In her book "The Namibia Reading Book", the author takes the reader on a journey of discovery through Africa's southwest. In doing so, she dives into the historical background of Namibia as well as its unique nature with its diverse wildlife, the people and the Namibian way of life. Authentic recipes highlight the culinary differences of the individual regions and can be recreated by readers to get a taste of Namibia. The Namibia Reading Book is neither a dry non-fiction book nor a travel guide. With her writing style, Almut Irmscher takes the reader by the hand and talks about people, experiences and places, which gives the reader the feeling of being there.
