Legendary Patagonia, the southernmost region of the Americas, is shown in rich photographs by Argentine naturalist Marcelo Beccaceci. Written in Spanish and English throughout, the book takes readers on a panoramic journey through one of the world's most magnificent and varied landscapes, explaining its formation and the remarkable animals and flora that thrive in the rugged reaches of Argentina and Chile. From the snow-crested peaks of the Andes through arid Argentine steppe lands, deep into the Chilean fjords, the imagery astounds. Beccaceci's reverence for the native wildlife, the focus of his life's work as a conservationist, brings the intimate details of NATURAL PATAGONIA to an international audience. Written in Spanish-English bilingual parallel text and illustrated with 120 color photographs and two maps, the book is fully indexed and includes scientific names.

From the Publisher:

Ten years ago when I first visited Patagonia, I knew it needed to have a book dedicated to its splendor and rich wildlife. That dream became Patagonia Wilderness, the first book on Patagonia for PANGAEA by author and photographer Marcelo Beccaceci. Natural Patagonia is his second for us, and includes both the Argentine and Chilean portions in one volume for the first time. This new book also has bilingual Spanish/English parallel text throughout, making it entirely accessible throughout Latin America as well as to North America and Europe. Patagonia is a world-class destination and truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. We hope you enjoy it.
