Content: Back then, the region of Paraguay included Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia and Southern Brazil, i.e. all the territories crossed by the Paraguay River. It is a story of the South and central parts of South America. Before beginning the history of this area during the Spanish conquest by the Castilian Jean de Solís in 1516, Charlevoix identifies the riches and peculiarities of these territories (grass of Paraguay, fish, flora and fauna, mineral). Each volume is followed by supporting documents (travel diaries, letters, memories). History of colonization, natives, Jesuits, until 1747. This rich story is particularly well written, with a very subtle critical approach that make this book a classic of travel literature.
