Travel and history of Central and South American countries that border the Pacific Ocean, including Panama, Peru, and Bolivia.
Ernest Clifford Peixotto (1869–1940) was an American artist, illustrator, and author. Although he was known mainly for his murals and his travel literature, his artwork also regularly appeared in Scribner's Magazine.
"The luxurious indolence that possesses the traveler as he glides over this lazy tropical sea, the romance of the Spanish cities, the picturesqueness and the appeal of its vast Indian population, the desolation its arid wastes, the dizzy heights of its cordillera, thesharp contrast of climate and vegetation—where equatorial tropics and eternal snows are often but a few hours apart… all these make up a journey the fascination of which can scarcely be overstated."—Preface.
