In Drawn by a Star, Irish Andaluc?an-based artist and writer, Meg Robinson, documents an exhilarating personal quest charting the trials and triumphs of an intrepid South American journey. With a dramatic backdrop of Patagonian ice-fields, Chilean fjords, forests and the snow-capped Andes, she takes us to the remote pioneer village of Tortel on her search for a story to make into a film. Weaving astutely entertaining tales of the difficulties encountered by the independent traveller, informed accounts of the legacy of the European pioneers and introductions to characters as diverse as the Russian tarot reader who warns of a looming crisis and the intriguing Canadian wilderness guide with a mysterious past, Drawn by a Star is a compelling blend of travel narrative, history and spiritual autobiography. This beguiling book brings an awe-inspiring landscape to life and beautifully conveys the experience of a series of profoundly transformational inner and outer adventures.
