    One thought on “Across Patagonia”

    1. She was an amazing woman who did something remarkable for her time and position in the British society. The book is a little repetitive but worth reading for those who are heading to the region, which is what I did.

    2. "We drank our fill of idleness" should not make one think that this is all they did. The author and her travel companions traveled across Patagonia, presenting us the unexplored territory. I never thought I would find interest in how an author describes a hunt, but she presented a nice image.

The author makes elaborate preparations for her trip to the Patagonias , drabs on and on at every paragraph , gasps when their party meets with three accidents in a course of 24 hours,and many more such "adventures" and continues to ramble about things that probably only she finds interesting. A firs [...]
