This "little masterpiece of travel, history, and adventure" (The New York Times) is Bruce Chatwick's exquisite account of his journey through the "uppermost part of the earth"--that stretch of land at the southern tip of South America, where bandits were once made welcome and Charles Darwin formed part of his "survival of the fittest" theory.
