The Chuña


The first book in the series, THE CHUÑA, is based on a true story about the observation and interaction of a young boy with the chuña.


It’s a jungle out there, tucked away in the foothills of the Andes. One of South America’s largest terrestrial birds has jumped onto the roof of a house! It’s a curious behavior as we truly don’t know why he does this. We can come up with many scenarios! Why do you think the chuña does this? Let’s look at animals as animals. We may not understand everything they do. Take pleasure in the wonder, mystery and fascination of nature in its pure form. This is just one of the many animals that live in the yungas of Argentina!
