Andes by Mario Vargas Llosa

In 1995, Pablo Corral Vega began a journey that would take him the entire length of the Andes, the 5,000-mile chain of mountain ranges that extend from Patagonia to the shores of the Caribbean. For Corral Vega, who grew up in the shadow of the mountains in Ecuador, the journey was more than an adventureit was a quest for identity. Corral Vega presents the Andes and South America as a continent of geographic extremes and remarkable human diversity, and his journal entriesin which he describes his encounters with the inhabitants of Spanish America who live on the Andes slopesimbue these photographs with even greater depth. Readers are granted rare insight into the peoples who live by the grace of, or despite, the formidable mountain ranges that make up the Andes chain. Inspired by Corral Vegas photographs, Mario Vargas Llosa, reognized as one of the worlds great novelists, offers a lyrical tribute to the mountains he has known since childhood, through reminiscences real and imagined. Vargas Llosas insightspoetic, poignant, and wittyare paired with Corral Vegas powerful photography to create a moving and unforgettable taste of one of the most dramatic regions on Earth.
