SIMONA STOPPA    Book Number: 90092    Product format: Hardback

From award-winning ultra-modern architecture to the multi-coloured baroque splendour of Ouro Preto, a UNESCO world heritage site preserved just as it was when founded in 1711, from the amazing nightlife of Rio de Janeiro to religious festivals in tiny villages and from the Pantanal Wetlands and Iguacu Falls to the mighty Amazon, here is every aspect of Brazil today, an awesome mixture of contradictory elements, grandiose scenery, intimate beauty and a kaleidoscope of unforgettable colours and faces. "Deus é Brasileiro" (God is Brazilian) say over 200 million Brazilians, certain that their land, so rich in natural beauty and diversity, must have been created by God in his own image. Given that Brazil occupies almost half the land area of South America and boasts five different habitats, the world?s greatest biodiversity and variety of ecosystems holding this view is not surprising, but Brazil is not just the Amazon and its rainforest, endless shoreline, white beaches and mountains that make it unique. These spectacular natural resources exist side by side with urban areas, be they small towns or megalopolises and as a huge confederation of 26 states these cities, towns and villages embrace chaos and peace, modern brilliance and a love of the ancient and wealth juxtaposed with extreme poverty, as well as some tribes of indigenous people who have had next to zero contact with Europeans. This jaw-dropping volume lets the pictures do the talking. Author and journalist Simona Stoppa provides history and background to the country, its people and nature, but it is the collection of some 200 colour images of landscapes, cityscapes, people, animals, trees, rivers, the oceans and mountains that completely take the reader's breath away. 272pp, 9"×9½".
