Illustrated by Lynne Seitzer & John M.T. Seitzer
The Fynbos is just a tiny sliver of land at the southern tip of Africa, but with its strange and wonderful biodiversity (and its ability to survive terrible fires!), it may just be the mightiest floral region in the world. In this book, a child and adult set off to walk in what appears to be a dull scrubland but soon discover the bizarre shapes, flashes of brilliance, and the peculiar habits of the flowers nestled in the dry dry landscape. They cross the paths of birds, bugs, snakes, and animals that inhabit and help sustain the fynbos. Walk with them in this remote wildflower kingdom – a place few will visit but, through this book, many may come to love.
