Abstract:

A classic portrait of an unforgettable country from one of Britain's best-loved writers. Following a period of illness, Rudyard Kipling followed his doctor's advice and took off, with his wife, on a long sea voyage from Southampton to Brazil. While in South America, he wrote seven gripping travelogues, published to great acclaim by newspapers in London and the USA. As Brazil hosts the Olympics, yet experiences intense political turmoil, this timely profile speaks of the history and character of this colorful nation. From the street life of Rio to the epic sweep of the Amazon and the mangrove forests of the Pantanal, it is an extraordinary journey recorded by one of our greatest writers. Brazilian Sketches stands at the beginning of a grand tradition of travel writing, a forerunner to the works of Colin Thubron, Paul Theroux, and Bruce Chatwin.
