Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

This timeless memoir chronicles life among the coastal Yaghan. Bridges combines personal experience and great storytelling to make the history, life, and geography of this very remote region come alive. But don't take our word for it; listen to what readers and reviewers say:

-Overall, Amazon readers rate Uttermost Part of the Earth 4.7 stars out of 5 (for context, note that across its various editions, Tolstoy's brilliant classic novel Anna Karenina is rated 4.5 out of 5 on Amazon.com):

"I've been telling people while completing this book that it's one of the top three I've ever read, and now having no story left to discover and longing for more, it's quite safe to say that this is the best book I have ever read."

- Goodreads

"A most amazing book."

- The Daily Beagle

"A masterpiece of historical anthropology and impressive personal enterprise. A classic for anyone with an interest in adventure and travel in wild places."

-Amazon reviewer

"This book is as full of romance as any novel. Written by a man who knew the Fuegian Indians-one who had lived among them for many years and had mastered their intricate languages-the ... life of Don Lucas Bridges in Tierra del Fuego is also a unique ethnological value."

-The Americas by Cambridge University Press

"A classic ... rip-roaring account of his life among the Indians of Tierra del Fuego. Bridges' engaging style speaks from a different era."
