Loss and Wonder at the World’s End

Laura A. Ogden

Laura A. Ogden brings together animals, people, and things—from beavers, stolen photographs, lichen, American explorers, and bird song—to catalog the ways environmental change and colonial history are entangled in the Fuegian Archipelago of southernmost Chile and Argentina.

“Loss and Wonder at the World’s End is sharply, fiercely loving. It teaches us to live and think differently. This is a masterful, inspiring, wholly original work.”

Kathleen Stewart, coauthor of, The Hundreds
