  • A Long Way to Tierra del Fuego is the story of a journey from Valparaiso in central Chile, and from Louisburgh in the west of Ireland, to the island of Tierra del Fuego below the Magellan Straits. Travelling by land and sea through some of the most remote and desolately-beautiful landscapes in South America, the author reached a part of the world that has been the subject of legends, hopes, disasters and dreams, the lonely coasts and windy steppelands of Patagonia.

    But the book, like the journey, is also about childhood and its dreams, adult choices and their consequences, and the tenacity of early or ancestral influences and landscapes on an individual life. It is about images and desires that may go underground or a long time but dont necessarily die. It took the author decades to get as far as Tierra del Fuego, but when she finally arrived on the long-dreamt-of shore she found that the journey was a liberating moment for her at the beginning of a new life in South America.
