At home with the Patagonians; a year's wanderings over untrodden ground from the Straits of Magellan to the Rio Negro by George C Musters( Book )

37 editions published between 1871 and 2014 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orphaned by the age of four, George Chaworth Musters (1841-79) joined the Royal Navy at thirteen, served with distinction during the Crimean War, and reached the rank of commander. Having been stationed on the coast of South America, during which time he read up on Darwin's voyage in the Beagle, he pursued in 1869 his aim of travelling through the south of the continent. In this 1871 publication, which earned him the nickname 'the king of Patagonia', Musters records the year he spent among native Patagonians, covering almost 1,400 miles. He gives a detailed account of their customs and daily life, particularly the manners, dress, hunting practices and methods of battle of the Tehuelche people. Featuring a number of vivid engravings, the book did much to reveal this land to Europeans. It remains an instructive text in the history of South American exploration and anthropology

Tehuelche SH05( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Tehuelche consists of ten documents; eight in English and two in Spanish. The documents can be broadly categorized into three groups by time period and the information they cover. The first group consists of documents by a colonial administrator and a European explorer of Patagonia, and provide a first-hand account of Tehuelche society and culture, with particular emphasis on hunting methods, diet, warfare, social organization, inter-ethnic relations, religion, important ceremonies and the natural environment, prior to their forced encampment in reserves in the 1880s. The second group consists of documents by professional anthropologists who sought to recreate a picture of pre-conquest Tehuelche society by building on information by earlier writers. Topics covered by these documents include aspects of culture, territoriality and social structure, folklore, and mythology. The third group consists of just one book, but fills a critical gap by documenting the political and cultural processes that led to the gradual extinction of the Tehuelche beginning from their first contact with Europeans in 1520 to their final forced encampment in reserves in the 1880s. The Tehuelche were primarily hunter-gatherers living mostly in Patagonia, Argentina, and southern Chile
