Skeleton Coast

Schoeman, A

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

The Skeleton Coast of Namibia  an area once feared and shunned because of its treacherous coastline  is now prized as a place of beauty and tranquillity, a place of magnificent solitude. Apart from the explorers, prospectors and miners drawn to the Skeleton Coast by its legendary mineral wealth, only small groups of people have visited this protected area in north-western Namibia, and its mystery remains largely intact. It is undoubtedly high on the list of the world’s most unusual, fascinating and scenically beautiful places.
Through her captivating photographs and absorbing text, Amy Schoeman shares with the reader the strange beauties of her life’s passion. The superb photographs capture the life of the desert, its forms and colours, and the moods of its ever-changing landscapes, while the text details the geology, climate, richly diverse plant and animal life, the pattern of its history  from the early Portuguese explorers to the many mining ventures of the previous century and the proclamation of the area as a park in 1971.
Originally published in 1984 and reprinted seven times with a total print-run of over 30 000, this magnificent book has been updated, redesigned, and republished in an artistically modernised format by Venture Publications, Namibia and Protea Book House, South Africa.



Amy Schoeman is based in Windhoek working as a freelance photographer/writer and editor. She has exhibited her photographs in numerous exhibitions in Namibia. Many of the photographs in this book were taken during trips into the park with her late husband, Louw Schoeman, to whom the book is dedicated. She is particularly concerned with the conservation of the Skeleton Coast as a wilderness area and the need to protect it against man’s encroachment.
