Description

Only a century ago, Kolmanskop was a diamond boomtown. The town produced more than a million carats a year! But what happened to Kolmanskop after the diamond boom fizzled? This high-interest title explores the rise of Kolmanskop and its slow decline back into empty desert. Special features such as a map, a timeline, and unique fun facts add to this fascinating title.
