Description

Also included in this new, fully illustrated e-book edition are 140 beautiful colour photographs from the author’s journey across South America. At the far southern tip of South America, surrounded by some of the world’s roughest seas, lies the island of Tierra del Fuego. It’s three days into the new Millennium, and Ian is about to set off on the journey of a lifetime. After finally tearing himself away from the delights of Buenos Aires he journeys down through the wild and spectacular landscape of Patagonia. The journey should have been simple and direct, but turned out to be neither. Discover, after miles of hostile landscape, the wonders that lie at the end of this continent: spectacular mountain scenery and a thriving community of friendly people in the southernmost city in the world. Then travel back through the diversity of the long, thin country of Chile where he: goes to painful lengths to hike the mountains and touch a glacier, gets stranded in the desert, takes an ill-fated journey across the Andes before ending up on Lake Titicaca where, on an island that belongs more at the turn of the last Millennium, he gains a fascinating insight into the life of some Titicaca Indians. Finally end it all off with an illegal tour of San Pedro prison in La Paz, led by one of the inmates, Fernando, a drug dealer. This is the fascinating story of Ian’s experiences as a lone backpacker on a not so lonely journey across South America. Ian encounters many fascinating people as he makes his way along the East Coast from Buenos Aires to the southernmost tip of South America and the inestimable experience of actually being at Tierra del Fuego, the end of the world. The reader will enjoy the stories of how Ian experienced and handled the exotic climates of South America and sometimes found that he was not dressed for the weather. The historically-minded will relish Ian’s deep insight into the culture and customs of the Titicaca Indians. Hikers will laugh at the stories of how Ian tackled the desolate and sometimes perilous landscape as he moved in to get the closest possible shot of the breathtaking scenery. Learn about a four-day tour across the Bolivian Altiplano in a jeep that kept breaking down! Even given unreliable transport, a trip to the end of the salar near the Isla de Pescadores was hard to resist. The reward was a view of the most amazing sunset in the world. The price to be paid was a 76-kilometre drive in a jeep that was about as reliable as a British train. Ian tried to convince his companions that they could make it. But as the sun set, the jeep spluttered to a stop, not for the first time. Ian and his companions were still miles from the edge of the salar as darkness was setting in. The jeep was also starting to hit water. The driver struggled to make out the tyre tracks.
