Leon Nell’s sixth book to explore another captivating part of South
Africa reveals a bounty of treasures that give the West Coast, or
Weskus as locals call it, its particular allure.
Framed by the Atlantic in the west and the winding N7 highway in the east, the West Coast is a place of varied landscapes and vast contrasts: from moody and at times tempestuous seas and windswept beaches, to verdant vineyards and kaleidoscopic swathes of wildflowers in spring. Wild yet tranquil, playful yet contemplative, dramatic yet understated – its eclectic offering beckons residents and travellers alike.
The atmosphere on board the first non-stop flight from London to Sydney is electric. Celebrities are rumoured to be among the passengers in business class, and the world is watching the landmark journey.
Flight attendant Mina is trying to focus on the passengers, instead of her troubled five-year-old daughter back at home - or the cataclysmic problems in her marriage. But soon after the plane takes off, Mina receives a chilling anonymous note. Someone wants to make sure the plane never reaches its destination. They're demanding her cooperation . . . and they know exactly how to get it.
It's twenty hours to landing.
A lot can happen in twenty hours . . .
This stunning depiction of geology in Namibia combines searingly beautiful photography with clear explanations of how the varied landscapes formed.
Arranged chronologically (starting 13.8 billion years ago), the chapters each deal with a particular event or process that has resulted in the formation under discussion. These include the early beginnings of the Earth, meteorites, canyons and limestone caves, vast desert landscapes, moonscapes and bizarrely-shaped rocks, and Namibia’s astonishing underwater lakes and reservoirs.
Picture-driven, with accessible text, this book features all the highlights of Namibian landscapes and landforms. A treat for travellers real and virtual – those on the road as well as those in armchairs.
Scenic Cape Town takes the reader on a photographic tour of the City, starting with Robben Island and Table Mountain, running through the City Centre, the Malay Quarter, Gardens and the Waterfront.

The West Coast, Stellenbosch and the Winelands are also featured ending with Hermanus, Gordons Bay and Cape Agulhas. Mark Skinner’s photography is outstanding, and all the photography featured has been specially commissioned for this book. Mark contributed most of the Cape material for the highly successful Scenic South Africa.
A concise introduction and extended captions are provided by Sean Fraser who wrote the text for Scenic South Africa, and Seven Days in Cape Town.

Dink mens aan Wes-Afrika, dink jy aan woestyn en kamele, Bedoeiene en swaar tekstielweefstof, silwer juweliersware en stomende speserye. Tog is daar naas die bykans mistieke idille-beeld mediaflitse van honger en armoede, politieke onstabiliteit en diktatorskap, vrees en verskrikking. As vryskutjoernalis in Dakar kry Louw die geleentheid om lande soos Senegal, Togo, Ghana, die Ivoorkus en Burkina Faso nie net as “toubab” (Westerling) en toeris te besoek nie, maar kry sy ook glimpse van die streek se hartklop: onreg, ongelykheid en onmag wat dekades na die val van kolonialisme nog die vinger wys na Europese hebsug ... maar ook die kuns, die kleur en die ritme van ’n leefstyl so diep verweef met die waai van die wind, die skakerings van sandduine en die val van die Afrika-son dat dit byna anderkant Westerse woordeskat le. Anderkant ’n eerste kyk. Anderkant Timboektoe.

Hazel Hendry is a remarkable woman. She worked tirelessly raising money for charities, and particularly for TEARFUND, including walking the form of a cross from John Oa Groats to Lands End and from Ramsgate to Fishguard in Wales. When the Croatian War began, the founder of TEARFUND, George Hoffman, told her, a Hazel, the people of Croatia need your helpa . So she raised money to send over 50 lorries, full of much needed supplies of food, furniture, medical equipment and toiletries, into Croatia. She travelled personally with many of them during and after the war. Hazel delivered aid right to the Front Line risking her life to help people who had lost their homes, livelihoods, and families. This book is about her experiences during those dangerous years, and the people who helped her and those that she helped. It is based on journals which she kept at the time and later recollections of particular people and events. As such, it is a vivid account of how the Croations in the War Zone suffered at the hands of the Chetniks who would attack their villages while leaving neighbouring villages in Croatia where Serbs lived unscathed. Some of the details that she recalls are not for the squeamish, but the way in which her faith supported her throughout this period shines through on every page.
Brother and sister Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn enjoyed a rare bond: they were intimate companions and theirs was one of the most significant musical relationships of the 19th century. They shared and commented on each other's compositions, each highly appreciative of the other but also offering frank, critical advice. Their travels produced some great music - Felix's best loved works, the Hebrides Overture and the Scottish Symphony, were inspired by his 1829 visit to Scotland, whilst Fanny's innovative piano cycle Das Jahr was a musical response to the tour of Italy she made in 1839-40. Combining letters and sketches with an accompanying narrative describing their journeys, this is a wonderful celebration of the two Mendelssohns and a portrait of Scotland and Italy of the time as seen through the eyes of two of the Romantic movement's most acclaimed composers.

Following Donald Trump's victory in the 2106 Presidential Election, Brooke Williams loaded his pack, stepped off his porch in Castle Valley, Utah, and walked across the desert into the Mary Jane Wilderness. He needed the clarity and perspective he'd come to depend on wilderness to give him. He needed time alone to ponder what had just happened, and forget, if just for two nights. Brooke needed to reorient, recalibrate, and make a plan to cope for with the new political landscape. He turned toward the wilds hoping it would absorb the darkness which had enveloped him. Following the 2020 Presidential Election, Brooke walked across the same desert, again into the Mary Jane Wilderness. He hoped that camping in the same wild place might help him see what had changed in four years, and more importantly, what had not. Although there were votes still to be counted, slivers of light hinted at a new administration. The possibility of a new president and restored democracy contributed to the lighter mood he carried. But, there was more. Evolution by its broadest definition, is not necessarily improvement, but "adaptation to changing conditions" and conditions have changed in America. Racial injustice has been exposed, political decorum abandoned, truth sacrificed for power, the environment for profit. Radically changing conditions require radical adaptation. For Americans, this is time for evolution. Evolution requires wildness. Mary Jane Wild is the story of how Brooke Williams adapted--evolved-- to four of the most tumultuous years in American history.
The ideal gift for puzzle book enthusiasts this Christmas. A challenging visual puzzle which will appeal to lovers of logic and deduction brain teasers. Use your mental agility to complete the grids using the train tracks. Puzzles included cover three levels of difficulty, 30 easy, 130 medium, 40 hard. How To Play: A map grid shows two towns, typically A and B. The objective of the puzzle is to lay down tracks to connect the two towns. Numbers around the outside of the grid tell you how many pieces of track are to be placed in each row and column. You can only use straight (horizontal and vertical) and curved (right and left) rails and the track cannot cross over itself. There is something very satisfying in the laying down of tracks. The puzzles are arranged in Easy, Medium and Hard, where difficulty is largely dependent on the size of the map grid (6x6, 8x8 and 10x10).
