INDIAN AIR : Impressions of Travel in South America
By Paul Morand
'INDIAN air, in you I find again primitive America,' exclaims Morand, as the vast panorama of South America unrolls beneath the wings of his aeroplane. For it is air that symbolizes to Morand the soaring spirit of America. History and legend, fantasy and fact, are woven into these impressions with consummate skill. In Buenos Aires we dance the tango with beautiful Argentine senoritas. On the long rolling pampas, we watch the gauchos breaking wild horses. Always Morand snares the warmth, the color, and the intangible atmosphere that gives each place its individual flavor.
Both as a novelist and essayist, Paul Morand's wide knowledge, deft artistry, and Gallic humor have gained for him an international reputation. The admirable translation is by Desmond Flower.
