Sundays - Tales from a Winding River
Bartle Logie, together with his wife Caryl, in this the sixth book in his series of historical travelogues through the Eastern Cape region of South Africa, undertakes a fascinating and informative journey along the course of the Sundays River, from its sources in the mountains north of Graaff-Reinet to the sea.
Their journey takes them from the top of the Lootsberg to the town of Graaff-Reinet, across the vast and arid plains to Jansenville, over the Zuurberg mountains into Kirkwood and The Valley, famous for its citrus orchards and mighty elephants, to the sand dunes of Algoa Bay.
In his inimitable story-telling style, Bartle recounts many a fascinating tale of people and places associated with the river, the waters of which form a common thread as it winds its way through their lives and events. And it is the water, too, that has been the focus of so many man-made changes in the environment of the river.
The book is well illustrated with historical photographs.
