The book is a collection of photographs and words that an insider’s view of the Karoo.
JOHANNESBURG - One of South Africa's most successful independent publishing ventures, Karoo Keepsakes II has been described as more than a book.
As author Chris Marais described it on the Jenny Crwys Williams Show, "it's a traveller's companion and a dedication to the people and the places that make up the dry Heartland of South Africa".
Marais and co-author Julienne du Toit both permanently live in the Karoo.
The book is a collection of photographs and words that give the reader an insider's view of what's to be found under the seemingly flat vastness of the Karoo.
Du Toit said the Karoo is a fascinating place.
"There are interesting developments happening in the Karoo and the people are storytellers and hospitable."
