Mitos y certezas de navegantes y aventureros
The winter of year 1520 was closing in. A Tehuelche Indian spotted some “awnings” (toldos) floating in the sea. Some bearded men were giving signals that he could not understand. He sang and threw sand over his head as a sign of his despair. Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan’s chronicler, made note “by hand” of this dance and that song. The author considers that Patagonia is “hand-written land”. That the accounts of navigators and adventurers have created an immense library in which the written reality is read as magical. He has presented this thesis in universities, schools and popular libraries of the region. This book is the result of that activity. Bilingual edition and big type.
