Think of South America, and exotic images of the colourful people, the vast Amazon rainforests, the high peaks of the Andes, the plains of the Pampas and the wilds of Patagonia spring to mind. Today South America is home to some of the largest cities in the world, along with rugged wilderness, where turquoise glaciers creak and groan into almost frozen fjords. Ominous snow-covered volcanoes belch their sulphurous lavas skywards as llamas, alpacas and vicunas graze on the sparse grasslands. The rainforests are rapidly being decimated in the quest for agriculture and pasturelands for the cowboys of the rolling plains. Depicting our journeys over more than three decades across the South American continent, this pictorial guide brings to life the history and culture, geography and geology, and above all the people of South America in a very personal way.
