THE LIVING DESERTS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA
by Barry Lovegrove
New Updated Edition 2021
Deserts hold a fascination all of their own. Delving into this incredible book one realises how alive the deserts of Southern Africa really are. Despite unpredictable rainfall and temperatures that can go from intense heat to extreme cold in a 24 hour period, it is amazing how much flora and fauna can survive. This fascinating, and beautifully presented large book, with facts and superb coloured photographs, maps, illustrations and detailed endnotes, answers so many questions, and raises concern about the longevity of these wilderness areas.
Barry Lovegrove, who calls himself ‘an evolutionary physiologist’ has undertaken field trips to these ‘living deserts’, his research is impeccable and his passion for his subject comes through in this very user-friendly and informative book.
