El bosque chileno is part of I Confess I Have Lived, the memoirs the poet left unfinished when he died suddenly in 1973. The text is accompanied with the illustrations by the young Chilean artist Antonia Lara, and supplemented with ecological information on the main species Neruda mentions in the text.

“He who does not know the Chilean forest does not know this planet.” Pablo Neruda
