South America's story is as varied as its geography of soaring mountains, scorching deserts, and lush rainforests. In Ecuador alone, there are 25,000 sorts of plants, 1,500 species of birds, 4,500 different butterflies, and 300 mammals! Replete with Andrej Krystoforski's vibrant illustrations, maps, an index, and bibliography, In the Land from the Jaguar: South America and Its People is a fascinating, colorful journey of exploration and discovery. The data she offers ranges from “ the Requirement” (a document read out by the conquistadors each time they came upon a new group of indigenous men and women to justify their actions) to drug cartels, from the hidden and secretive Elders (a civilization that retreated for the mountains to preserve its customs and now considers itself the “ guardian from the world”) to Gabriel Garcí a Má rquez. Gena K. Gorrell's brilliant text combines an often tragic history with each of the problems and triumphs of the present.
