Six years in Bolivia – The Adventures of a Mining Engineer

by Anselm Verener Lee Guise with a new introduction by Mariselle Meléndez

“Guise was a young British mining engineer appointed to the post of assistant manager of a tin mine in the first decades of the twentieth century.
Six Years in Bolivia (first published in 1922) recounts his story as a doctor, entomologist, horticulturist, judge, and culinary instructor. His experiences with the native Bolivians of the high plateaus and jungles provide a portrait of their customs, diseases, diversions, dressing and eating habits, and flora and fauna.

The new introduction by Mariselle Meléndez puts Guise’s travelogue into perspective and connects his views with the times in which he lived.

Six Years in Bolivia is perfect for the armchair traveler and those readers interested in Latin American culture and history.”
