About this book

Wild and remote, Patagonia is a region that captures the natural drama of South America like no other - from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific, from the vast wind-swept stretches of the pampa grasslands to the dramatic archipelago of Tierra del Fuego and the treacherous tip of Cape Horn. #El Sur# fascinated explorers like Magellan and FitzRoy - captain of the HMS Beagle on which Darwin sailed - as well as buccaneers like Drake. The jagged granite cliffs of the FitzRoy Massif, the mighty glaciers, the still mountain lakes of the Andes, as well as the impenetrable rainforests cast a dream-like spell on all who venture here.
