About This Item
But there is much more to Knysna than even this,a whole treasury of fact about the men and women of its past which the author has so painstakingly unearthed and which she presents with a nice sense of humour.Plettenberg Bay,now the playground of tourists,was the precursor of Knysna as a port for shipping much-needed timber from the forests of Cape Town.
Primarily this is a book about the ships that plied to and from Knysna,and the men who sailed them.
In none of the chapters is this fascinating book,whether on forestry,or the long-forgotten Millwood goldfields,or the elephant hunts,or the ancestry of George Rex,does the author fail to bring to light new evidence which transforms her subject.
Since April 2013 and again in March 2015,and in this year too, the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template, altering it's prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
