About this product
- DescriptionArgentinian writer Eduardo Gutierrez (1851-1889) fashioned his seminal gauchesque vel from the prison records of the real Juan Moreira, a ble outlaw whose life and name became legendary in the Rio de la Plata during the late 19th century. John Chasteen's fast-moving, streamlined translation--the first ever into English--captures all of the sweeping romance and knife-wielding excitement of the original. William Acree's introduction and tes situate Juan Moreira in its literary and historical contexts. Numerous illustrations, a map of Moreira's travels, a glossary of terms, and a select bibliography are all included.
