Abstract:

Nowhere is a Place recounts Paul Theroux's and Bruce Chatwin's impressions of this little-known windswept wilderness and reveals the powerful effect Patagonia has had on the Western literary imagination since the age of exploration. Patagonia has cast its spell on authors as diverse as Magellan, Darwin, W.H. Hudson, Shakespeare, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Conan Doyle, Edgar Allan Poe, and Herman Melville. "It has a look of antiquity, of desolation, of eternal peace." (W.H. Hudson). Jeff Gnass's spectacular full-color photographs capture Patagonia's stark, compelling beauty: from the granite spires of Torres del Paine in Chile to sculpted icebergs at the terminus of Glaciar Moreno to great lenticular clouds gliding above Cordillera Paine in Chile.

As Gnass explains in his notes, Nowhere Is a Place offers "a clear impression of one of the wildest places on earth, and also encourages understanding of this unique region and a realization of the need for such wild places where man is forever a visitor."
