When California geologist Don McLaughlin was hired to go to the wilds of Bolivia to hunt for oil in 1959, he took two degrees from Berkeley, a three-man field crew, and a couple of cameras. The resulting collection follows their three-year journey exploring the country, revealing striking photographs of bug-plagued hillsides, valleys, and mountains. Chronicling their travels by air, mule, on foot, or via Land Rover, these images show villagers going about their everyday lives, painting a vivid portrait of this fascinating country's urban culture.


“This is a classic work that will grab you as soon as you open the cover.” —Melanie Lauwers, book page editor, Cape Cod Times
