Item description for Travelers' Tales Brazil: True Stories (Travelers' Tales Guides) by Annette Haddad & Scott Doggett...

Publishers Description
Brazil is a land of superlatives. It has the biggest freshwater fish and the rivers to go with them, the world's largest jungle, and the greatest number of species. Travelers' Tales Brazil explores these aspects and much more, from Carnaval to the shamanic spiritual traditions, as well-known writers chronicle a land where commingling of cultures — indigenous tribes, West Africans, Portuguese colonists — has created a people who fearlessly embrace life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Travelers' Tales Brazil: True Stories (Travelers' Tales Guides)?

I am amazed there are no other reviews for this book!  Jul 30, 2008
As I wite this I am probably 30% thru the book. I like it. The best way to think of it is as a Readers Digest of short personal stories as regards Brasil. There are at least Fifty of them, if you do not count the mini-stories that often appear at the end of the longer ones. And the longer ones typically run only a few pages. Thus, my favorite part of the book besides the varied subjects, authors, and writing is the brevity of the stories themsleves. You get a feel for some trip or part of Brazil that is different each time, and you can get thru a story in no time and come back without losing your place -- as there is none.

I might have given it five stars, but the writing varies from great to good, so it didn;t make top grade. But nonetheless, if you want to take a trip to Brasil as I do, this is worth a read to get a feel for the "culture" on the ground.
