Quiver Trees are also known as kokerboom, and are a species of aloe indigenous to South Africa, specifically in the Northern Cape region, and Namibia. Its name was derived from the common practice of the Kalahari San Bushmen of hollowing out the tubular branches and bark to make quivers for their arrows. These trees are very rugged and are among the very few plants that survive in the dry, avid desert.

“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
