And I’d love to share it with you. Tales from South America is filled with stories about everyday life, the weird and wonderful legends, and the extraordinary people of South America. It’s also, in a way, an account of a young woman’s coming of age, a glimpse into what it was like to be growing up in post-Soviet Lithuania, and a tale of a lone motorcycle adventure across one of the most magical continents on Earth.
I don’t expect you to learn Elvish.
But if you love strange and obscure adventures, places, and communities, Tales from South America: Everyday Life, Legends, and People might just be for you.
