Synopsis: History of Paraguay is an extraordinary book about this Republic of South America, the Paraguay. Although it was written in the XIX century, this book is fundamental to understand the roots of the Paraguayan War (1865-1870) as well as the character of South American nations. Its author, Mr. Charles Ames Washburn, was a US Minister in this country from 1861 to 1868, so he was an eyewitness to tragic events that took place in Paraguay at that time. It is a fundamental book for those who want to understand the soul of South America. This first volume covers from the discovery of Paraguay to begining of Francisco Solano Lopez government.

About the Author: Charles Ames Washburn was born in Livermore, Maine, March 16, 1822.. Graduated from Bowdoin college and went to work in the land office in Washington, DC. He went west to joined the California Gold Rush in 1849. The gold he found financed his career as a writer and editor of a San Francisco newspaper. In 1861 he was appointed by President Lincoln Minister Resident to Paraguay, where he remained until 1868. He married Sallie Catherine Cleaveland in New York on May 11, 1865.
