Life and Death in the Andes
In his new meditation on South America, Life and Death in the Andes, Kim MacQuarrie (The Last Days of the Incas) follows the spine of the world's longest mountain chain, exploring the lives of legendary characters like Charles Darwin, Pablo Escobar and Che Guevara. Picking through remnants and ruins, he muses on indigenous cultures' disappearance and searches for the true uniqueness of the South American continent. Each chapter works as an extended essay on a historical figure, such as Hiram Bingham and his strained relationship with the Peruvians after his discovery of Machu Picchu.
