The book is similar in character to John Lloyd Stephens’s and Frederick Catherwood’s Incidents of Travel in Mexico, Chiapas and the Yucatan, but it covers several more years of travel and a wider area. The countries visited for the author’s work as an artist range between Mexico and Argentina, with a preliminary chapter about his time in Argentina as a ‘pastoralist’. As it says in the introduction, the title hints at the climate of these travels, which produced a succession of up-beat encounters and kindnesses, many sights of rare beauty and much to think about. There is a strong conservationist element in the work: both the paintings and the book are intended to draw attention to the fragility of many of the habitats visited as well as the plight of much of the natural fauna.
