SALUDI A South American Journal by Margaret Culkin Banning

SALUDI A South American Journal

Email this review


With a light touch and a finger on the public pulse, Mrs. Banning, well known novelist, shares her experiences on a South American junket. There in personal vain, with humorous touch ( when she goes reverent over our diplomats), she makes pleasant record of her social whirl, skirting politics and the progress of feminism, revealing nothing startling, but making good entertaining reading for summer rocking chair brigades. She searches vainly for an American from the North who has ""blended"" south of the border. She talks to ambassadors and their wives -- and to maids in botels.
