About this book

This book describes a year-long journey, made by wilderness artist Paul Augustinus, through the rich diversity of landscapes of the desert country of the Namib and the Kalahari. Infused with the spirit of adventure, it is an odyssey in search of southern Africa's last remnants of unspoiled and untamed wilderness. The author's own story is enlivened and given substance by the inclusion of narratives from the explorers of the past, one of whom described travelling in Africa as requiring `the endurance of a camel and the courage of a lion.'
