Chapter Summary

This index is the list of terms and names that occur in this book titled Chains of Gold. The book examines the social, economic, and cultural contexts in which this strategy developed, the experiences of those who pursued it, and the multiple paths followed by migrants as they settled in different destinations. By taking the less explored 'south to south' perspective (southern Europe and South America), it seeks to illuminate larger questions about transatlantic labor migrations, namely how rural Europeans became transnational workers and contributed to creating diverse immigrant communities in the Americas. The book provides a vivid account of the trajectories of migrant men and women as they moved from rural Portugal to contrasting places of settlement in the Argentine pampas and Patagonia.

Keywords: Europe; labor migration; Patagonia
