About this title


Two cultures, one violent encounter. The latest novel by Sylvia Iparraguirre is based on the story of a Ymara Indian named Jemmy Button. In 1830, a British sea captain took Jemmy from his native land, Cape Horn (Cabo de Hornos), Argentina, with the intent of taking him to London and converting him into a polished and civilized man. Jemmy was then returned to his homeland to influence the barbaric people to become civilized like the British. It is only during a trial in the Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands) that it is revealed to the reader just how miserably the experiment had failed.

About the Author:

Silvia Iparraguirre, Junin, Buenos Aires, Argentina, was the winner of the Sor Juana Ins de la Cruz award, 1999.
