When Bruce Chatwin's In Patagonia was published in 1977 it heralded the arrival of a startling new talent in British literature.

Critics were surprised and spellbound by a story of an adventure which blurred the boundaries between travel writing, biography, history and memoir.

All readers recognised its timeless quality - Auberon Waugh went as far as to call it `a classic'. Forty years later, Chatwin's first book continues to inspire generations of travellers and writers.

This 40th anniversary edition celebrates the enduring status of In Patagonia and includes a host of material from the archive to recreate the book's genesis and publication.
