Land of Contrast delights with the photographic collection of bold and beautiful images. The book depicts the renowned diversity of the different landscapes and life within the eight biomes of the southern African sub-continent. Each of these landscapes, called biomes, are the result of its geology and climate, which determine the soil and vegetation types and eventually the fauna. Life on land is determined by the availability of fresh water and therefore rivers and wetlands form an intrinsic part of each biome. The biomes vary from Fynbos, Succulent Karoo, Nama Karoo, Desert, Grassland, Savanna, Thicket and Forest. The major landscape is the Savanna Biome and the most unique the Fynbos Biome. The introduction to each chapter is a short summary of the main factors that determine the nature of each biome. Then follows a list of places for the traveller where the specific biome is evident. The pages are not cluttered with captions. These are reserved for the last page in the chapter where the images are repeated in thumbnail sizes together with relevant information about each image, what it illustrates and how it fits into the bigger picture.
