Book - 2000
Rate this:
Although the mysterious, beautiful Atacama rises out of the Pacific, it is the driest place on earth, with powers of preservation so strong it still holds many of its earliest inhabitants in thrall, mummified by nature. As Lake Sagaris journeys into Atacama, where foreign mining companies, including Canadian, plunder the desert for treasures left by volcanic eruptions of the past, she interweaves the story of La Tirana who created her own community in fierce resistance to the Spanish invaders and died at the hands of her people moments before her marriage to a Christian captive. Bone and Dream, brilliantly fusing fiction and non-fiction, is a tribute to those who ventured into the desert over thousands of years and melded into its surface of rock and bone.
