It appears to be a new book about Kruger. I quote;

"As its title suggests, the book is meant to be to be used as a field guide.It is based on the 60 identified historical sites and the text is designed to compliment the information plaques. Some of the people and events described here are well known, such as Harry Wolhuter's run-in with two lions and Colonel Stevenson-Hamilton's contribution to Kruger. But there is a cast of pioneers, rogues, leaders and heroes that will be new to many Kruger visitors. The book is self-published and contain black-and-white images, many of which give a fascinating glimpse into a world that is long gone."

This may be a useful addition to anyone's shelves.
