The Orange River, a thin green line through an arid land, has supported life for many thousands of years. But its life giving resources have been ignored in histories of the region; and it has been known as little more than a convenient political boundary.
This multi-disciplinary volume describes the history, archaeology and physical anthropology of the aboriginal inhabitants along the river and in its hinterland. Ethnographic and architectural studies look at their modern descendants in ecological context, and provide continuity between past and present
