Rapa Nui, Wildlife and Landscapes © Fantástico Sur EditorialRapa Nui - Wildlife and Landscapes

Enrique Couve & Claudio F. Vidal (2007) Fantástico Sur Editorial, Chile. 100 pages. Hardback. Bilingual (English | Spanish) edition. ISBN 978-956-8007-23-2

The more than 2,000 nautical miles of Pacific Ocean separating Rapa Nui from the American continent makes this volcanic promontory the most isolated populated site on the planet. It has been, since the moment the legendary ariki (king) Hotu Matu'a and his skilled sailors discovered and settled on the island, the southeastern tip of the Triangle of Polynesia. Rapa Nui has been the scenario for a complex, intriguing and fascinating history. Today, hundreds of moai are the silent witnesses of the achievements and failures of this isolated civilization.

Western Navigators discovered Rapa Nui - or Easter Island - on the Easter Day of 1722. It is currently a national park of Chile, established primarily to protect its invaluable archaeological sites, which have warranted its UNESCO World Heritage status.

This book aims to show the reader the island's archaeological treasures and the more interesting sites of this overwhelming open-air museum, a territory holding a very special culture in a seemigly harsh but unique landscape.

Robinson Crusoe Island - Wildlife and Landscapes

Enrique Couve & Claudio F. Vidal (2007) Fantástico Sur Editorial, Chile. 100 pages. Hardback. Bilingual (English | Spanish) edition. ISBN 978-956-8007-26-3
On 1709, corsair ships rescued the Scottish sailor Alexander Selkirk from the easternmost island of the Juan Fernandez Archipelago. Back in England, Selkirk's accounts of his more than four years on the island served as inspiration for Daniel Defoe, who published in 1719, his classic novel "The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe".

Located on the Pacific Ocean, nearly 400 miles off the Chilean coast, Robinson Crusoe (formerly known as Masatierra) is still an island of castaways, holding plants and animals that arrived to this volcatic formation several million years ago. This fragile island ecosystem, which slowly generated an exclusive array of nature treasures, has been tremendously threatened after man's arrival.

Discover through these pages the natural secrets and ancient castaways of Robinson Crusoe, now facing the daunting battle against their own extinction, and of this praised evolution stronghold in the South Pacific.
