Patagonia is like no other place in the world.
The rugged mountains are uniquely carved by glaciers into fantastic towers of rock. The clouds are otherworldly, and strangely spectacular. The experience of visiting this uncultivated place and hiking deep amidst this splendour is a transforming and unforgettable experience.
The region is remote and often desolate. The winds blow with gale force, and the gusts are truly humbling -- pushing back any who intrude on the mountains' solitude. But the winds bring ever changing vistas and delight to the visitor of this rugged land.
This 168 page book contains images and text describing the impressions of this dramatic and striking part of Chile and Argentina called Patagonia by award winning photographer John Harbison -- all taken during a three week trip in 2008.
Also see the companion larger format book "Wild Patagonia" with just images.
