The Boy Travellers in South America

Excerpt from The Boy Travellers in South America: Adventures of Two Youths in a Journey Through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentine Republic, and Chili With Descriptions of Patagonia and Tierra Del Fuego, and Voyages Upon the Amazon and La Plata Rivers The plan of this volume is almost identically that Of The Boy Travel lers in the Far East. Frank Bassett and Fred Bronson, with their aecom plished mentor, Doctor Bronson, have traversed the length and breadth Of the South American Continent from the Isthmus Of Panama to the Strait of Magellan. Twice have they crossed the Andes; they have descended the Madeira and the Amazon rivers; navigated the La Plata and the Paraguay; Visited the principal cities Of the continent, and studied the manners and customs Of the many people whom they encountered on their way. For the information of their friends and schoolmates at home they recorded the results of their travels and Observations, and it is the author's pleasure to tell the story Of their journey. The characters of the story are fictitious, but the descriptions of every thing coming under the Observation Of the Boy Travellers, or learned in their wanderings, are intended to be as nearly exact as possible. The author has not relied alone upon his personal knowledge of South America, but has drawn from the narratives of others who preceded or have followed him. It has been his earnest endeavor topresent a realistic picture Of South America; its lofty mountains, magnificent rivers, luxuriant forests, and fertile pampas, together with the many varieties Of people that form its populations; their governments as we find them today, and an epitome of their history from ancient times. He earnestly hopes for the same kindly reception by press and public that was accorded to his volumes of a similar nature concerning Asia and Africa.
