More > "Dit is die Volkstaat". Sophie had heard of "biltong" but knew nothing of Afrikaans culture. She was aware of poachers, but not of the danger of sausage trees.

This upbeat true story, the sequel to her book 'Funnily Enough', is told through correspondence sent back and forth between Sophie Neville and her family in England. Armed only with a paintbrush, she set off on various adventures into the wilderness, to illustrate the beauty, diversity and warmth of the great continent.< Less
