Bedford spent the 1950s, 60s and 70s living in France, Italy, Britain and Portugal, and during this period had a twenty-year relationship with the American female novelist Eda Lord…

Patagonia recalls immediately Bruce Chatwin and various memories of the great travelers. The Spanish text of Martin Trebino is a political travelogue and a courageous exploration without hesitation of a land he knows very well. It is a strong, political and ecological writing, very easy and nice to read. It is accompanied by some pictures. It is part of the “places” seriesof Errant and we are very proud to publish it.
