Around South Africa in eighteen days: A photographic journey

Johnson, M

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

An Arabian horse holds a special fascination to all those who love horses. Arabian horses are known for their beauty, elegant movement and the noble demeanour they display. On the other hand their toughness and their ability to endure in difficult circumstances are also well known. But how did this breed become a household name in South Africa, thousands of miles away from their Middle East, their place of origin? Charmaine Grobbelaar answers this question as she tells the story of how the Arabian horse came to South Africa and the role they played in shaping the history of the country.
The book also contains useful information on different studs, breeders and the pedigrees of famous Arabian horses. Rare photographs of many Arabian horses ensure that this publication holds the attention of all those interested in horses.


Mike Johnson is a geologist who has been working for the Geological Survey of South Africa (now the Council for Geoscience) since 1964. With a Ph.D. from Rhodes University, he spent the early part of his career based in Grahamstown doing geological mapping and research in the Eastern Cape and Karoo, but subsequently moved to the head office in Pretoria where he and his wife, Des, still live. He has contributed to various geological maps and official publications of the Council for Geoscience, as well as scientific papers for local and international journals. As senior editor he played a major role in compiling The Geology of South Africa, a comprehensive reference work on South African geology published in mid-2007. He has also written Genesis, Geology and Catastrophism, which explores the relationship between the biblical and scientific accounts of creation, and joined forces with his botanist son Steven for an article on the Cape Drakensberg in Getaway magazine.
