Editorial Reviews


”With meticulous research and skillful writing, Lorandi communicates a passion for her material that will be felt by her readers. Ana de Leon’s exemplary translation . . . makes Lorandi’s scholarship on Bohorques available to an English speaking audience.” 
--The Americas

"This masterful book requires careful reading but offers profound insights into the ethnic and social tensions of the colonial Andes."
--American Historical Review

Praise for the Spanish edition:
"The implausible exploits of Pedro Bohorques make up a fascinating tale. . . . It is a story conveying the strangeness of the colonial Latin American past while also awakening a vivid, immediate sense for it."
--Hispanic American Historical Review

Format: Hardcover
This book has been an all time favorite. The old spanish dialect was some what cumbersome and a little less fluid than the transaltion into english. The Translation by Ms. De Leon is an absolutley phenominal accomplishment. This is the only english translation available from the original papers and I look forward to additional projects in the future by Ms De Leon and Ana Maria Lorandi. I am so glad that the time was taken to produce such a modern day masterpiece, for a more digestable work in literature.
