Visual Voyages: Images of Latin American Nature from Columbus to Darwin by Daniela Bleichmar

I was expecting a different type of book then what I got. The book is more or less marketed as a book of photos depicting Latin America. There are quite a few pictures don't get me wrong, but the pictures themselves do not really tell the story as with most photography books.

The book is interesting don't get me wrong. It is like a book of essays on the birth and life of Latin America Flora and Fauna. There are 4 chapters in this book. Each chapter covers a different time period ranging over 400 years.

The book may not of been what I was expecting but it is a good book just the same, once you change your mindset.
