This classic book is a must for each trip to Patagonia. Bruce Chatwin hikes, travels by bus or by hitchhiking through Patagonia, where people live, who have come from different countries and reasons to Patagonia. Bruce Chatwin meets these people and reports lovingly and in detail about them. If you were already in Patagonia, you know what he is talking. If you weren't yet in Patagonia, you would like to go there after reading the book.View in Amazon
The author and two friends hiked in 2005 from Ushuaia 500 kilometers along the coast line of the peninsula Miter through Tierra del Fuego. Their experiences, the encounters with the locals in the almost-inhabited area, the efforts and deprivations as well as their moments of happiness, is described by the author in this book.
(The book is available in Englisch, but I couldn't find it on Amazon. The Spanish title is "Huellas de Fuego".)
David Lama was born in 1990 as the son of an Austrian and a Nepali. He is regarded as an exception in the climbing scene and won many climbing competitions in climbing halls. The Cerro Torre is the dream of many climbers. His perhaps somewhat arrogant project "From the climbing hall up to the Cerro Torre" failed first. However he was successful in 2011 and without any expedients 2013 with his climbing partner Peter Ortner.View in Amazon
