Hi There.
I am looking for a copy of :
Raptor Identification Guide for Southern Africa.
Authors: Ulrich Oberprieler & Burger Cillie
Publisher: Random House

It seems to be out of print at the moment but is a wonderful book. Any ideas where I might find a copy?

Thanks
pjw

It might help if you tell us where you are.

I have seen it in one of the local shops and will look again.

Maybe all the sleeping Gauties can help you find it in a store there.

Now where have I seen that book before..... :hmz: on my bookshelf :wink:
I bought mine at Exclusive Books a while ago. They are very good at locating books and ordering them. Maybe you can try them if you don't find one in the meantime.
Great book... I can highly recommend it!

Hi Dotdan
Try Exclusive Books at Greenstone mall in Edenvale. They had quite a good range a couple of weeks ago when I was there :roll:

Pjw. I`ll PM you with a tel. nr. of a person in Krugerdorp (whatever it is called now) who runs a nature based bookshop and who ought to have it.
