Patagonia - the name calls to mind giants and outlaws, Magellan's dog-headed monsters, natives whose heads steam when they eat pudding. Called 'the uttermost part of the Earth', Patagonia is the stretch of land at the southern tip of South America. Bruce Chatwin's account of his own Quest or Wonder Voyage through this strange region put him on the map as one of the finest travel writers of the last century.

Review:

Fascinated by Patagonia ever since an early childhood lust for his Grandma's scrap of hairy Giant Sloth skin, Bruce Chatwin is intrigued by odd miners, Darwin, the Welsh and the log cabin built by Butch Cassidy. From Rio Negro to the southernmost town of Ushuaia, Chatwin depicts all in writing as spare as the Patagonian desert and as vibrant as the purple clouds off Last Hope Sound.

Review:

"Elliptical and alive, this is a brilliant travel book" (Observer)

"It is hard to pin down what makes In Patagonia so unique, but, in the end, it is Chatwin’s brilliant personality that makes it what it is... His form of travel was not about getting from A to B. It was about internal landscapes." (Sunday Times)

"The chameleon traveller...who wrote books in a genre of their own, and whose life was his own subtlest creation... a complex, flamboyantly gifted and rather tragic figure" (Colin Thubron Guardian)
