A-Z Place Names of South Africa is a wonderful journey through South Africa. Ann Gadd particularly enjoyed researching the smaller villages and places. There is a wide variety of attractions across the places, covering sporting interests, places to eat, historical interest, scenic spots, the longest, the tallest, the coldest and much more. Ann connected with local inhabitants or officials to get their take on the naming of their town or historical interests. All this wonderful (and sometimes whacky) information is condensed to give you a book that sums up the very core of each place.
