Omtale: Burning Table Mountain
This is an environmental history of humans and wildfire on the Cape Peninsula, from the practices of Khoikhoi herders to the conflagrations of January 2000. The book examines how the region's unique, famously diverse fynbos vegetation has been transformed since European colonial settlement, through urbanisation and biological modifications.
