Adventurer, historian and raconteur Bartle Logie explores the byways of the beautiful Eastern Cape in this his 11th Eastern/Western Cape travel book.
“For the greater part of our lives Caryl and I have travelled the roads and walked the veld of the Eastern Cape. Both of our fathers were born here, Caryl’s in Cala in what was the then Transkei, and mine on a farm just west of Port Alfred in what was then the Lower Albany District.
“During our travels we have met with shop-keepers and shepherds, labourers and lay-abouts, conservationists and con-men, farmers and financiers and many more. Some make an appearance in the pages of this book.”
This is how adventurer, historian and raconteur Bartle Logie introduces this, his 11th Eastern/Western Cape travel book. However, in true Bartle fashion, you can be assured that it is not only people, interesting as they are, who appear in the book, but special places, events, plants and animals.
Behind every story is meticulous research, both the desk- bound and real on-the-ground varieties – Bartle Logie
The trusty trio – Bartle, Caryl and the Isuzu bakkie – continue to criss-cross this wonderful region to keep us entertained with its history, people and spectacular beauty.
