About the book

Tertius de Klerk: Afrikaner, hapless academic and potential dinosaur under pressure from all sides dreams of escape. Like his great-grandfather Basjan before him, he flees South Africa for Argentina. It is an act of desperation, but also of adventure: this is his opportunity to look up his long-lost relations on the windswept plains of Patagonia where he might, finally, connect with the earth and make a man of himself.

Patagonia makes use of a double time setting, with Basjan’s story taking place during 1902–1940 in the Free State and in Patagonia. The 2015 events occur in Stellenbosch and in the Chabot region of Patagonia, where Afrikaans is spoken to this day.
