In the Southern Andes, a thousand year old tree, the Araucaria Araucana survives for 200 million years. It’s story is little known and forever linked to an Amerindian people of Chile: the Pehuenches. This isolated community has survived for centuries thanks to the Araucaria. But the perfect harmony between man and nature got soon disturbed by invasion of the Spanish settlers, territorial conflicts, logging and the fires.
