180 Degrees South - Conquerors of the Useless
An in-depth look at the motivations and sensibilities of the people on both sides of the camera of the 180° South film.
Chris Malloy and Jeff Johnson ventured on a journey inspired by an obscure 1960s film, where they journeyed from Ventura to Chilean Patagonia and decided to make a film about it. This book published by Patagonia is the story of that journey and film. 180° South tells the story of this trip with words and images not seen in the film. It tells of the inspirational and life-changing experience that was Mountain of Storms, and how that set Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins on a lifetime of fighting to save wilderness. It tells of the inspiration they provided to Chris and Jeff and their desire to do something similar. Paperback edition with colour photos.
