Santa Fe Writer's Project #ad - Following paul theroux's route from his 1979 travelogue, mccahill transports the reader from a classroom in a Quito barrio to a dingy room in an El Salvadorian brothel, and from the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires to the heights of the Peruvian Andes. Spanning four seasons, three teaching jobs, and countless buses, 10 countries, Patagonian Road chronicles Kate McCahill's solo journey from Guatemala to Argentina.

In her struggles with language, romance, culture, and homesickness, rare inspiration, service, she personifies a growing culture of women for whom travel is not a path to love but to meaningful work, and profound self-discovery. A testament to courage, clarity, solitude, patagonian Road proves that discovery, and the rewards of taking risks, and simplicity remain possible in the 21st century, and that travel holds an enduring capacity to transform.

Her story is not just a very detailed, descriptive account of the countries she rode through but also of the problems she faced and overcame.
