“The author spent seven memorable years as State Forester in charge of the Kogelberg mountain catchment Reserve in the 1970’s, where he experienced at first hand the epic and conservational saga to rescue the rare Mountain Rose from extinction. He takes us into the heart of the Kogelberg with graphic descriptions of the scenery and flora enabling us to smell the smoke of the fires and hear the roar of the flames. “
“These mountains are famous for the floral diversity of Cape Fynbos, with the Mountain Rose occupying the centre stage.
The Kogelberg is now a Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site.”
