This Way Southward

With the Second World War raging across Europe, the most famous equestrian explorer of the twentieth century decides to make a perilous journey across the U-boat infested Atlantic. His mission? To return to his old haunts in South America and undertake a harrowing 7,000 mile journey by car through Argentina, across the inhospitable regions of Tierra del Fuego and over the majestic Andes mountains.
One of the finest travel writers of his day, Tschiffely packs his story with a host of adventures and colourful characters including riding with gauchos and staying with the legendary Ona Indians. In addition This Way Southward details the adventurer’s emotional last meeting with his two legendary Criollo horses, Mancha and Gato.
