KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of the famous Ride dispenses with Mancha and Gato to continue his personal explorations of the southern part of South America, from Buenos Aires to Lake Fagnano and back up the eastern side of the Andes, with side trips into the mountains and the interior, into Chile and back. Grand stuff, with one who can get the inside dope. He can enter the humblest of Indian encampments, no one gives him the cold shoulder. He travels by Ford, he uses horses, he writes of Welsh settlements, of the southernmost tip and those who live there, of the law, the people, etc. Not up to the Ride for sheer excitement, but it is vigorous, colorful and new.
