I think anyone that likes historical events would enjoy reading this book.
Mr. Murphy tells of trip he made to Cape Horn to explore the region with several companions but he also spends a great deal of time discussing the history of the area.
The overall sense of balance to the book, and the wealth of information about an undernoticed area of the world, made this a very satisfying read.
