Traveller's Joy - a Journey into the Eastern Karoo
Travel with Bartle Logie as he follows the first railway line north from the shores of Algoa Bay to historical towns and quiet corners that help make up the eastern Karoo - towns like Uitenhage, Jansenville, Aberdeen. Klipplaat. Graaff-Reinet and beyond.
As you journey you will discover that the author often gets 'sidetracked' as he visits out-of-the-way places, uncovering fascinating tales about the events and people connected with them, from prehistoric times to today.
You will read about disasters and celebrations, learn from railwaymen, botanists and Karoo farmers, take a peek into a unique natural wonderland and stay awhile to converse with the locals, many of whom have some intriguing stories to tell of years gone by.
