About this book

In evocative photographs and accompanying text, this book crisscrosses southern Africa - from the Kalahari Desert and Drakensburg Mountains to the Skeleton Coast and Zambesi River - to reveal its diverse populations and wildlife and highlight their often unacknowledged interdependence. Johns' superb photographs of wildlife, including cheetahs, rhinos, and elephants, and his sensitive portraits of Himba pastoralists, San Bushmen hunter-gatherers, Zulu farmers, and other populations are combined with Godwin's lyric stories. The result is a finely detailed yet panoramic image of southern Africa that underscores the indissoluble connections between all its elements and speculates on the prospects for a future based on understanding those connections.
