Many thanks to Michelle Harper for this review, which she posted on Kindle recently:
Wish I could read it for the 1st time again; wonderful read, lyrical & haunting.
Beautiful, haunting, lyrical, riveting! Follow the author on an exciting adventure into the heart of Patagonia and into his own heart. This is more than simply a wonderfully written travel book into one of the most remote regions of the earth; it is also part memoir. Worrall retraces the journey that Darwin took into Patagonia to discover the origin of species and the steps that led to the dissolution of his marriage. You will root for and grieve with the author as he tries to close the yawning breach between his wife and his step family. A brave, beautiful book by an author who often writes poetry in prose. Certain passages of the book will stick with you long after you have put it down.
Both the wind and the river are metaphors for Worrall’s own restless soul. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. And you’ll be left with a wanderlust of your own to explore the hidden depths of Patagonia; a landscape of feminist shepherdesses, gauchos, and raw, unforgiving beauty–and your own heart.
