Here is a story of Balboa, discoverer of the Pacific Ocean that is unlike any ever written before. It is a biography de l'esprit an account not merely of historical evets strung together like reconstructed skeletons in a museum but rather a subjective vision, the personal inward experiences of loving men as seen through the eyes of one of their contemporaries, who accompanied the great one on his historical quest of the Other Sea. The autho'rs point of departure is the view once expressed by the German philosopher, Hegel that all history is a book of dreams Rejecting straight reportage, he seeds to penetrate however slightly the soul image of men alien to and remote fromn our own age Mr Garrison correctly places tragic emphasis on the nobility of Balboa who, unlike his compatriots was a man who sought peace in an age of violence
