Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Argentina's geography, culture, economy, and people are introduced in this expertly filmed thumbnail sketch of the eighth largest country in the world. Measured narration, beautiful views, and occasional background music guide viewers through tropical jungles, rain forests, mountain ranges, farmlands, fishing ports, active cities, and other scenic regions of this culturally rich, geographically diverse South American country. A map pinpoints locales while commentary discusses the history, climate, religion, and other aspects of vast Argentina. A good basic overview for students. Gr. 6-12. ~--Sue-Ellen Beauregard"
