New in HOORC's Library: The Remarkable Baobab
Thomas Pakenham's The remarkable baobab is a pictorial survey of the Adansonia genus, accompanied by snippets of historical and ethnographic context and personal travel anecdotes. Two of the sites mentioned in the book are in our part of Botswana: Chapman's Baobab on the Ntetwe pan, and the trees at Kubu Island in the Makgadikgadi. For the researcher, there is an index and bibliography. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
