The 16 stories in this collection deal with confrontation, struggle, and survival amidst the unforgiving violence of nature. Set in the hauntingly beautiful and dangerously remote lands of southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, the narration acquires a magical tone in describing the strife of man in the doubly isolating landscape of human nature within the surrounding environment.
