LA CONQUISTA DEL TRÓPICO. EXPLORADORES Y BOTÁNICOS EN EL ECUADOR DEL SIGLO XIX

As time goes by, the information contained in documents collecting historical facts undergoes an abysmal transformation. In the first instance, recent history does not appear to have much importance since practically all these facts reside in the collective memory, it does not have much novelty to readers. As time pass, this memory becomes more valuable. With the aformentioned, we can say that the documents of William Jamenson Aloisio (Luis) Sodiro and Jules Remy, who make this work, constitute a profuse source of varied information that covers different areas of knowledge, ranging from descriptions of daily life situations, with anecdotes.
