Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego has long provided rich pickings for authors who ventured to that remote corner of the planet.


 Once you make a booking on one of our cruises in the region, Australis sends you a comprehensive list of both modern and ancient books that will give you a better understanding of the places you'll be crusing and make your journey more enjoyable. 

The list includes many of our expedition team favorites, as well as books recommended by a National Geographic writer who has traveled across the region several times. Most of them are available at or in paper or e-book formats.
