A Guide to Wild South America.
Michael Bright's tour of this land of extremes takes us from the glacial peaks of the massive Andes to the vast Amazonion Basin, south across the endangered cerrado grasslands of Brazil to the windswept Patagonian steppe and finally around the wild west coast of Chile. Among the wildlife specialities are fish that leap out of the water to breed, antelope-sized rodents that wallow in mud, tiny marsupials that live in bamboo thickets and cactus-nesting penguins.
With stunning pictures by some of the world's best wildlife photographers and unique aerial shots taken by aviator cameraman Bob Fulton, 'Andes to Amazon' provides inspiration for both the armchair traveller and the would-be explorer.
