Description - Enduring Patagonia by Gregory Crouch
Patagonia is a land trapped between angry torrents of sea and sky, a place that has fascinated explorers and writers for centuries, discouraging all but the most devoted pilgrims. Gregory Crouch is one such pilgrim. Enduring Patagonia tracks his expeditions to this windswept edge of the Southern Hemisphere, where he has braved weather, gravity, fear, and doubt to try himself in the alpine crucible of Patagonia. Illustrated with more than 2 dozen black and white photos, Enduring Patagonia captures the many moods of this land. But above all, this account is a personal testament to Crouch's experiences as it portrays the riotous celebration of succesful climbs, the numbing boredom of forced encampments, and the quiet pride that comes from knowing one has performed well and bravely, even in failure.
