Item description for Patagonia: Land Of Giants by Daniel Rivademar, Alejandro Winograd, Ana Elena Mallet, Linda Collister & Felipe Fuentes Cruz...

Throughout the early age of discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries, Patagonia, the southernmost region of South America, held a special place in explorers' imaginations. Named "Terra Australis quae incognita est" on maps, this "unknown land" was believed to host landscapes, peoples, and wildlife unlike anything else on Earth.

Today, the real Patagonia -- encompassing a million square kilometers of Argentina and Chile from the Colorado River in the north to Cape Horn in the south -- still embraces a landscape largely unspoiled by development and filled with diverse wildlife and natural beauty.

Patagonia: Land of Giants captures the wonders of the Patagonian landscape in hundreds of stunning color photographs by famed Argentine nature photographer Daniel Rivademar. The accompanying text by biologist Alejandro Winograd vividly portrays the unrivalled features of this still-wild land -- its unique animals, stunning vistas, and local culture.

Reviews - What do customers think about Patagonia: Land Of Giants?

With an excellent history & commentary by Alejandro Winograd  Jul 9, 2004
Take a range of coffee-table-quality, vivid color photos (ala Daniel Rivademar), add an excellent history and commentary by Alejandro Winograd, and package it in a lively overview of its history and people and you have the compelling Patagonia: Land Of Giants. Few titles have referred to this remote land in depth, much less focused on the ongoing ecological and environmental issues affecting the region. A generous display of color illustration and coverage of indigenous plants, birds, mammals and so much more make Patagonia: Land Of Giants far more than just another pretty coffee table overview title.
