A VIEW OF THE WORLD. SELECTED JOURNALISM
Collected between these covers are twenty of Norman Lewiss finest pieces of travel writing, spanning a period of 30 years. He brings us face to face with Castros executioner, with a tragic Ernest Hemingway and with the unchanged lifestyle of fishermen in an unspoilt Ibiza. He describes the gentle pleasures of Belize, the ferocious blood feuds of Sardinian bandits and the unpleasant duty of repatriating Cossacks to the Soviet Union in 1944. At the heart of the collection is Lewiss famous report on the genocide of the Brazilian Indians, which led to the creation of Survival International which campaigns for the rights of tribal peoples. This, Lewis felt, was the most important achievement of his professional life.
