ABOUT THE COVER:

The quiver tree is in fact a type of aloe, which can occur in forests. It has become a botanical symbol of the stark landscape of the dry north-west. This picture was taken near Klein Pella in the Gordonia district near the border between South Africa and Namibia. The bark and branches of the “Kokerboom� were used by early residents of the area to make quivers for their arrows. Photo: Sproetniek/iStock.
