The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:

Brendan Ryan’s 52 day-walks in and around Johannesburg & Pretoria by Brendan Ryan.

In this handy book, Brendan Ryan, a keen walker and enthusiastic bird-watcher, guides you on day walks in 52 public parks and bird sanctuaries, near dams and along river trails in and around Johannesburg and Pretoria. For your enjoyment of the Witwatersrand and its environs, Ryan’s succinct notes include a detailed description of each walk; a clear routes map; an estimate of the time you need; the flora and fauna you are likely to see; what facilities are available and when they are open.

Although now relatively old, this book is sure to still be interesting for day-adventurers.
