Venezuela Heroica

Historical Vignettes


Eduardo Blanco

For more than a century, Venezuela Heroica has been a source of inspiring stories for Venezuelan schoolchildren. Now ably translated and profusely annotated, the book retains the literary beauty and entertaining character of the original, presenting a vivid account of the Venezuelan wars waged against Spain while seeking independence. Stories of the major battles and the most famous heroes of the Independence Wars, as well as reflections on the conditions, political and otherwise, that attended the first decades of the Republic, can now be further enjoyed in this insightful and masterful translation.
