Hidden Karoo

Big skies. Vast plains. Scrubby bushes and hardy trees. Flat-topped mountains and conical hills and secluded valleys. The Karoo. A place where dreams are born, legends are made, and outcasts find sanctuary.

A place where human lineage predates any written history, whose story is revealed through geology, fossils and artefacts. Those of us who’re lucky enough to have travelled through and stayed in the Karoo know its beauty … a beauty that’s been captured through a series of astonishing photo-essays in Hidden Karoo.

This coffee-table book offers readers a snapshot of the region, with a glimpse into towns and villages, farms and churches, public buildings and private homes, all against a backdrop of awe-inspiring landscapes.

Patricia Kramer and Alain Proust’s book will delight fans of the area … and tempt those who’ve never been to explore the incredible Karoo (which derives from the Khoekhoe word karus, meaning dry, barren or thirsty land). It’s a book you’ll spend hours reading, with fascinating new facts on every page. Magnificent! Struik.
