From a personal experience with taxidermy and a series of anecdotes about the transfer of bones and graves (family and others), Cristóbal Marín narrates in this chronicle his long journey in search of information on the whereabouts of the Fuegians who, during the nineteenth century, died in London and other parts of Europe after being exposed in human zoos and fairs or analyzed, always against their will, by scientists and anatomists and, in some cases, educated in Western values with the purpose of refreshing civilized to their lands.
