    The authors’ work is a never-ending quilt, stitched in place with sensitivity and delight, and one that invites us to revel in all the people and all the places of our country’s heart, and kick up our heels in its glorious, gritty dust.

    A few months ago I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa, and found the most amazing book called Karoo Keepsakes. What a beautiful, brilliant book. Here in Holland I have re-read it many times. One just cannot put a book like this down, it just captures your heart!

    Karoo Keepsakes I & II were the two best reads in a long time. I shall always treasure those two electronic books. Kind regards Mark

    In Karoo Keepsakes and Karoo Keepsakes II (also available in Afrikaans as Knapsak vol Karoo I and II) you’ll meet musicians, sculptors, collectors, healers, rogues, quilters and karretjie people. You’ll learn to appreciate creatures like Karoo sheep, meerkats, tortoises, giant earthworms, ostriches (which they describe as ‘Karoo sock-puppets’) and donkeys that are part of the family. One chap loved his big-eared donkeys so much, they tell us, that he’d play the fiddle for them in the evenings.

    You’ll also delve into the charm of the land of flood and drought, wind pumps, leiwater furrows, quiver trees and prickly pears, of heritage roses, fossils, matjieshuise and the Nama Riel. And if you’re up for more fun, let the authors escort you to festivals like AfrikaBurn or the dusty madness of the Williston Winter Festival.
