And how many of the concerns of a century ago (over-development, automobile traffic, over-fishing) persist! Also interesting are the people and places lost to history, but whose tales live on in current Cape museums, books, and tourist attractions. Descriptions of Cape towns are beautifully written, and accompanying sketches are lovely." Reviewer. Very clean contents.; B&W Illustrations; 12mo; 239 pages
