“Back Roads of the Cape is great, packed with interesting tit-bits…it’s easy to use and will almost ensure that you don’t get lost, even though getting lost to some is all part of the trip…the photography is great… it’s jammed with interesting things to see and do and will make you want to get off the couch and get straight into your car and head for more pleasant pastures (and probably not come back!)…I lent the book to a friend of mine that went to the Cape recently and she loved it, the handy hints and contact numbers listed came in handy…excellent and informative book, really well written and packed full of everything needed to get you into exploring this wonderful country of ours.” – Lorimer Wilmot, www.jhblive.com
