For my birthday I got a wonderful book. The second print of "Neem uit die verlede from U de V Pienaar" It was a wondeful eye opener for me about all the history behind the KNP. I am still busy trying to work thru the book. When I read all the complaints and discussions on the forum, I wonder how many people know all the History behind the park. Many of their questions will be answered after reading this wonderful book. I think that a lot of forumates will stop complaining about the small peti that we read so often. :thumbs_up:

(@ Kaaskop: I'm changing the thread to reflect the name of the book.)

An employee of Protea Bookshop in Hatfield Pretoria phoned to inform me that the English translation version of the book "Neem Uit Die Verlede" is scheduled to become available within the next few months .

I will post any news as they have promised to inform me when it is available .

A classic Kruger book in my opinion. An all time Kruger-related favourite of mine.

Can anyone tell me where to find this book please?

You can also try their website I only saw the Afrikaans version on there but maybe contact them and ask about the English one.

I've also seen the Afrikaans title listed on kalahari.com and amazon.com

This remarkable book is now also available in English. Its called " A Cameo from the Past' At R750,00 it is not cheap, but a must have in any Kruger lover's arsenal. Over 740 pages, so it is not a field guide. Available from Kalahari.com.
