This is a book to accompany two Channel 4 TV programmes. The programmes are in two distinct halves, Tom's bicycle ride across the pampas to the sierras of Cordoba and the second ride across Patagonia from the mountains to the sea.
Tom Vernon's travels took him across the South American pampa to the sierras of Cordoba, through Patagonia, the Andean north-west and the regions around Salta and Tucuman. His encounters with settlements of Old England, France and Italy, German survivors from the SS Graf Spee, Welsh-speaking immigrants, and Mapuche Indians illustrate the diversity of Argentina's culture, and show Tom Vernon to be a perceptive and witty raconteur.
