Synopsis: ?The book that redefined travel writing.?? Guardian

In Patagonia is a quest or a Wonder Voyage. It is about wandering and exile. Bruce Chatwin travels to a remote country in search of a strange beast and, in the course of his travels, describes his encounters with the people whose fascinating stories delay him on the road.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review: Fascinated by Patagonia since an early childhood lust for Grandma's scrap of hairy Giant Sloth skin, Chatwin's also intrigued by odd miners and the log cabin built by Butch Cassidy in Cholila. In 1977 the London Observer called it "a brilliant travel book," and while Chatwin's no longer alive (he died in 1989), his book still glows. From Rio Negro to the southernmost town of Ushuaia, Chatwin depicts all in writing as spare as the Patagonian desert itself, and as vibrant as the purple clouds off Last Hope Sound.
