View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In the fall of 1994, a group of friends-including three artists-traveled to Bolivia to see a total solar eclipse and to visit remote regions of the altiplano-mountainous areas of the Cordillera Real, Cordillera Apolobamba and the Sud Lípez. This story, The Ghosts of Licancabur, takes place during the third week of the trip, after the eclipse viewing and beginning at the end of the paved road. It is based on journal entries and the hazy, romanticized recollections of the author. The paintings by Maria Henle and Janet Morgan were created after the trip based on visual memory and photo references. The painting by Gregory Frux was based on a smaller version painted in oils on site amid blowing dust and later photo references. Maria's essays about her paintings are taken from the exhibition catalog "In the Andes," which she authored.
