Format: Paperback
This is one of my very favorite books. Lady Florence Dixie sets off on an adventure at a time when women simply did not take off to distant lands, in this case southern Patagonia, even with large support groups, just to see what there is to see. She starts off with all the trappings of a fine English lady, including all the necessaries for afternoon tea, and sees some of the most spectacular scenery that southern Chile and Argentina have to offer. She creates her own names for the geological features she sees and makes many keen observations. Over time, her team encounters some rather serious difficulties. By the end, the team bears no resemblance to the well-outfitted, confident, clean and polished group that left. A wonderful story of a strong lady, unknown land and culture, extreme beauty seen seen the first time by Western eyes, creativity, and a flair for story-telling that will have you laughing out loud and wanting to share the story with all your friends. The fact that this book was not really published, but rather photocopied and then bound, gives it extra charm. Highly recommended.

Bought the book for an idea about what we might see this November from a source that had no reason to fudge what she saw. The story of her trip with friends, relatives and guides was interesting. It could have used more references to specific locations, but since it was written in the late 1800's, not finding many should not have been a surprise. The early date of her trip means the descriptions away from the few cities of the time were almost all of places that foreigners had never seen. There were many descriptions of hunting guanaco, ostriches, various birds and even pumas. For them this was essential as that is how they survived their adventure. The book also showed how callous these travelers (and others of their time and privilege) were about wild life. One scene describes shooting a condor from high up pretty much only because they wanted to see if they could!

I thick what I read will arm me with some meaningful questions to ask about how things used to be while we are travelling in Patagonia.

Fascinating read. Exploration of Chile at a time when there were few inhabitants. She was bored with Victorian English society and went off to Chile to just have an adventure.

I just traveled to Patagonia, so was interested in the account of this British woman at the turn of the century. She was quite the adventuress, hunter, and rider. She writes with humor and with wonderful descriptions of the adventures she and her companions have. They make living on ostrich and guanaco sound almost tolerable. A really fun read.
