The Amazon

Land without History

Euclides da Cunha
Edited by Lúcia Sá and Translated by Ronald W. Sousa

Library of Latin America

In the eight pieces that make up Land Without History, first published in Portuguese in 1909, Euclides da Cunha offers a rare look into twentieth century Amazonia, and the consolidation of South American nation states.
Mixing scientific jargon and poetic language, the essays in Land Without History provide breathtaking descriptions of the Amazonian rivers and the ever-changing nature that surrounds them.
Brilliantly translated by Ronald Sousa, Land Without History<$> offers a view of the ever changing ecology of the Amazon, and a compelling testimony to the Brazilian colonial enterprise, and its imperialist tendencies with regard to neighboring nation-states.
