Published in 1866, this book details the author’s trip to Brazil and somewhat of a report to the people of the Southern states after the War Between the States to show that their is another place that they could start a new life and not live in the current conditions of reconstruction or the United States’ despotic style of government.
Many southerners went to Brazil after reading books similar to this one. A few remained in Brazil while others eventually returned to the United States. See my earlier article at https://goo.gl/XNXUXf for details.
