The author rambled along for the first 1/2 of the book-or, at least I had a hard time following any point he was trying to make-but that problem got sorted out by the second half. It is a good book if you want an idea of how a very small part of the world works: Chilean Patagonia and the gauchos who still live there. Apr 24, 2015 Desiree rated it liked it. Shelves: chile. I read this in preparation for my trip to Chile later this year. While I think it would be cool to visit a remote area like this, I'm not sure I'm brave enough to do it.
The lives of these real cowboys riding the last free range are both fascinating and frightening. This is compulsive reading by a gifted storyteller. In 1995 Reding traveled a still-unfinished road in Chilean Patagonia into an unmapped river valley, and it was there he found himself in a closed chapter of history: a last undetected and unexplored.
Some people will go to the ends of the earth for a good story; Nick Reding went to the end of the road, which turned out to be one and the same. When the Pan American Highway was extended into Chilean Patagonia, it exposed a people long believed to be extinct-the gauchos. While the gauchos had struggled for centuries with the hantavirus, extreme isolation, and visits by the devil, what the road brought was truly overwhelming
They live in isolation. Patagonia, which covers 250,000 square miles over the two countries, averages less than one inhabitant per square mile. Many Chileans go their entire lives without coming across a gaucho. After reading Reding’s book, English department chair, poet and novelist Reginald Gibbons said his former student demonstrated stamina, determination and self-discipline as a writer. Not until Reding took an expository writing class at Northwestern did he realize he was interested in writing. Then he worked his way into the creative writing program. While The Last Cowboys took an ethnographic tone, Reding says he just wants to tell people’s stories, not write science. Emily Ramshaw (J03).

Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2009, ISBN 978-1-59691-650-0. Journalist Nick Reding stumbled into Gooding, Idaho, in 1999, to report a magazine story about ranching in the sparsely populated flatlands northwest of where Idaho, Nevada and Utah come together. It was there that Reding first encountered crystal methamphetamine, and he didn't just see it in one place. It was everywhere - on the ranches, in the bars that overmatched police dared not enter and in the ranch bunkhouses where dealers dropped by like door-to-door salesmen. In his persuasive new book, "Methland," journalist Nick Reding reveals the fallacies of this myth by showing how, over the past three decades, small-town America has been blighted by methamphetamine, which has taken root in - and taken hold of - its soul.

The UK premier screening of GAUCHO: The Last Cowboys of Patagonia followed by a Q&A with the film makers Josh Bullock and Tom Martienssen in conversation with writer and broadcast journalist Simon Parker. GAUCHO is an evocation of a dying way of life and a portrait of a true original, Heraldo Rial, an eighty-year-old cattle rancher who embodies the traditional ranching culture of his Patagonian ancestors. Gauchos’ are proud, self-reliant cowboys living on the edge of the known world in an immense land virtually untouched by man. Grazing their herds in glacial valleys under mountain peaks.
