This book looks brand new. No tears or chips, no names or writing and dustjacket encased in brand new mylar cover.The photography of Cristobal Von Rothkirch is astoundingly beautiful and takes up the vast majority of the book, though there is a long essay at front by Juan Pablo Ruiz (in English), as well as chapter text by Carlos Mauricio Vega, again in English. The reader is led on an incredible journey through the Andes Mountains on a slow ascent that cover the villages in the foothills, the Andean forest, the high moorland, the upper high moorland, and the snow-capped peaks. There is also a chapter devoted to the mountain and man. You will take in farmland, the serenity of deep forests, transparent water, vast open spaces and endless sky. But you will also see up close the ecosystem of the high moorlands which is crucial to the conservation of water, as well as ancient glacial beds and perpetual snow. If you enjoyed the BBC production "The Planet Earth" you will love this book.Oversized at 12" tall.
