This book was recommended by Marcelo Lafuerte, my Chilean guide in Elqui Valley, when on holiday in February. He carries this book (the English version) everywhere, it's his wildlife "bible". On my return to UK discovered that this was out of print. However, found it on Amazon (where else) and bought it. Very few books printed in English on the subject - so essential reading before, during and after any trip to Chile. I have been able to identify lots of things since; birds, animals, plants etc. seen in other parts of Chile. A very handy reference book and whilst not pocket sized, small enough to pack in the suitcase. I will certainly take it with me on any future trips.
