“Mr. Mindar’s prose is freighted with just enough detail to make his scenes feel tangible. His sentences never feel forced or over-written.” — Amazon Review
“Tierra del Fuego is a sparsely and beautifully written novella about what it takes to overcome loss and how travel and new experiences can bring one back to life. Mindar captures, in this short book, the essence of what it means to be human and to discover that no one person’s grief is greater than another’s. Love and loss are universal, and so is hope.” –Melanie Neale, author of Boat Girl: A Memoir of Youth, Love, & Fiberglass, 2012
