Patagonia Chronicle: On Foot in Torres del Paine is an engaging travelogue about the 2009 adventure that author Susan Alcorn and her husband had following the internationally famous Circuit trail in Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia. They also visited Isla Magdalena and the Perito Moreno Glacier of Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, and in the following year they returned to Torres del Paine to experience the beautiful Lake District and ride a ferry through the Patagonian fjords. Patagonia Chronicle recounts a firsthand journey amid nature, wildlife (including Magellanic penguins!) and tremendous scenic beauty. Additional chapters are filled with backpacking tips, tricks, and techniques for those who would hike the wilds of Patagonia, and even a brief history of the region. Patagonia Chronicle is an absorbing read from cover to cover, thoroughly recommended for armchair travelers and prospective sightseers alike.
