PATNAT

NATURAL PATAGONIA / PATAGONIA NATURAL: Argentina & Chile
by Marcelo D. Beccaceci

With prologue by
Victoria Lichtschein, National Wildlife Director
Secretary of Natural Resources, Argentina

"Patagonia . . . the name speaks of metaphysical images:
infinite horizons, absolute solitude, legends of tribes
that survive only within our memory. This book by Marcelo Beccaceci
reminds us that Patagonia is also a magnificent gathering
of natural habitats where life conceals itself, anxious,
inviting us to travel it."

Javier Corcuera
General Director, Argentine Wildlife Foundation
Associate, World Wildlife Fund for Nature

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.
