Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*
This is not a guidebook. And it's definitely 'not-for-parents'. It is the real inside story about one of the world's most colorful continents - South America. In this book you'll hear fascinating tales about wrestling ladies and man-eating fish, lost cities, intrepid explorers, and remarkable survivals. Check out cool stories about the real Robinson Crusoe, a navy without an ocean, rivers that shimmer with colors, and floating islands. You'll find dirty dancing, fowl play, daring prison escapes, and history galore. This book shows you a South America your parents probably don't even know about.
