From Tierra del Fuego up the length of the snow-capped Andes, through the heart of the continent out onto the lush Amazon delta, we travel across five ecosystems and six countries to face some elemental questions. How have we humans (and other living things) adapted to extreme environments¾with varying climates and living conditions¾transforming our habits and even our physiology to do so? And conversely how have we shaped these environments for our use, at times exploiting them to depletion? Accompanied by one reporter’s curiosity and determination, we explore the extremes of a diverse continent to discover the truth about our place in the world.
