Toasted Marshmallows & Obies - the ninth offering in a series of books - from adventurer, historian and raconteur Bartle Logie, departs somewhat from the pattern established in his previous books.

Here Logie offers an entertaining mixed bag of short, sharp stories - 72 of them.

Readers get a glimpse of his life and adventures as a young man in England and the Cape, as well as anecdotes from his childhood visits to the Lower Albany area in the Eastern Cape where his father was born and spent his early years.

Interspersed are acute, insightful and entertaining observations of the people, the rich history and the diverse flora and fauna of the Eastern Cape.

What has not changed in Logie’s research, both on the ground and from reference material, is his easy, personal story-telling style.

All in all, vintage Bartle Logie.
