"Geografías imaginarias" is a collection of travel accounts compiled by Ernesto Livon-Grosman that reconstructs the political fabric of Patagonia through both history and myth. Livon-Grosman reconfigures the literature created by these travelers to form a rigorous map that connects the unique observations and perspectives each of them. He also questions the compartmentalization between the natural-born resident and the foreigner, inside and outside, and the public and private spheres. Contents include: "La literatura de viaje: género, naturaleza y nación", "Antonio Pigafetta, Thomas Falkner y Charles Darwin: fundación y mito de la Patagonia", "Francisco P. Moreno: La fundación del Museo y los límites de la nación", and "William Henry Hudson: Un transcendentalista en la Patagonia"
