"Backlands" - a Tale of Brazilian Folk Heroes by Victoria Shorr

Backlands When historical fiction is done well, the reader gets the opportunity to live in a different time and place; to be absorbed in the sights, the sounds, and the smells; to feel what it might be like to life a completely different life.

Victoria Shorr

Join us this week on Writers' Voices to learn how Victoria Shorr painted the backlands of Brazil in her novel, "Backlands."  Based on the legendary bandits, Lampiao and Maria Bonita, who ruled the desolate outback known as the Sertao in the early 1900's, Shorr evokes the romance and mystique, and foregone conclusion, of an era.
