About this book

Namibia's Skeleton Coast, once feared for its treachery to seafarers, is now prized as a wilderness and area of great beauty. This book covers all aspects of the coast's intrigues - from the geology and elusive minerals, which originally made the area famous, to descriptions of the plants and animals that have adapted to life in a place without water, as well as a history of man's efforts to battle this hostile environment.
