In 1825 Captain Francis Bond Head retired from the army to take up a post with a mining company to survey and report on mining opportunities in Chile and Argentina. This mission earned him the nickname “Galloping Head” as a result of his travels back and forth across the continent and gave him the material for this book, which was much admired by Charles Darwin on his own journey from ocean to ocean six years later.
