Mountains In The Sea
takes the reader on an exploration of The Table Mountain National Park through a visual feast that tells the story of the mountain chain that defines Cape Town, dipping its toe into the ocean at Cape Point at its southern end, rising rugged and varied along its spine, and standing flat-topped and majestic to the north over the city bowl and Table Bay.
The book, with a short introductory text by award-winning environmental journalist John Yeld, explains the global biological significance of an area that lies at the heart of the Cape Floristic Region - a World Heritage Site - and that harbours more endemic floral species per square kilometre than any other in the world. In a highly accessible short essay, Yeld traces the struggle to have the park formally established and looks at the challenges it will face in the future.
The bulk of the book is a rich photographic journey that is complimented by a few short texts that explore the floral, animal, ecological, geological and social history of the mountain.
