Product Overview

Scorched is a vivid journey through southern Africa's mesmerising landscapes as climate change sets in. Another world exists somewhere beyond the global politicking of super-powers and petrostates. This is the place where a solitary bee continues to pollinate the pale, demure flower of an orchid near Darling, or where the limey coral skeleton hosts its colourful algae on a Sodwana reef. These plants and animals - many of them unique to the region - continue to do what their ancestors have done for millions of years. Yet the world is shifting its shape around them. Scorched gives powerful local colour to a global problem, and ponders the morality of the changes humankind has wrought and the future of life as we know it.
