Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed. Very good condition. The only such guide to the history and wildlife of the Algoa Bay islands. "Threads of solitude and privation, punctuated by moments of high drama, bind together the lives of all those people who have had to come to terms with these islands - from the first people known to have set foot on them, terrified survivors of early shipwrecks, right up to the modern residents who are there because they choose to be. Not even modern technological conveniences like super-fast boats, helicopter shuttles, two-way radios, television, or now even cellular telephones, can entirely cancel out the loneliness of the islands." .

"Loaded is a collection of ten portraits, drawn in words, in which Meryl Urson depicts various Cape characters. Rather than dwell on the broader events of our time, the authoress relates her characters' personal battles - and their victories. In this collection, the Cape becomes as much a character as the people who inhabit it. For the Cape with its sleepy atmosphere, its spectrum of humanity and its astonishing beauty, was the source of inspiration for Loaded." .

He served in the first World War and subsequently made a name for himself as a daring and enterprising contractor, building bridges and dams in many parts of Southern Africa.
