When Bruce Chatwin's In Patagonia was published in 1977 it heralded the arrival of a startling new talent in British literature. Critics were surprised and spellbound by a story of an adventure which blurred the boundaries between travel writing, biography, history and memoir. All readers recognised its timeless quality - Auberon Waugh went as far as to call it 'a classic'.

Forty years later, Chatwin's first book continues to inspire generations of travellers and writers. This 40th anniversary edition celebrates the enduring status of In Patagonia and includes a host of material from the archive to recreate the book's genesis and publication.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Elliptical and alive, this is a brilliant travel book * Observer *
It is hard to pin down what makes In Patagonia so unique, but, in the end, it is Chatwin's brilliant personality that makes it what it is... His form of travel was not about getting from A to B. It was about internal landscapes. * Sunday Times *
The chameleon traveller...who wrote books in a genre of their own, and whose life was his own subtlest creation... a complex, flamboyantly gifted and rather tragic figure -- Colin Thubron * Guardian *

“Nothing could have prepared me better......”

A true classic in travel writing. I read this book before my maiden trip to Patagonia last year. Not only is it a great story, but also a great way of planning any trip to this part of the world.

“Unfortunately not what I was expecting”

The stories are hard to follow. The amount of small chapters and flip flopping between his accounts can sometimes interrupt the flow of the book. The last few chapters did not need to feature at all.
