Here, like a treasure chest, are Norman Lewis’s most powerful pieces of writing, chosen by John Hatt. The polished gems of a whole life of writing on the road, reflecting a world now totally lost to us. From Yemen of the Imams to bandit chieftains, Neapolitan men of honor and tribal chieftains in Central America, as well as darker scenes: the doomed cultures of French rule in Indo-China, Cossacks being sent home to their death, and the quiet holocaust of the indigenous peoples in the jungles of South America. This is a book of immense range and power, informed by an extraordinary lightness of touch: humor, humanity, and the telling detail.
