There is a legend in the Patagonia area of Argentina that a monster lives in Lake Nahuel Huapi. The monster, known as the Nahuelito, is said to attack and destroy boats. Martin Sheffield, an American who actually lived in the vicinity in the first decades of the 20th century, is one of the people who supposedly saw it. His great granddaughter Sarah, a young woman in Vermont, has been interested in the legend since she was a child. A journalist from Vermont wants to investigate the legend and goes to Patagonia. The owner of the main newspaper in Patagonia is also interested in investigating the legend and invites Sarah to come and assist with the project. Martin’s daughter still lives in the area unbeknownst to Sarah.

The search for the Nahuelito is an adventure with a number of surprising twists and turns. Most of the story is based on a real legend. The Patagonian cultures of the past and the present play significant roles.

De eerste 50 bladzijden zijn behoorlijk pittig. Maar dan gaan de personen in het verhaal voor je leven. Helemaal leuk wordt het voor een Nederlander als de hoofdpersoon in Bariloche aankomt en in El Hotel LlaoLlao gaat overnachten. Is dat niet het hotel waar onze prins Willen Alexander voor het eerst een ontmoeting had met zijn aanstaande schoonvader Jorge Zorreguieta ? De rest van het verhaal leest heel prettig, geholpen door de vertalingen ( in het Engels ) van de moeilijkste woorden onder aan de bladzijde.
Vreemd is wel dat het monster "pescadores "( blz 160 ) verslindt uit het meer. Ik dacht dat je die alleen op je bord tegenkwam.
