Augustus Young was born in Cork in 1943. Four of his other books have been published with Menard.

Eric Hobsbawm writes of the present volume: 'Young's new book has two considerable merits. It introduces English readers to the world of the traditional bandits of the Brazilian North-East, and at the same time to the world of the ballad-singers and the public which has kept their memory alive to this day. It also provides English versions of these compositions. North-East Brazil os far away but the predicament of the poor is universal, as the readers of these ballads will discover.'

Translated and introduced by Augustus Young
