"Whatley has done English readers not versed in French a major service by providing an annotated translation of Lry's fascinating text." -- Virginia Quarterly Review
"[This] clear and well-referenced translation will benefit anyone who cares about the early history of the European venture in Brazil, the history of religion, or the Tupinamb, the violent, wily, honorable, and endearing people among whom Lry spent over a year and whom he missed for the rest of his life." -- David Fleming, South American Explorer
