In the face of nature's overwhelming dominance, living can be a process of ritualistically basic activity.
At great altitudes and in some of the most isolated regions of the Argentine and Chilean Andes - often only accessible by air, horse or all terrain vehicles - people tell stories of great tribulation.

The extremes in temperatures, blisteringly cold winds and the continuous lightning storms that blast at the earth's surface have shaped their lives. One might wonder at how and why these locations were chosen for founding their communities.
