I took the 1990 edition of the SAH - a lovely little brick of a book with a jaguar on the front - with me when I went to live in Buenos Aires and took it all over Argentina with me on my many trips. For all its listings and facts, I never really thought of it as a practical guide; for me it was more of a dream-Bible, the wispy thin pages full of possibilities of travel and exploration. It got nicked when I was in Salta and I was inconsolable. -- Chris Moss The Telegraph
