Monsters of Patagonia

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 31st, 2012

I have not yet seen this recently published book – Monsters of Patagonia by Austin Whittall – but, I intend ordering it this week. The blurb describes it as “…a guide to its giants, dwarves, lake creatures and mythical beasts.”

    It’ll be a neat book I’m sure. Patagonia comes from the word Patagon, which, though heavily debated, is believed to mean “Big feet”, in reference to a Giant Indian Tribe that was supposidly encountered by magellan and other Europeans. They where probably exaggerated encounters with the Tehuelches (Indians which averaged about 6 feet tall, still gigantic to Europeans a little over 5 feet tall). Also probably inspired as well by giant Dinosaur fossils, which are abundant in Patagonia (Argentinosaurus, 100 ton dinosaur, for example, was found there)
