I love books like these - books that combine history with travel and fire up your own imagination for *that* trip you need to make some day. My own 'some-day trip' is to follow in the footsteps of distant rellies who went out to Patagonia (and back. Twice.) in the late 1800s and this book was perfect inspiration. It is an engaging read and evokes both landscape and familial ties beautifully.

Just not good!!
I was really disappointed in this as I love Daisy's fiction. I couldn't bring myself to event finish it (entirely out of character for me when I've read half a book). Sorry Daisy!
Enjoyed the first 1/2 of book which had some human inteest. Then became bored with history lesson and just little snippets of information loosely connected with Argentina. Just not my style of book
This was moving and sometimes funny. Worth reading.
