Leprechauns in Latin America relates the South American leg of Norman and Maggie Magowan’s astonishing journey. It begins chasing volcanoes in Chile down to the end of the world, where accident and misfortune dog the early days of the trip.
These episodes ultimately turn to advantage and triumph as the metronome to this fantastic adventure is set. The duo readily yield to the torpid tango wonderland that is Argentina, where all sense of time and schedule are quickly abandoned.
Riding across the Altiplano, the pace is enlivened by their flight from strike-ravaged La Paz. Relief from the madness of Bolivia proves to be short lived when they run headlong into a real-life lynch-mob up on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
The rich tapestry of this South American sojourn is stitched with fabled romances involving a little Cowboy, the miracles of an un-sainted desert heroine and a ghastly murder in the Galapagos.
