When the famous anthropologist Claude Lvi-Strauss arrived in Rio de Janeiro, he had one book in his pocket: Jean de Lry's History of a Voyage to the Land of Brazil. Lry had undertaken his fascinating and arduous voyage in 1556, as a youthful member of the first Protestant mission to the New World. Janet Whatley presents the first complete English translation of one of the most vivid early European accounts of life in the New World.
