Description:

**Stated first printing** 1992 Pristine copy of a truly amazing and eccentric book. From back cover. "In 1886, Bernhard Forster and Elisabeth Nietzsche arrived in Paraguay with a boatload of German peasants. They planned to create a pure Aryan settlement in the jungle, which would one day cover the whole of Latin America. The venture failed, but what became of the colony? Ben Macintyre set off to find out." --The (London) Sundy Telegraph. "There's something irresistbly eccentric about a book that combines a crazed quest through Paraguay's remoter swamps with an exposeo of the anti-semitic sister of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche -- but they both play their legitimate part in this cracker of a strange true story." --Literary Review. Includes rare and vintage photographs. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Macintyre describes his 1991 journey to the Paraguayan site where Elisabeth Nietzsche and her husband founded a utopian Aryan colony in 1886. He also traces her return to Europe in 1889 to care for her sick brother, philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and her orchestration of his rise to fame.
