South America is epic - and so is the Footprint Handbook, now in its 90th edition. Home to the world's highest waterfall, the longest mountain range and the largest rainforest, this continent will baffle you with its enormity. While cities like Rio de Janeiro swing to the sounds of samba, locals jostle around market stalls in Cuzco and indigenous farmers offer prayers to Pachamama - Mother Earth. Footprint's 90th edition of the South American Handbook is the ideal guidebook for adventure-hungry travellers. From Inca ruins and tropical jungles to the vast open plains of Patagonia - Footprint's revised and updated guide to South America provides the most comprehensive coverage, enabling you to escape the crowd and discover the continent for yourself.

'The South American Handbook shows why the printed travel guide will never die. It is so much more than a guidebook full of listings - it is an organic repository of nearly a century of courageous and serendipitous exploration.' --Simon Calder, Senior Travel Editor, The Independent
'Packed with intelligent, practical info and written with passion and love: if there's one catch-all guide for South America, the South American Handbook is it. It went with me on my first trip to the continent, over two decades ago and it s been on most visits since, serving me with tips, maps and cultural background from Guyana to the Peruvian Amazon, the Colombian Andes to Rio and beyond.' --Sarah Barrell, Associate Editor, National Geographic Traveller (UK)
