The Rediscovery of North America
(Lexington), University Press of Kentucky, (1990). An essay on the ongoing consequences of the Spanish "conquest" of the New World and the need to rediscover the land the Spaniards "discovered." Warmly inscribed by the author to Peter [Matthiessen]: "respectful bow, abrazos fuertes." Laid in is a typed letter signed from Lopez to Matthiessen, dated in 1991, thanking Matthiessen for sending his book African Silences and sending this book in return: "As I grow older, or see more of this ravaged Earth, I find my voice less tempered." Folded, else fine. The book is near fine in a fine dust jacket. [#032496] $500
