Follows a group of young adventurers as they echo an expedition first made 40 years ago by Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Doug Tompkins (original founder of The North Face). Navigating from California to Chile, with an unplanned stop at Rapa Nui (Easter Island), the modern day adventurers explore the wild coasts and mountains of Patagonia. During their quest to surf and climb, they are exposed to the harmful effects of industry on the environment, as well as the courageous efforts of local people who are trying to preserve the wilderness. Book parallels the film 180° South trip, and tells of the journey with words and images not seen in the film.
