In Patagonia Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of In Patagonia

IN PATAGONIA by Bruce Chatwin. Summit Books, 205 pages.
In this travel book on Patagonia, Argentina, Bruce Chatwin gives us a delightful account of his trip, taken in 1977. The structure of the book is different from most other travel books Chatwin goes off looking for one thing, gets sidetracked on to some other and then on to something else. We are given history pertaining to the area, Chatwin's research is simply astonishing. He travels incessantly and doesn't hesitate to go the distance to ferret out the story. From looking for the Patagonian creature mylodon to stories about Butch Cassidy and a lot of Argentine and Chilean folklore, this is a great book. Especially for anyone who has been to the region, this book serves to show that there is so much out there.
