“The format is attractive; main ideas are in large type, and the pictures, with very brief captions, are high quality. Some of the shots are quite riveting. . . and they do a good job of visualizing Sayre’s economical text, which offers a wide-angle perspective on a continent’s topography and a few brief comments about cultural diversity and animal life.”

The Horn Book Guide

“This carefully designed book combines striking photographs with a brief but engaging text that is sure to inspire readers to seek more information on the land, people, and animals of South America. . . [T]his is a. . . solid introduction to the continent.”
