by George Henry Borrow (1842)
George Borrow''s adventure in 1830s Spain "consists of a narrative of what occurred to me during a residence in that country, to which I was sent by the Bible Society, as its agent for the purpose of printing and circulating the Scriptures. It comprehends, however, certain journeys and adventures in Portugal, and leaves me at last in ''the land of the Corahai,'' to which region, after having undergone considerable buffeting in Spain, I found it expedient to retire for a season." His tale is more than just a travelogue and a record of sights and scenes; the author had an exceptional ability to deal with people of all stations - and in many languages - which allowed him to learn much more about customs, beliefs and traditions than any of the other annalists of the day.
