Gavin Whitfield, "50 Must See Geological Sites of South Africa"
English | ISBN: 1920572503 | 2015 | EPUB | 320 pages | 144 MB

Southern Africa has just about the richest geological heritage on the planet this book shows where and why. It presents 50 of the most recognizable and geologically interesting sites around South Africa, including some of paleontological or historical renown and some of mining interest. The diverse selection includes sites such as Chapman s Peak, Howick Falls, Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens, Mapungubwe, the Tswaing meteorite crater and the Fraserburg Fossil Surface. Each geosite is unpacked to reveal its key features, geological heritage, landforms and rock formations, and topics of local or historical interest are included in text boxes. Maps and GPS pointers make the sites easy to find, and there are lists of what to see and do in the area. The text is supported throughout by numerous colour images and illustrations that explain some of the more complicated geology, making the book suitable for armchair travel too.
