South African Riches: Diamond and Gold Industry (South Africa Travel,Gia Diamonds,Emerald Cut Diamonds,Pink Diamond Ring)

by Tom Stewart

South African Riches: Diamond and Gold Industry.

This Book Walks You through the Diamond and Gold industry in the Republic of South Africa.

South Africa is a land of contrasts, and beneath the amazingly varied landscape lies the richest mineral treasure trove man has ever unearthed in a confined region. The country is bed to almost every precious metal, stone and mineral on the periodic table albeit in varying degrees: from miniscule traces to quantities of untold value.
Mineral exploitation in the southernmost state of Africa dates back to the Stone Age but modern commercial mining can be traced circa 1852 when the first copper mine was established on the Springbokfontein farm (modern day town of Springbok) in the region of Namaqualand in the Northe...

Still Owing Me Goodbye

by Obehi Peter Ewanfoh

The story takes place, geographically, in Esan, south of Nigeria. It’s a book which drags us into that part of Africa, where the young narrator (Ẹhizoya) makes us understand, not only his pain as a result of his grandmother’s death, but also his sentiments and his childhood fantasies – his friends, the exciting New Yam Festival, the dance of masquerades, the cultivation of land, the family reunion, and the future that will come.It’s a book that helps us jump into the pool of our own past memories, our infant dreams, already forgotten along the way, as we grow older and face the different challenges of life. Yes, we can grow up, but not all of our childhood experiences/fantasies will ever grow with us. For some memories we have never really said goodbye....

by Joseph Conrad

Commando: A Boer Journal of the Boer War

by Deneys Reitz

Deneys Reitz was 17 when the Anglo-Boer War broke out in 1899. Reitz describes that he had no hatred of the British people, but "as a South African, one had to fight for one's country." Reitz had learned to ride, shoot and swim almost as soon as he could walk, and the skills and endurance he had acquired during those years were to be made full use of during the war. He fought with different Boer Commandos, where each Commando consisted mainly of farmers on horseback, using their own horses and guns. Commando describes the tumult through the eyes of a warrior in the saddle. Reitz was fortunate to be present at nearly every one of the major battles of the war. Commando is a straightforward narrative that describes an extraordinary adventure and brings us a vivid, unforgettable picture of mob...
