Reviews - What do customers think about The Far Horizons: Thirty Years Among The Gauchos Of Uruguay?

Yesteryears in Uruguay  Oct 30, 2007
This is an interesting book which reflects the first-hand impressions of an English immigrant to Uruguay. Highly recommended for all those interested in the history or rural life in South America's southern cone. Though somewhat disjointed, the book is a detailed, often-humorous outlook on how a foreigner must have felt when confronted with local idiosincrasies and habbits. A sort of 'Hitchhiker's Guide to Uruguay' of the early 1900s, it takes the reader through a variety of situations which the author himself experienced and how he often muddled his way out of them. An entertaining read, though the value of the editor's long and rather boring prologue is highly questionable.
