They can therefore survive when most other plants would succumb. This book provides adequate guidance to identifying and understanding these plants." .

"When the Grosvenor ran aground on the treacherous coast of south-east Africa, an astonishing number of her crew and passengers, including women and children, reached the shore safely. But the castaways found themselves hundreds of miles from the nearest European outpost - and utterly ignorant of the people among whom they found themselves." Ian Thomson writes in 'Independent on Sunday': "A deftly reconstructed slice of high seas drama ... A marvellous account of Europeans adrift in 1780s Africa, as well as a dark parable of the rat-like behaviour of marooned human beings." .

The portraits are exact in every detail and delight those who have lived among these people - Xhosa, Pondo and Thembu, Bhaca and Zulu - because of their veracity. Equally they delight strangers and travellers because they reveal the unfamiliar and romantic. … One of the pleasures this book provides is that it expresses in painting and words the personal reaction of the artist, what she feels about… Read More
