Item description for Quince dias en las soledades americanas (Coleccion Barbaros) by Carola Moreno Alexis de Tocqueville...

This look at Alexis de Tocqueville's 1831 travels to the United States with his friend and colleague Gustave de Beaumont gives us a glimpse into the colonization of the United States. Weaving together the story of early American society with the inevitable destruction of both its natural landscapes and the natives that inhabited them, this text deals with contemporary themes of human concern for nature's fragility and the capacity to transform surroundings.
En 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville se embarca con su amigo y compaero de la carrera judicial, Gustave de Beaumont, hacia los Estados Unidos. Sus experiencias le permiten asistir al proceso de colonizacin estadounidense. Tocqueville presenta un retrato en el que se entrelaza el proceso de construccin de la sociedad estadounidense con la inexorable destruccin, tanto del entorno natural como de las tribus indias que lo habitaban. Trata temas radicalmente contemporneos, como la preocupacin tan actual por la fragilidad de la naturaleza y la enorme capacidad del ser humano para transformar su entorno.
