JEWELS OF THE VELD (article first published : 2005-01-1)

Southern African Wild Flowers: Jewels of the Veld is written by by John Manning and Colin Peterson-Jones.

For anyone the slightest bit interested in the diverse and rich floral kingdom of Southern Africa this beautiful book is a must, for its magnificent photographs of the flowers and plants and excellent informative text.

Readers are taken through a journey, starting at the Zambezi River, down the eastern part of Southern Africa, the Cape fynbos then northwards to end in the arid lands of the west. Especially good is the emphasis on the environment in which the flowers grow with full-page photographs of the landscapes and botanical descriptions of the plants, their origins, adaptations, and interaction with other living organisms.

Southern African Wild Flowers: Jewels of the Veld is published by Struik and retails at R245. Sheina Wood
