(eTN) – My friend Gill Staden, and fellow eTN ambassador, well known for the regular content featured in “The Livingstone Weekly,” has outdone herself, when her first “big book” titled “Beyond the Victoria Falls” was published the other day and put on the shelves of bookstores in South Africa, before reaching Zambia, Zimbabwe, and the other countries mentioned in her lastest work.
Gill, an ardent writer and fellow “safari afficionado,” has spent much of her recent years driving around Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, and other parts of Southern Africa, and has truly not just seen it all but been able in her book to show us readers her experiences and create the “taste for more,” hopefully attracting more visitors to Zambia, the falls area on both sides of the river and the wider region.
A resident in Livingstone, Zambia, for the last 20 years with an almost equal time previously in Nigeria and Botswana, Gill, like few others, captures the sights of the magnificent Victoria Falls of the Zambezi River and has plenty of stories to tell her readers, making the effort all worth the while to order the book, available now under ISBN 978-1-77007-856-7.
More details are available from the publishers via firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting the website of RHS – Random House Struik at www.randomstruik.co.za .
Many sales should make for happy smiles all raound, not just at Gill, but also for the regular recipients and readers of “The Livingstone Weekly,” which she produces week in and week out with a passion as I myself know only too well. Congrats Gill for a piece of art, because that is what it is, a piece of art, passion, and love for Africa.
