The year is 1799. Scientists Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland travel to South America. From the ports of Venezuela to the volcano Mount Chimborazo, from “Paradise on Earth” to plagued missions all the way to the “Kingdom of Poison”, they trace unknown footprints, explore dark caves, climb volcanoes and measure the world. With her storytelling, Christine Lander uniquely combines the legendary adventures of discovery with indigenous tales and myths from South America.
