Beyond the Pampas: In Search of Patagonia (Paperback)

Beyond the Pampas: In Search of Patagonia By Imogen Rhia Herrad Cover Image
Email or call for price.


Serving as both a travelogue and a history of the Welsh settlers in Patagonia—and the indigenous people with whom they interacted—this account describes how Welsh settlers have been integrated into Argentinean society. It also tells how certain aspects of Welsh culture, including the language, have been retained. Providing a unique perspective on colonialism, religious oppression, and the pioneer spirit, this fascinating book includes the author's personal story of resolving longstanding issues of an abusive childhood during visits to Patagonia.
