Synopsis: Patagonia, the vast remote region at the southernmost tip of South America, is one of the last truly wild places on this planet. The natural habitat of hundreds of wild species -- from killer whales and elephant seals to penguins and albatrosses -- it is one of the world's great showcases of wildlife. For two years, photojournalist Jasmine Rossi lived on the Valdes Peninsula, the center of this coastal life zone, along with a handful of wildlife biologists, and she photographed the animals interacting in ways never before documented.
Rossi's astonishing images and spine-tingling first-person accounts of her adventures provide a unique window on the life-and-death struggles faced daily on Patagonia's rugged shores and ferocious seas.
Product Description: Patagonia, on the southern tip of South America, is one of the world's greatest wildlife habitats. This book is an illustrated window on the life-and-death struggles of the wild animals that live there, including photographs of killer whales, elephant seals, penguins and albatrosses.
