A book on the Falklands' geography, nature, wildlife, and current images of everyday activities and culture of the Islands has been launched in Bariloche, Argentina under the title of ”Las Islas, un viaje foto (geo) gráfico por las Malvinas”.

The author of the book is Adrian Monteleone, a Geography professor, amateur photographer and naturalist, who spent eight years in Argentine Patagonia and is currently teaching at El Bolsón.

According to his presentation his geographic curiosity for the Falklands was collected during a March 2017 trip to the Islands.

The book invites to think about the Islands...“beyond the war and territorial demands, but where stories, travelers experiences, literary presentations, coins and bills, daily life...converge”

This includes Falklands' community and Argentine territorial landmarks such as the Argentine military cemetery at Darwin, the old stone corrals used by the gauchos in the XIX century, the Argentine infrastructure before the war such as those from YPF, the fox holes and trenches, testimonies of Argentine history and everyday life in the Falklands.
