Description:

New York. 1945. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good.No Dustjacket. 27. 333 pages. hardcover. keywords: August 10. inventory # 16427. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE VIOLENT LAND is a novel in which striking individuals clash and merge. The unrelenting and often bloody struggle between Colonel Horacio da Silveira and the Badaró brothers for an area of virgin forest involves the boom town of Ilhéos and the surrounding countryside. Amado recounts the course oL that war between titans in a novel peopled by dozens of astonishing figures, packed with fascinating incident, and pervaded with a sinister and gripping atmosphere. Brazilian critics regard it as a great novel; there will be a multitude of readers here to agree with them. In the opening up of southern Bahia, Brazil experienced a ‘cacao-rush’ that more than matched California’s gold rush in drama, tragedy, and brawling humor. That pell-mell drive to be first to harvest gold from the unbelievably fertile cacao-producing lands was taken by Jorge Amado-an outstanding novelist of Brazil’s active literary world-as the background for his famous novel, Terras do sem fim. In Samuel Putnam, Senhor Amado has found a translator who deserves to be called a re-creator. The result is a lusty, credible, and sometimes breathless picture of a now lost way of life that readers in the United States will find at once strange for its tropical lushness and familiar for its frontier flavor.
