May 10: A Knight Among Cannibals (Vol. 33, pp. 326-341)
Sir Walter Raleigh again, this time writing about a 1595 trip to Guiana as part of his South American voyage in search of gold and treasure to plunder. This is another one of those Elizabethian-era travelogues by an explorer bemused by cultures alien to his own.
