Charles Michell, the first surveyor-general and civil engineer of the Cape, is remembered today mainly by the mountain-pass named after him - Michell's Pass. He arrived at the Cape in 1828 to take up his appointment, and spent the next twenty years working tirelessly at building roads, bridges and mountain passes. The Life and Work of Charles Michell by Gordon Richings uses previously inaccessible private diaries, sketchbooks and portraits in producing this masterful biography on a very talented man
