The lively account of a Taunton, Massachusetts man's thirty years sojourn in Patagonia. Edward Chace departed Boston as a ship's carpenter in 1897 and abruptly found himself ashore in Patagonia in the summer of 1898--where he remained for more than three decades. The authors encountered Chace during their travels and spent a winter collecting and writing down his stories. The narrative provides a fascinating account of the life and adventures of a New Englander living on the life of a sheep-herder, hunter, and gold-seeker in the Pampas. Chace recounts many strange and vivid stories, from hunting pumas in caves, to fights, sheep ranching, encounters with various renegades, gauchos, and Indians, lions, horses, ostriches and guanacos. Packed with local lore and color.
