In exchange for these off-topic moments in the text, an examination of Brazilian colonial history more inclusive of Indigenous narratives would have been more valuable to her argument. Women are all too often ignored in history, but Metcalf introduces these influential women to the reader and shows their significance in the Brazilian conquest and the Indigenous resistance movements. Within the field of Latin American history, Metcalf's book focuses on a mostly forgotten group of influenza during the conquest of Brazil.
Go-betweens have not been given exclusive attention by other authors to the extent that Metcalf's study does.
This book contains useful information for students and scholars of Latin American colonial history, Portuguese history, and Brazilian resistance narratives. Alida C.
