Geology off the beaten track follows on the success of author Nick Norman’s earlier Geological Journeys (co-authored with Gavin Whitfi eld), which has sold more than 20 000 copies in the last 6 years.

  • It features 13 detailed routes across the country, taking in geologically interesting areas such as the Richtersveld,Cape winelands and the Valley of Desolation near Graaff-Reinet.
  • The text is richly illustrated with photos and explanatory diagrams, making it suitable for armchair travellers too.
  • Maps for all the routes indicate key geosites, with GPS readings to pinpoint their location.    

This is a must-have handbook for travellers in the region, or for anyone wanting to know more about our rocks and landforms.
