Bahia

Not actual book cover.

In the midst of the economic decline—following drought and the end of slavery—in the province of Bahia in Northeastern Brazil, the poor of the backlands are attracted by the charismatic figure and simple religious teachings of Antonio Conselheiro, called “The Counselor,” who preaches that the end of the world is imminent and that the political chaos that surrounds the collapse of the Empire of Brazil and its replacement by a republic is the work of the devil.

The War of the End of the World is a 1981 novel written by Peruvian novelist Mario Vargas Llosa.

  • A powerful and outstanding experience.
  • Learn about the dark and fascinating violent times in Brazil.
