In Brazil: Encountering festivals, gods and heroes in one of the world's most seductive nations

Author(s): Fran Bryson

Contemporary Non-Fiction

In Brazil, you can commune with spirits and you can party with gods. In Brazil, you can learn a lot about life, heroes, and possibilities.
We might think we know about Brazil. We've watched the World Cup, we've heard about the danger and the corruption, we've seen the samba and the rainforest. But Brazil still holds secrets.
Over many years, Fran Bryson developed a fascination with Brazil that slowly became an obsession. In the course of several journeys she discovered the country: from the glittering modern city of Brasilia to the small, deeply religious towns, and from the inner reaches of the Amazonian jungle to the vibrant backlands - home to cowboys and troubadours.
In Brazilis Fran's experience of travelling through one of the world's most colourful and contradictory nations and, in doing so, making sense of her life and the world around her.
