Reviews

 

 

“I read a book once which described mountains as living museums of our planet’s history. But to understand what the exhibits represent we have to learn a new language. Prof Compton…is eloquent in that language, and has done us a great service by providing this slim but rich volume to interpret our environment to us in words we can all understand.”

Cape Times

“No doubt we are in good hands as John Compton gives us a basic introduction to the environment we find around us. But Rocks & Mountains is not only a guide for today – it is also a natural history of Table Mountain…This is not a handy guide for hikers, but a small text book to read before you venture forth.”
