"Drawn by a Star" Is a Masterpiece of Mystery, Adventure & Inner Discovery
“Entertaining, original, funny, and above all, simply beautiful”. (Scottish review)
"Meg Robinson has the gift of writing straight from the heart." (Chris Stewart, author of Driving Over Lemons)
Interlaced with ASTUTELY ENTERTAINING TALES of the difficulties encountered by the independent traveller, "Drawn by a Star" is a captivating blend of history, travel narrative and spiritual autobiography.
In the new book "Drawn by a Star", Irish Andalucían-based artist and writer Meg Robinson documents an exhilarating personal quest charting the trials and triumphs of an intrepid South American journey.
With a dramatic backdrop of Patagonian ice-fields, Chilean fjords, forests and the snow-capped Andes, she takes us to the remote pioneer village of Tortel on her search for a story to make into a film.
Weaving astutely entertaining tales of the difficulties encountered by the independent traveller, informed accounts of the legacy of the European pioneers and introductions to characters as diverse as the Russian tarot reader who warns of a looming crisis and the intriguing Canadian wilderness guide with a mysterious past, "Drawn by a Star" is a beguiling book that brings an awe-inspiring landscape to life and beautifully conveys the experience of a series of profoundly transformational inner and outer adventures.
