Aquel día, como de costumbre, había yo venido a esconderme bajo la sombra fresca de la piedra, a fin de pescar algunos bagresitos, que luego cambiaría al pulpero de La Blanqueada por golosinas, cigarrillos o unos centavos. Mi humor no era el de siempre; sentíame hosco, huraño, y no había querido avisar a mis habituales compañeros de huelga y baño, porque prefería no sonreír a nadie ni repetir las chuscadas de uso.

best remembered for his novel Don Segundo Sombra (1926). This work is a poetic interpretation of the Argentinian gaucho, the free-spirited vagabond cattle herder of the pampas (grasslands), and it has become a classic work of Spanish American literature. Latin American literature. In Latin American literature: The modern novel. history: Don Segundo Sombra (1926; Don Segundo Sombra ) by the Argentine Ricardo Güiraldes, Doña Bárbara (1929; Doña Bárbara ) by the Venezuelan Rómulo Gallegos, and La vorágine (1924; The Vortex ) by the Colombian José Eustasio Rivera.

Don Segundo Sombra is a 1926 novel by Argentine rancher Ricardo Güiraldes. Like José Hernández's poem Martín Fierro, its protagonist is a gaucho. However, unlike Hernandez's poem, Don Segundo Sombra does not romanticize the figure of the gaucho, but simply examines the character as a shadow (sombra) cast across Argentine history.

Ricardo Güiraldes (13 February 1886 - 8 October 1927) was an Argentine novelist and poet, one of the most significant Argentine writers of his era, particularly known for his 1926 novel Don Segundo Sombra, set amongst the gauchos. Güiraldes was born in Buenos Aires, the second son of a wealthy family of the old landowning aristocracy. His mother was Dolores Goñi, descendant of Ruiz de Arellano, who founded the village of San Antonio de Areco in 1730.

Argentine poet and writer. Español: Don segundo sombra.

Inspired in Don Segundo Ramirez, a cattle drover Ricardo Guiraldes met personally and whose tomb lies in San Antonio de Areco, very close to the author's own, don Segundo Sombra more than a novel is a lesson on the gaucho lifestyle.

Loved the book. I am familiar with it in Spanish and a previous translation! This new version is awesome! Sadness? The book arrived with notes in some pages and some underlining! Not good!

This was one of my favorite books in my childhood in Argentina. I had somehow forgotten it and decided to see if I'd enjoy it as much now as when I was a kid. It is a very well articulated story. Great style and prose.

This is a must-read for students of and experts in Spanish and Latin American Studies. I used it as a primary source in my doctoral dissertation in the field.

I confess that I stumbled across this book randomly, and picked it up on a whim. I'm glad I did, as it's a window into a culture most definitely not my own and a time not my own. As the afterword states, this book is not "original" in the sense of its plot or themes, since "Don Segundo Sombra" falls into the tradition of "coming of age"/bildungsroman stories where the wise older mentor guides his young charge into the ways of the world. What makes this book worth reading is its portrait of the Argentine gaucho world, in vivid detail. The chapters are short and punchy, and the novel goes briskly as a whole.

It should be noted for those with PC-antennae that in this very macho world, men are men, and women don't serve much purpose except for the gratification of male urges or as dance partners to try to pick up. In addition, a few racial epithets do fly from a few of the characters, but it's endemic to the characters themselves.

The most important thing for potential buyers to note in this listing is that this version is the Signet translation by Harriet de Onís, with an afterword by her. This paperback is most definitely **not** the translation by Patricia Owen Steiner, with an introduction Gwen Kirkpatrick and multiple critical essays. The description on the website of this version needs to be corrected. Please be aware of the particular edition that is on offer here, namely the old Signet Classics edition.
