A Cactus Odyssey

Journeys in the Wilds of Bolivia, Peru, and Argentina

Author: James D. Mauseth, Roberto Kiesling, Carlos Ostolaza

This book presents the stories of three avid field biologists who have frequently traveled together in search of cacti in Bolivia, Peru, and Argentina over the course of fifteen years. Collaborators as well as friends, the authors have written this book not only to document their field work studying, collecting, and researching those countries' most intriguing cactus species, but also to share their unforgettable experiences.

The conversational style of this travelogue allows us to share in the authors' excitement as they encounter plants that have rarely, if ever been written about. Nearly 195 remarkable color photographs accompany the vivid descriptions of unusual cacti growing in seemingly unsuitable altitudes of 8000 feet or more, and even in rain-forests! The authors' adventures come alive as they describe encounters with suddenly changing weather patterns, bad - sometimes treacherous - roads, no electricity, exotic foods, and friendly, helpful locals during their journeys.
