Bigg-Wither headed a group of engineers that explored the Ivai Valley as part of a plan to build a railroad across South America from the Atlantic to the Pacific. "The book he wrote, written in a fluent and picturesque style, is of great interest and full of excellent observations about the colonial region and the 'sertao' of Parana. It is certainly one of the best travel books about that part of Brazil" Borba de Moraes, Bibliographia Brasiliana, p. 106. Bookseller Inventory # 56880
