Read in January, 2006

Fascinating travel book that discusses history while the author travels around a country that most people have never heard of, let alone visited. Can perhaps come accross as a bit negative in its persistant descriptions of Paraguay as a lawless wild west. Of course that might be just how life really is there, but I felt that there was perhaps a bit too much focussed on that aspect. Gets my vote especially as Gimlette's descriptions of Graham Greene turned me into a great fan of Greene's works.
