Santos Dumont at the falls: "i do intend to write a book about Iguassu"


Micael Alvino da Silva


Alberto Santos Dumont (1873-1932), Biografia, Cataratas do Iguaçu, Fronteira Trinacional – Brasil – Argentina – Paraguai


In "Santos Dumont at the Falls", Micael Alvino da Silva transports readers back to the final decades of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. He provides insights into the global context and the tri-national border region when Alberto Santos Dumont visited Iguassu Falls in 1916. The book, with an engaging writing style, comprises concise essays interweaving chapters that intricately showcase every facet of the renowned aviator's journey, consistently drawing connections with the land of Naipi. Santos Dumont's extraordinary visit to the Falls is now immortalized in this book. This work fulfills the aviator's desire to write about Iguassu—a wish he could not fulfill during his lifetime. Nearly a century after his passing, EDUNILA in partnership with 100 Fronteiras Institute and supported by Itaipu Binacional and Fundo Iguaçu, takes great pleasure in presenting this narrative to the public.
