A richly illustrated account one of the heart of the Kalahari Desert, one of the world s oldest a most beautiful historical sites: For 100,000 years, inhabitants of the Tsodilo Hills region left behind a record of their gathering wild foods, hunting, fishing, mining, rock painting, cattle herding, and metalworking, as well as of their participation in a coast-to-coast trade network. During the past 30 years, archaeologists, paleontologists, historians, and anthropologists have worked at Tsodilo. Here is the Tsodilo story, the Hills' revelations brought together in one volume, beautifully illuminated by more than 150 color plates and maps. For scientists, this work brings together decades of research at a site in the Kalahari that was virtually unknown until the late 1970s. TSODILO HILLS also offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Kalahari Desert to the general reader, as well as an unsurpassed guide to an extraordinary world to the desert's many tourists.
