This is a classic book combining paleontology and travelogue. Selected by Time Life books for their quality paperbacks in the '60s, it is the memoire of George Gaylord Simpson's trip to Southern Argentina to collect dinosaur fossils in a poor, thinly inhabited, mostly desert area of South America. His beautifully written and sometimes hilarious description of rural life combines with enough science and natural history of the area to make a lasting impression on his readers. "We spent the night in the best accodation in town; the Hotel Colon. The other hotels were farther down the line."
Something to compare to the present for anyone looking for out of the way tourist destinations.
