Item description for unseen Colombia by Andres Hurtado Garcia...
"To live in a tent, to invent trails, to dream of immensities, to spy , then reach far horizons; to flee from the destiny of the sedentary, to love the supreme freedom of the nomad above all... This is the life!"
Geography is a mirror: every nation sees itself first in its natural places. Here is a naturalist-photographer's "mirrors," his country's most beautiful faces: Hurtado is an eco-wanderer, a South American Edward Weston and John Burroughs, a self-taught, nomadic artist. He shows us what he has seen: hidden beaches, remote lakes, and unnamed volcanic craters; the little-explored rivers of the scorching Amazon; cryptic hieroglyphics graven on giant rocks by ancient aboriginal cultures; and the seductive landscapes of the Orinoco-many locations known only to Hurtado.
For those who love truly wild places, and photography through nature's eye, this is a new horizon.

Absolutely Beautiful Oct 5, 2006
Colombia's beauty is exposed at its most: mountains, rivers, deserts, forests... its varied ecosystems -- from the rich tropical rainforest to the coastal cloud forests to the open savannas.
Great view of Colombia Jul 28, 2005
Living in Colombia for a year I found this book to show areas of Colombia I have seen and then some. It is one if not the most beautiful country in the world. Colombia has a bad rep, don't let the American press fool you, look at this book and let it be the start of your search for the real Colombia, one of passions, diversity and paridise. The stories go well with the pictures to paint a picture that can draw one in.
