Product description

Review

Sets the pace for the rest to follow. --Michael Palin

The South American Handbook shows why the printed travel guide will never die. It is so much more than a guidebook full of listings - it is an organic repository of nearly a century of courageous and serendipitous exploration. --Simon Calder, Senior Travel Editor, The Independent

I took the 1990 edition of the SAH - a lovely little brick of a book with a jaguar on the front - with me when I went to live in Buenos Aires and took it all over Argentina with me on my many trips. For all its listings and facts, I never really thought of it as a practical guide; for me it was more of a dream-Bible, the wispy thin pages full of possibilities of travel and exploration. It got nicked when I was in Salta and I was inconsolable. --Chris Moss, The Telegraph

5.0 out of 5 stars So much information! 28 Jan. 2017
By Alison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is a LOT of information in here. The pages are thin and the text is small and there is so much info about everything. I didn't realize it'd have so many actual recommendations for actual places and list their addresses and stuff. It's awesome.
3.0 out of 5 stars Need magnifier! 29 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Print is too small! This book contains great info but it is tiny print on tissue thin paper, and is two inches thick. It would be great if bound and sold in a multi book set in an easy read font. The maps are only marginally usable due to size. Too bad. This could have been a really great reference.
