    review Arauco author John Caviglia ↠ E-book or Kindle E-pub Arauco author John CaviglA fabulous shaggy beast of an epic novel I was won when Juan sets out on life under the influence of the romances of chivalry that turned Don uixote’s brains – Amadis of Gaul Orlando Furioso Hey I love those books myself; I’m glad they get a look in as the culture of the times even if inevitably their function is to contrast with the reality Yes as in Don uixote Still I liked to have an innocent idealistic main on the Spanish side but if you want earthy sorts there’s no shortage of them – beginning with Pedro the aging swashbuckler who takes Juan to his garishly costumed bosom Then on the Mapuche side I had Namku a shaman of his people He’s a shaman because he’s strange – an albino – and ‘weye’ too that is of the sexuality that was worse than the worst sin and blasphemy to the
