Description: “Patagonia is called the White Mother by her children” wrote the Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral in her verses to that remote land that stares at the South Pole. The White Mother sees 47 great glaciers grow on her ice of the Austral Andes including Perito Moreno, the colossal frigid body that advances without stopping. South of Perito, at the end of the cold world of snow and steppes, the writer who brought the first Nobel Prize in literature to the Latinamerican continent was a school director. In Patagonia’s long night, she hid between the “eternal fog” amidst “the white plains of infinite horizon.”
