☯Bettie☯ Sorely need to up the participation in this category.


message 2: by Hayes (new)

Hayes Only thing I've read recently is The Lacuna, but that's Central America, not South.

I didn't score a one on the entries in the list so far! And that is a dismal state of affairs isn't it!

*flagellates softly*

ETA upon searching the personal shelves there are 4 non-fictions I have read and added.


message 4: by Hayes (new)

Hayes Marquez, Allende...

Allende! does that count? Daughter of Fortune


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Best I could do as of now is 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus; however, am taking a class on the Inca, so we'll see about later.


message 6: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ I think this list tends towards the factual dontcha fink?...

"Books on the history and culture of South American Countries"

I think I will add Chasing Eichmann


message 7: by Hayes (new)

Hayes I think you're right... just the facts, ma'am.

I haven't read anything that fits the bill.


message 8: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ Oooh - just thought. I have the most fantastical book about the Maya - one to die for. Given by a former beau (the same one that sent me a pony with a cerise ribbon tied in a bow around its middle for Valentine's Day)

There is a similar list on Central America: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/11...


message 10: by Julia (new)

Julia Boechat Machado And the list tends toward non fiction, as you all have guessed, but books depicting the history and culture of South America are allowed (for instance, By Night in Chile, by Bolaño.)


message 11: by Julia (last edited Jan 29, 2012 07:11AM) (new)

Julia Boechat Machado The books The Path Between the Seas (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23...) and The Darkest Jungle (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/42...) are about Panama, in Central America, not South America. I'll delete them, but there is a list about the history and culture of Central America. The link is in the previous post.


message 12: by David (new)

David This is a great list. I confess that some of my picks are Mexican, but it's Latin America that fascinates me.


message 13: by Mirta (new)

Mirta Trupp With Love, The Argentina Family: Memories of Tango and Kugel; Mate with Knishes

Follow the sometimes comical, sometimes poignant trials and tribulations of a girl coming to terms with her Jewish heritage, her Argentine traditions and a fierce patriotism to her new country.

As one of my Amazon reviewers stated, "I really enjoyed the spirited journey of the author as she explores her cultural transition from Argentina to the sunny shores of California. It is rich and flavorful with the innocence of youth, the understanding and perspective that comes with age and exploration. Written in an easy to read format, it is satisfying on many levels; cultural, religious, family, generational and genealogical all at once. I love her visits back to Argentina and the "coming home" to California experience. I want a sequel to be written!"


message 14: by Jim (new)

Jim Too many Mexican books -- that's not really South America.


message 15: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Removed 1 book on Mexico. Checked for duplicates.


message 16: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Removed one book on Panama, one book on Nicaragua, one book on the Maya (Mesoamerica)
