beaten tourist circuit to introduce you to the very heart of France.
Curated by French historian Franck Ferrand and complete with overview maps to plot your own itineraries, this guide explores all facets of the multifarious country.

The Karoo is big sky country; a land of vast plains punctuated by flat-topped mountains, conical hills and secluded valleys, a land of scrubby bushes and hardy trees, where pioneers carved roads out of rock to set down roots in an unforgiving environment.

Here dreams are born, legends are made, and outcasts find sanctuary. It is also an ancient place, whose story is revealed through geology, fossils and artefacts, and whose human lineage predates any written history. Today, the people who inhabit it must manifest the same fortitude that sustained those who left their footprints in the primieval mud.

In Hidden Karoo you will find all this, and more. Through a series of superb photo-essays, this majestic place is revealed as a land where conservation and neglect are seldom far apart, where one town boasts splendidly restored buildings, while along a dusty road lie forgotten villages waiting for... something. Could it be a renewal, or a slow death? There's nothing novel about the movement of people from country to city, and the Karoo mimics other parts of the world where rural areas become derelict as they are depopulated.

Hidden Karoo presents a snapshot of the region, offering a glimpse into towns and villages, farms and churches, public buildings and private homes, all against a backdrop of awe-inspiring landscapes. Through words and pictures, it prompts us to consider what was, what is and, perhaps, what might be. One constant about the Karoo is change. A book can do no more than capture a moment in time or depict fragments of a place, but in doing so, it bears witness to the past and offers the hope that there may yet be a future for this unparalleled part of our country.

South Africa has a unique set of characteristics that make walking safaris in big game areas one of the safest and most rewarding outdoor experiences: a huge expanse of protected habitat richly populated with wildlife; excellent tourism facilities; a favourable climate; and expertly trained trail guides.

Seasoned hikers, Hlengiwe Magagula and Denis Costello cover more than 50 guided walks across 21 parks and reserves in South Africa (including two in eSwatini and one in Botswana). They unpack the options available in each park, from short dawn and dusk walks and multi-day wilderness trails to backpacking trails that span several days. Facilities range from ultra-luxurious to 'wild camping', either in tents or under the stars. Also included is a series of first-hand accounts that vividly illustrate the magical experience of exploring the bush on foot. An advisory section gives a rundown of when to go, what to pack, what to wear, and the dos and don'ts of walking in areas with big game.

Leon Nell's sixth book to explore another captivating part of South Africa reveals a bounty of treasures that give the West Coast, or Weskus as locals call it, its particular allure.

Beginning at Melkbosstrand just north of Cape Town, and ending where the Orange River meets the Atlantic Ocean, the book divides the coastal stretch into four discrete and easily explored regions. Coastal and inland towns are described, together with their main
attractions, offering glimpses into early human history, local culture and traditions, nature and wildlife, and modern-day economic pursuits.

SOUTH encompasses the Cape West Coast Biosphere Reserve, various wildflower reserves, Darling, Evita se Perron and !Khwa ttu San Heritage Centre
CENTRAL covers Yzerfontein and the West Coast National Park, including Langebaan Lagoon, Eve's Footprints, Postberg Flower Reserve and Saldanha
NORTH explores the celebrated fishing industry at Velddrif, St Helena Bay and Elands Bay, and archaeological discoveries in the area
DIAMOND COAST spans Doringbaai, Vredendal, Port Nolloth, Kleinzee and Alexander Bay.

Framed by the Atlantic in the west and the winding N7 highway in the east, the West Coast is a place of varied landscapes and vast contrasts: from moody and at times tempestuous seas and windswept beaches, to verdant vineyards and kaleidoscopic swathes of wildflowers in spring. Wild yet tranquil, playful yet contemplative, dramatic yet understated - its eclectic offering beckons residents and travellers alike.

Peter tells the story of four years of travelling, much of it in their modified Land Rover that was shipped from continent to continent, and the moments of awe at what they found as well as the disappointment with people and their governments for failing to protect their wildest parts; for failing to recognise the inherent value in wilderness.
The travelling was hard, but they brought back the images and the stories to show us the wild places and what threatens them. A story told with passion that makes you yearn for wide open spaces and wildlife without fear of humans.

Join them to visit Antarctica, Patagonia and the Andes, the Yukon and Alaska, the Arctic, the Tibetan Plateau, the Kimberly in Australia and finally the Namibian desert.

Welcome, dear visitor, to a proud and storied nation. When you put down this guidebook, look around you. A nation isn't land. A nation is people.
Equal parts speculative and satirical, the stories in Matthew Baker's collection portray a world within touching distance of our own. This is an America riven by dilemmas confronting so many of us, turned on its head by one of the most innovative voices of the moment.

Read together, these parallel-universe stories create a composite portrait of our true nature and a dark reflection of the world we live in.

Dr Joan Louwrens was always drawn to wild places, which were balm to her soul. When her husband died, leaving her alone with two small daughters to raise, she threw herself wholeheartedly into 'adventure medicine', seeking out the world's most remote corners - on land and at sea - to practise her healing, both her own and others.
Working in wild places from the Kruger Park to the Australian Outback, the Atlantic Ocean islands, and both the south and north poles, 'Doctor Joan' dealt with a vast range of medical issues, from rabies to deep-vein thrombosis, childbirth to wisdom-tooth extraction, catatonia to depression.

Showing an eagerness to learn and a humility that isn't always a given in her profession, and with a wry eye and a sympathetic outlook, Joan Louwrens has written a memoir that's a poignant and often funny story of a life lived to the full

Reise met Schoeman het ontstaan uit 'n jare lange e-poskorrespondensie tussen die outeur en Karel Schoeman (1939-2017). Die lande waar hulle albei gereis of gewoon het was dikwels die onderwerp van hul kommunikasie. Ná Schoeman se dood het daar 'n persoonlike gemis ontstaan, die behoefte om daaraan uiting aan te gee en terselfdertyd die idee dat daar 'n vertelling kan wees oor dié aspekte van die skrywer wat sy lesers moontlik nie ken nie. Ria klee die stories oor Ierland, Skotland, Suid-Afrika en Amsterdam in met haar eie belewenisse waarin sy Karel Schoeman herdenk. Tydens die skryf van die boek het sy plekke en mense opgesoek wat hom geken het en wat die gemis aan hom met haar deel.

Two days after Notre Dame burned, I flew to Paris to appear on the TV programme La Grande Librairie for a discussion about cathedrals. The following morning I had breakfast at the Hotel Bristol with my French publisher and she asked me to write a short book about Notre Dame and what it means to all of us. She said she would donate the publisher's profits to the rebuilding fund and, if I wished, I could do the same with my royalties. Yes, I said; of course, I'd love to.'
Ken Follett

In aid of the crucial restoration work to restore Paris's great cathedral, Notre-Dame: A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals is a moving, short piece of non-fiction celebrating the stunning history of this beloved building, from Ken Follett, author of the multi-million copy selling Kingsbridge series.

This edition contains an exclusive extract from The Evening and the Morning, a prequel to The Pillars of the Earth, publishing Autumn 2020.

If you could read only one book about Cape Town - to truly understand it, to glimpse its soul - which would it be?
An unflinching portrayal of an enigmatic metropolis drawing on Trotter's experiences with prostitutes, sailors, minstrels, professors, pupils, gangsters, politicians, and 'poo-throwing' protestors.
An incisive mix of travel narrative, literary non-fiction, and personal memoir, this book reveals the often hidden contradictory realities of Cape Town, a place between two oceans, between first and third worlds, between east and west. The majority of its citizens: a people between black and white, native and settler, African and European.
How can we understand a city that is most assuredly in Africa, though not—seemingly—of it?
By exploring this city's tween-ness, we can begin to understand the soul of this town—haunted by its past, unsure of its future.
A short book just over 100 pages, it allows readers to quickly identify the unique pulse of the city, its throbbing historical, social, cultural and political beat that underlies the transactions between all Capetonians.
This is not a substitute for a traditional guidebook, but a perfect companion to one, filling in the intimate details that other books leave out.

Cape Town: A Place Between is the first of the Intimate Geographies series. It provides just the right amount of insight for locals and visitors to understand the deeper meanings of their experiences in the Mother City. Each title in the Intimate Geographies Series provides a personal, idiosyncratic, in-depth portrayal of a place, filtered through the experiences of an individual who has lived there, knows it, understands it, has a powerful relationship with it. Future volumes will feature other intense portrayals of compelling off-beat cities around the globe.
