Richtersveld - the land and its peopleAuthor: Francois Odendaal and Helen Suich Date: 2007A fine unread copy in the original card pictorial wrappers as issued.The Richtersveld is one of the most remote and least explored regions of South Africa; it is also one of the richest in terms of both biological and mineral wealth. Tucked away on the Atlantic coast in the far northwest corner of South Africa, it forms part of Namaqualand, which was home to the Nama people long before Europeans first landed at the Cape. At first sight it is perhaps a forbidding part of the country - its vast sandy plains, rugged mountains and few permanent water sources appear to offer little respite from the extreme temperatures and aridity. But it comprises an extraordinary, often cryptic plant and animal life; here, in a land almost without liquid sustenance, the richest diversity of succulent flora in the world is found. And it is home to a community of humans united through dispossession - of their land and of many basic human rights - and determined to survive in this harsh refuge. The isolation of the Richtersveld and its enigmatic beauty make it an increasingly attractive destination for adventurers and for those seeking out Earth’s final frontiers.This title explores all aspects of the region.
