Don Segundo Sombra () – IMDb
The unnamed narrator is a guachoan orphan or waif — not to be confused with gaucho. To become a gaucho — free of his meddlesome aunts and the irritating life of the town — is his he In preparation for an upcoming trip to Argentina November-DecemberI have read the three classics of the gaucho way of life. To become a gaucho — free of his meddlesome aunts and the irritating life of the town — is his heartfelt goal.
At a local pulperiahe meets a real gaucho, one Don Segundo Sombra, a man of skill, judgment, and great equanimity. He runs away from his somgra, following him, and gets a job at a nearby ranch. Don Segundo becomes, in effect, segunndo hero, whom he calls his godfather throughout the book. Don Segundo Segumdo is an evocation of the gaucho way of life, its freedom, its dangers, and its rewards.
By the time Guiraldes wrote it, the way of the gaucho was largely a thing of the past, a thing to be commemorated in museums and in legends. I was reminded while reading it of W. Hudson’s equally evocative work sdgundo a childhood on the pampas in his Far Away and Long Ago. I wish the book were back in print, because I think it is a classic in a minor key — and an indispensable work for understanding the Argentinean psyche.

The other more simplistic parable is about lessons of hard work, honesty, loyalty and so forth. Jan 19, Soycd rated it really liked it. Don segundo es un personaje muy interesante.

It extensively uses “gaucho” vocabulary, which difficults the read yet it gives the book personality and helps the environment of the story.
It is a slow book, which translates to the slow life of the main character. To me, personally, the ending was the best part and what made the book worthwhile I had to read it for an assignment- otherwise I would have probably never finished it. Dec 19, Emmy rated it liked it.
