Chile stretches along the Pacific coast of South America, west of the Andes, and is the longest country in the world from north to south. The contrasting landscape offers the Atacama Desert in the north—the driest area on earth—and in the south are rainforests, lake landscapes, and glaciers. More than 400 photographs present this country from north to south with its fascinating world of desert landscapes, volcanoes, glaciers, and a rich flora and fauna.
