Summary:
This breathtaking program takes students to the southernmost tip of South America into Patagonia for a close-up view of towering blocks of moving ice that glow with an eerie blue light. On the walls of these ancient glaciers, viewers find traces of the people who hunted here at the end of the Ice Age. The journey continues north into the jungle to discover the poetry of Iguacu Falls, found on the border of Argentina and Brazil. Students learn the myths and the science behind the creation of the majestic "devil¹s throat" and surrounding waterfalls. From there, viewers travel off the coast of Ecuador to the Galapagos, a rugged archipelago of volcanic origins. The islands, with their forbidding landscape and uniquely adapted wildlife, prompted Darwin's theory of natural selection and the concept of evolution. Part of the multivolume Natural Wonders of the World Video Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
