This full-colour guide to the wildlife of the High Andes in Peru will appeal to the ardent wildlife enthusiast, curious tourist and armchair traveller alike. Some of the hotspots covered are Machu Picchu, Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the Inca Trail, the Avenue of the Volcanoes in Ecuador, and Lake Titicaca in Bolivia. With additional sections on geography, geology and a chapter covering the best trekking areas, this book is the perfect companion for anyone wishing to enhance their trip by bettering their understanding of the high-altitude ecology of Peru and its neighbours. This, the only such guidebook presently on the market, gives a detailed description of all animals (insects, fish, birds, mammals...) encountered in the Andes above 3,000 metres. The most commonly found plants are also covered. Bradt's fully illustrated wildlife guides focus on regions of the world particularly celebrated for their amazing and often unique species. With spectacular photography or exclusive watercolour drawings throughout, each visitors' guide provides an introduction to the region's principal flora and fauna alongside suggested wildlife itineraries, practical information on when to go and what to take and photography tips. Written in a deliberately engaging way, they offer something different from dry field guides, and will appeal to the interested layman as much as the wildlife devotee. Ideal as a lightweight companion to any wildlife trip they also make a handsome souvenir.
