Summary
In the early twentieth century, at Lazispils, a small town lost in a region of Livonia (Latvia), the Lutheran pastor Waldemar Salis, who wishes to improve the miserable lives of his parishioners, begins to dream of the mythical America. He announces the arrival of a commission with a mandate to recruit immigrants to Brazil. To those who want to try their luck, the commission offers free land to develop and is paying for the trip. Salis convinces some of his flock to follow him to the promised land and, just as Moses had delivered his people from the yoke of Pharaoh, he would lead his own in America, far from the yoke of the Czar, the Russian language and false belief. One morning the little band left the village to take the train to Riga. They then went to Hamburg, where they sailed for the port of Santos. The crossing is the most challenging for travelers who dream of happiness in the village of Nova Europa which they hope to found upon arriving in the region of São Paulo. But the coveted dream will prove a terrible failure. The author, Kokis Sergio, was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1944 and has lived in Montreal for four decades
