Item description for Patagonia: El ultimo confin de la naturaleza by Marcos Zimmermann & Tomas Eloy Martinez...
This inspiring, nearly mystical, photographic journey through the one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world traverses the whipped plateau and the extreme coasts, the transparent sea and the highest peaks, and the creatures of the profoundly isolated region of Patagonia. An accompanying essay discusses the region and the photography with lyricism and respect and appears in both Spanish and English.
Este viaje visual, inspirador y a veces mstico, pasa por una de las regiones ms espectculares del mundo: la Patagonia. Desde la meseta variada hasta las costas extremas, el mar transparente hasta las cumbres ms altas, estas fotografas encapsulan la belleza de la tierra, la fauna de una regin tan aislada y los remanentes humanos casi invisibles. El ensayo complementario que discute la regin y la fotografa con pasin y lirismo aparece tanto en ingls como espaol.

Reviews - What do customers think about Patagonia: El ultimo confin de la naturaleza?
Wonderful images and amazing descriptive text Jan 30, 2007
This hard cover book is an amazing item to either purchase and give as a gift to somebody who loves to travel and has never been in Argentina, or as a focal point in a coffee table or side table. Inside, the images bring the best of the Patagonia: Its desert areas, glaciares, woods; it shows a side of Argentina that not every body has the pleassure of knowing. I was born and raised in Argentina and I've never been there. If you are interested in still nature photogrphy, this is a great book for you. Something to look forward to and to be surprised at every turn of the page.
