About this book

Language: English

From the back of the book:

"In the process of writing this book I have learnt much more than I could have ever imagined about the native peoples of Patagonia; their beliefs and their culture. The adventures of the European explorers and the difficulties of its first settlers.

It has also given me a deeper insight into the myths and legends of the natives and the "Creole" people regarding mysterious creatures inhabiting the Patagonian lakes and forests.

My research softened my initial twenty-first century skepticism and opened the door to many questions: Are there any unknown creatures living in Patagonia? If not presently, could they have disappeared recently? What is the most logical explanation for the reported sightings of cryptids and encounters with strange entities? Did the natives base their myths on real flesh-and-blood creatures? Is our knowledge limited due to lack of field research?

I believe that this is an endless quest, and – despite the copious documentation and images offered in this book – I will continue researching my favorite subject: Patagonia and its incredible mysteries."
