About the Book
An epic voyage to the Cape Horn Islands region of South America by three old friends in search of Charles Darwin's ghost results in adventure, sublime revelation and petty bickering. With a simple wristwatch acting as their navigational support, Kurt, Bob and David experience the mythical in what are commonly referred to as "the roughest waters on the planet" near Cape Horn. Attempting to revisit the epic journey of Charles Darwin's Beagle in 1832 and decipher the factors influencing the famous "theory of evolution," the three face all manner of hardship and revelation in the magic land of Tierra Del Fuego.
Robert Troup (Dogstarman) is elated to have been invited to join the rest of you on this planet Earth. He loves to dismantle and analyze the essence of things through his cameras (while adding that certain artistic "Je ne sais quois") to create original and compelling works of art. His forte is to photograph people (mostly) and despite his fourth grade teacher Miss Mcdonald's best efforts, he can't seem to suppress his appetite for adventure and desire to drink in life to its fullest. He lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and best friend Elizabeth, their daughter Grace and an ever swirling array of Border Collies.
