Book Description
Lands of Fire by Don Downer is the true story of Bill Donner.

Born on Fogo Island in 1868, he survived a shipwreck at Tierra del Fuego, and island off Argentina, in 1886.

In 1914, during a visit home to Newfoundland, Bill married Margaret Anne Elliott of Fogo, a widowed mother of three.

Bill brought his new wife and her children to Argentina, and went on to establish a dynasty in the Argentinian region of Patagonia.

Lands of Fire by Don Downer documents life in South America at the turn of the century, and relates an astonishing tale of almost ten decades of letter writing to relatives back home in Newfoundland.
