Latin America: An Autobiographical Sketch by a Career Geographer
Robert N. Thomas
This series of narratives presents true accounts by an academic geographer as he traveled, taught and conducted research in the rich and fascinating cultural area commonly known as Latin America. All the events are based on fact. These events begin with the author's inital journey to Latin America in the summer of 1964. A series of vignettes follows including climbing the volcanoes of Irazu, Costa Rica, and Pacaya, Guatemala; Assassination of an American Ambassador; a visit to Leticia in the upper Amazon Basin; an adventure at the Haitian/Dominican Republic border; and a salute to the American Peace Corps. In most cases the interaction has a humorous dimension, usually poking fun at the author.
