S is for South Africa

Beverley Naidoo Prodeepta Das

About the book

“ S is for South Africa where two oceans meet,
cold Atlantic from the west and warm Indian from the east.
Our country stretches wide over Africa’ s southern shores
from golden beach to misty mountain, desert sand to grassy plain
in a land of contrasts where we praise the sun – yet pray for rain!”
From Cricket to Madiba, from Bunny Chow to Kubu, this photographic alphabet celebrates everything we South Africans love best about our country. Set at the southern end of the African continent, our beautiful land with its many different plants, animals, people and languages was once made ugly by racism. But now our rainbow nation is striving to make the country a fairer place for everyone.
