Euclides da Cunha's classic account of the brutal campaigns against religious mystic Antonio Conselheiro has been called the Bible of Brazilian nationality."Euclides da Cunha went on the campaigns [against Conselheiro] as a journalist and what he returned with and published in 1902 is still unsurpassed in Latin American literature. Cunha is a talent as grand, spacious, entangled with knowledge, curiosity, and bafflement as the country itself. . . . On every page there is a heart of idea, speculation, dramatic observation that tells of a creative mission undertaken, the identity of the nation, and also the creation of a pure and eloquent prose style."—Elizabeth Hardwick, Bartleby in Manhattan

4.0 Rebellion in the Backlands
Dica: Este livro é dividido em 4 tomos. Ignore os dois primeiros (são CHATOS PARA CARAMBA) e comece a partir do terceiro. É aí que o autor começa a contar a vida de Antônio Conselheiro. E no final, em que as tropas do governo esmagam a Revolta, é es-tar-re-ce-dor!
