Cautivadora primera novela de Brett Sanders  Mar 9, 2004
Con el lenguaje fresco, expresivo y llano de una mujer de pueblo (eficazmente vertido al castellano rural y coloquial de época, por Sebastián Bekes) la Dorotea de Brett Alan Sanders remite, por un lado, a la pastora Marcela del Quijote, que reivindica el libre derecho femenino a la elección amorosa, y representa atambién las vidas reales de no pocas "cautivas" en las pampas argentinas del siglo XIX: las que se ligaban por los vínculos del amor a la cultura donde habían entrado por obra de la violencia. Quizá porque, como ya lo demostrara Lucio V. Mansilla (personaje histórico que reencontramos aquí) ni los "bárbaros" eran tan "bárbaros", ni los supuestos "civilizadores" merecían muchas ve-ces semejante nombre.
El relato de Sanders combina gratamente elementos de la novela de aventuras, la novela sentimental, el alegato y de la descripción antropológica, en una narración tan profunda como
entretenida, que puede ser disfrutada igualmente por jóvenes y
por adultos, por los conocedores de la historia latinoamericana y
por aquellos que desean conocerla. Como Dorotea, es muy probable
que sus lectores terminen voluntariamente "cautivos" de este mundo que evoca.
- María Rosa Lojo, autora de La pasión
de los nómades y Amores insólitos de nuestra historia
A unique contribution to the Americas' understanding of ...  Mar 9, 2004
The figure of Dorotea Bazán - captured from a village in the Pampas, sometime in the 19 th century, by raiding Indians; who grew to love her tribal husband and children and deeply resented being "rescued", years later, by her countrymen - has long haunted Argentine imaginations. Her legend, earlier given a wide currency by folk singer Mercedes Sosa, is here given a new and lively incarnation: Brett Sanders skillfully blends Dorotea's story into that of Lucio Mansilla who, in his 1870 account of A Visit to the Ranquel Indians, first queried his century's stereotypes of "barbarism" and "civilization". The result is a unique contribution to the Americas' understanding of the often complex relationships between their diverse peoples.
- Eva Gillies, Ph.D (Oxford), translator
into English of Una excursión a los indios ranqueles
