Deur 'n bioloog se oê lyk die mensdom se doen en late nogal vreemd, soms ontstellend, meesal snaaks, maar dikwels wel bewonderenswaardig. Erik Holm is een van die min wetenskaplikes wat nie bang is om ook vanuit 'n ander hoek na die mens te kyk nie. Gelukkig het hy 'n humorsin, en is hy darem ook nog liewer vir mense as vir sy hond! In hierdie boek gee die skrywer sy mening oor die ekologiese krisis en beveel aan dat ons ons hele wereldbeskouing verander, nie net ons tegnologie nie. Dit beteken ons ou volkie se pionierstalente kom weer in aanvraag. Hy glo ook parasiete is van groot nut vir die mensdom, want dink net hoe hierdie haglik oorbevolkte planeetjie nou al sou gelyk het sonder malaria! Het u geweet vegetaries is in werklikheid plantmoordenaars? Hulle is erger as vleiseters, want hulle pik op die mees weerlose lewende wesens wat nie eers kan skree of weghol nie. En diereregte-aktiviste is ongelukkig en onvrolik. Hulle het in der waarheid net een doel, en dis om ander mense ewe ongelukkig te maak. En hulle het geld. Soos die ikone van televisie-prediking weet hulle hoe om hulle bydraes uit na ewe ou tannies se sakke te rokkel. Wanneer die dood tersprake kom, glo hy ons instinkte lieg vir ons dat ons liggame onsterflik is. Ons verstand weet ons gaan sterf, maar ons arme instinktiewe liggame glo dit nie. Hierdie boek sal die leser laat dink, nadink en lag omdat Erik Holm se blik op die lewe ander verrassende fasette daarvan belig.

In this book are fifty-two compelling tales that will lead the reader on a journey of discovery of the African continent. It tracks the ancient grail of traditional African medicine or muthi. The journey takes one year, with one story for each of the fifty-two weeks. Many of the stories inherited through Africa's compelling oral tradition are between these covers: committed to paper for the first time ever.

The ancient African people were the first aromatherapists who well understood the effect of plants on the human body, mind and soul. Innately spiritual, the thousands of lineages of African people across thousands of years have all used plant medicines for healing, always with the blessing of their ancestors.

Knowledge of African plant mythology and its associated healing practices is most certainly a grail because on this great continent we call Africa, knowledge has always been an oral tradition. Because it was never written down, thousands of years of healing wisdom and intelligence have been lost in the transference from one generation to the next.

This book endeavoures to bring to light the deep history of fifty-two of the thousands of indigenous medicinal plants of Africa, before it is too late. The focus is towards Southern Africa because this region is a hotspot of cultural and botanical diversity. Unlike the healing knowledge of other ancient cultures, such as India or China, little of Africa's healing history is recorded.

As you read the stories about fifty-two of the continent's prominent indigenous plant cures, the authors hope you, too, will experience some of the magnetism, mystery and wisdom of Africa. They hope it will help you understand a bit more about yourself and about our species: the human being.

East Africa is one of the world's premier wildlife regions, well known for its mass migrations of herds and the dramatic predators that accompany them. As iconic are the trees that grow here - some endemic to the region and almost all identified with the plains and slopes of this land, stretching from the muggy coast, through grasslands and up to the cold, dry reaches of high mountain peaks. Among them are mangroves, cycads and palms; marulas, acacias and sausage trees; fever trees, toothbrush trees and giant bamboos and heaths.

This book presents some 100 of the region's most visible and significant tree species, arranged by vegetation zone. Multiple images of each species showing key ID features, such as bark, leaves, flowers and fruit, are teamed with concise descriptions, where to see the trees, calendar bars indicating flowering months, interesting notes about their uses - both medicinal and practical - and the myths and legends they have generated.

Colorful, interesting and geared for quick tree identification, this handy guide will help visitors and locals alike make the most of East African safaris.
