"This nicely sized book, covering a broad range of wildlife and plants, would be very useful for the tourist with a casual interest in natural history or the professional biologist who wants to become familiar with the diverse ecosystems of Chile."--D. Flaspohler, Choice
From the Inside Flap
"There is an embarrassment of riches in field guides, but truly novel approaches are rare. Sharon Chester's Wildlife Guide to Chile is one of the few books that stand out by virtue of their content, organization, and comprehensiveness. In a single, portable volume, Chester presents nearly every natural gem that Chile has to offer--richly illustrated, tersely described, and, in many cases, presented for the very first time in any field guide. Naturalists everywhere will recognize Chester's dedication to this project; travelers to Chile will simply gush with appreciation."--Edward S. Brinkley, editor-in-chief of the journal North American Birds
