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, as he goes along, describes his encounters with other people whose stories delay him on the road.
About the Author
Bruce Chatwin reinvented British travel writing with his first book, IN PATAGONIA, and followed it with four other books, each unique and extraordinary. He died in 1989.
"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 *
