The award-winning author of Patagonia: A Cultural History has lived in Argentina for a decade and has spent the past 25 years exploring Latin America, writing more than 20 guidebooks on it. In this issue of Beyond, to celebrate a new exhibition of gold artifacts in New York and Los Angeles, he examines the precious metal’s role in ancient civilizations. His own personal pot of gold this winter would be a trip to Buenos Aires: “To celebrate the centenary of tango song, and catch up with old friends who’d sing and dance with me.”
