Samenvatting

When critically acclaimed writer, Simon Worrall, travels to Patagonia on assignment for National Geographic Magazine, he encounters one of the planet’s last wild places: a vast, windblown landscape peopled by colorful characters - a Catholic priest on his way to The South Pole; a woman living alone in The Mountains of The Wind; gauchos, misfits and eccentrics. As the wind chases him south towards Tierra del Fuego, he also lays bare his own story of desire and lost love, and one man's search for his place in the world. On the way, he visits some of the places that inspired Charles Darwin's Origin of Species. Applying Darwin's ideas to his own life, Worrall explores his own origins and his evolution as a man and a father, with an honesty that is deeply moving. The result is not just another exotic, travelogue. Instead, Worrall delivers a powerful story of love and adventure at the ends of the earth that will take its place alongside such classics as Bruce Chatwin's ''In Patagonia'' and ''The Snow Leopard'' by Peter Matthiessen.
