Erwin Boschmann

Author Erwin Boschmannabout this book: PARAGUAY – A Tour Guide is the only English language guidebook on this country. After the American journalist and humorist P. J. O'Rourke visited the country he said "it is nowhere to be found, and famous for nothing." Later he came to love the country.

Paraguay has been labeled a "Must Read" book, of which Judy O'Bannon, former first lady of Indiana, said "it touches your mind, heart, and senses."

Learn about the Jesuits and their huge influence how in the 1700s they saved the native population from slavery. These Guarani Indians learned the modern ways, including how to carve wood and stone, play instruments, plant crops, and how to weave.

Go north, south, west and east of the capital city Asuncion. What is the bottle dance? Why are the guitar and the harp such prominent musical instruments?

You will learn about Guaraní, ñanduti, sopa Paraguaya, yerba mate, algorrobo, mandioca, long life milk, the Southern Cross, and the reversal of periods and commas. Don't know what some of these terms mean? Get the book!
