An interesting and uncommon work written for Southerners who were considering leaving the United States in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. Borba de Moraes (p 235): Many American Southerners desired to emigrate to Brazil after the Civil War, for this country lent itself to the cultivation of cotton, and practiced slavery. Dunn, and others, came to make a study of Brazil. In this book he publishes several studies written by him and other emissaries, about the economic and agricultural situation in Brazil, with statistics. " Dunn "argues that conditions in the postwar south are unacceptable, disputes arguments that Brazil provides little economic opportunity for Southerners, and describes the land (Lizzieland') which he as picked out for a colony. He includes descriptions of the Brazilian government, tables of weather information, copies of letters and reports which favorably discuss economic prospects in Brazil...
