Travel & Adventure

After decades of diligent research, Ãngela Furtado-Brum published the first collection of the traditional legends and tales of the Azores that had been handed down by word of mouth for centuries. Regina Oberschelp de Meneses translated them so that this impressive Azorean heritage can reach an even wider audience. These fascinating stories will inadvertently cast their spell over the reader who will dive into the mysterious world of the nine enchanted islands of the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. These tales possess the power to make the reader feel immersed in the midst of the archipelago’s past of pirates, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, historical and human foible and their unfaltering trust in the omnipresent Holy Spirit.
