You are invited to come on a journey with us into the Karoo, South Africa’s vast semi-desert Heartland. In Karoo Collection, there is no charge. We want you to catch a glimpse of what lies in store for you in Karoo Keepsakes I and II, 101 Karoo Towns and our new Afrikaans translations, Knapsak vol Karoo I and II.

The Keepsakes series has been in print for some time now, has won awards and reached best-seller status. But more importantly, the books have become much-beloved with readers and travellers who feel an attachment to the Karoo.

Now it is our pleasure to bring you these publications – and many others – in Ebook format. We hope to make your Karoo journey – in an armchair or behind the wheel of an overland vehicle – the trip of a lifetime. Hop in the back of our bakkie and enjoy the ride.

Kind regards,

Chris Marais & Julienne du Toit

    ‘Karoo Collection’ is like that infamous wardrobe to Narnia: an unassuming access point to a wry, wise and witty world. Revealed with love, humour and deep empathy by experts on the subject. All the subjects.

    Yes, this little title is a marketing brochure: of course Chris and Jules want you to be enticed into buying one of their other books (which you can very niftily do by clicking through direct from the book to the bookstore.) But it’s far more than that: it’s a generous dollop of their writing, photography and insight. So much of which they hand out for free, both in this ebook and on their website.

    Here’s to rich journeys. Of body, mind and spirit. Literally and figuratively. In print and e.

    Die Karoo is nie so seer ‘n plek nie as ‘n ervaring, ‘n vervoering. Aanvanklik voel mens miskien dat jy ‘n gas hier is, maar dis nie van lange duur nie. Binnekort voel jy dat jy hier hoort. Dis maklik. Gemaklik.

    As jy op ‘n koue wintersoggend so teen die sonnetjie sit en doer in die verte uitstaar – jy weet mos, jy fokus in op niks besonders nie maar alles blyk in fokus te wees – word jy tegelyktydig bewus van die oerheid om jou en van die oermens in jouself. En dit ook is gemaklik. Dit pas soos ‘n handgebreide trui.

    Dit is hoe dit voel om Chris en Jules se handgebreide boeke te lees, te proe en te geniet. Soos eerlike wyn, hoef jy nie ‘n fynproewer te wees om die pure genot daarin te vind nie. Hul hartstog skyn deur soos glansende sonstrale en jy ervaar die warm, ondubbelsinnige eerlikheid van mense wat tuisgekom het. Die fotos jubbel en neurie, verstom en verwelkom, verduidelik en verbuister. Die woorde is soos ‘n rivier wat jou saamdra op sy strome en ‘n nuwe wonder om elke draai ontbloot.

    Nou is hierdie ervaringe ook in die jongste tegnologie beskikbaar. As e-boeke is Chris en Jules se werke en hartstog toeganklik en verbasend. Maklik en gemaklik.

    Stories and pictures you can smell and taste. I find myself hearing the voices of the people you write about, chuckling out loud sometimes. I love the realness of what you produced. – Melina Smit
