Abstract:

Whether it's chain-rattling apparitions, weeping statues of the Virgin Mary, or urban legends such as the "Phantom Hitchhiker, " this guide provides a fun and fascinating assessment of spooks, spirits, and things that go bump in the night. Brazil is the fifth-largest nation in the world. The largest country in Latin America, it covers almost half of South America. Discovered by Portuguese settlers in the early 16th century, Brazil today boasts a culture that blends native, Portuguese, African, Japanese, and other influences. During the past 40 years, there have been many changes in Brazil's society and economy. Schools and hospitals have become more available, highways have been built and industries developed, and modern conveniences have been introduced even in once-isolated areas. The country remains popular among tourists because of its friendly people and great beauty.
