At Home with the Patagonians : A Year's Wanderings over Untrodden Ground from the Straits of Magellan to the Rio Negro In submitting the following pages to the public, I am conscious that some readers who desire exact and scientific descriptions of the geography and geology of Patagonia will be disappointed; but it must be urged as an apology that instruments could not be carried nor safely used under the circumstances. The course travelled was as carefully laid down, by the help of a compass, as was possible; and the map of the country is so far accurate, and, if incomplete, at least is not imaginative. To others who may perhaps eagerly expect tales of stirring adventure and hair-breadth escapes, such as are usually recounted as the every-day occurrences of uncivilised life, I can only express the hope that this faithful record of life with the Indians all the year round, if not very sensational, will serve at least to make them really at home with the Tehuelches. It is a pleasanter task to record my thanks to those by whose assistance the results of my journey have been utilised; foremost of whom is the venerable ex-President of the Royal Geographical Society, Sir RODERICK MURCHISON, whose kindly reception and introduction of the returned traveller to the Society are gratefully acknowledged. My obligations are scarcely less to-i - CLEMENTS MARKHAM, C.B., whose unrivalled knowledge of the early history as well as the geography of South America has been freely placed at my disposal; and to Dr. HOOKER, Director of the Royal Gardens, Kew, for his courteous assistance in identifying some of the plants observed: while to Mr. RUDLER, of the Museum of Mines, I am indebted for a careful classification of the various specimens of rocks and minerals collected in the country. Lastly, the reader will share in my gratitude to Mr. ZWECKER, whose able pencil has created, out of rough outlines sketched in a pocket-book, the vivid and faithful illustrations which bring before his eyes the scenery and incidents of life in Patagonia.

A scholar of the Biblical canon, Eusebius of Caesarea became counsellor of Constantine the Great and is regarded as an extremely learned Christian of the fourth century. Today his fame chiefly rests as a historian, whose pioneer work ‘Ecclesiastical History’ provides a chronological account of the development of Early Christianity from the first century to the fourth century. Eusebius also wrote an informative ‘Life of Constantine’, famously narrating the emperor’s victory at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge and his dramatic conversion to Christianity. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Eusebius’ collected works in English translation, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
