Description:

Deep within the remote backlands of 19th century Brazil sits Canudos, a libertarian's paradise. Home of prostitutes, bandits, and beggars, Canudos embodies the revolutionary spirit in its purest and most apocalyptic form.

It is an exhaustively documented account of a historical event and a fundamental book in 20th century literature.
