I wanted a Bill Bryson funny travel book (it was promised on the back cover.) Instead I got heavy, detailed history of every single area of Argentina. Let me summarize: "In Argentina there have been a lot of wars."Keith Bennett
Original adventure in Argentina this is not. One lady's holiday at a series of organised riding centres. Disappointing.Kimberly DuBoise
This book does a great job blending history with adventure; I enjoyed the author's style of writing and reflection. Very descriptive and informative. I see this book as a journal and memoir in one. Enjoyed this book!Bronwen
I was recommended this read by a local library. I've never been to Argentina but would love to go now and do some riding while I'm there. Easy read, it only took me a day and a half to read and gives you insights into areas of Argentina too. Very recommended, especially if you are a 'horsey-type'!!John
I've read an awful lot of travel narrative/lit/essay since finishing Evans' previous installment, so had forgotten that she's more laid back than many other writers in this genre, not a bad thing, but different. At first, not being a "horse person", I'd feared that I wouldn't be able to get into the book, but those episodes are well integrated; author does a great job of covering Argentina's regions - from Iaguazu Falls in the far north to Ushuaia in the polar south. Definitely recommended.Michael Seeds
An insightful visit to the huge country of Argentina. Polly Evans is a pleasure to read.
