Authors Steve Moseley & Brent Naudé live in the Karoo where they’ve spent the past eight years writing and photographing this and neighbouring regions. During this time they have developed a great love and respect for its natural and historical heritage, people and culture - all of which have opened their eyes to a simpler lifestyle and different values.
