Reseña del editor: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XIII. MADEIRA. Coast Scenery--Birds of Prey--Funchal--Fire-eaters--A Night's Romance--Nossa Senhora do Monte--A Novel Slide--Fruits and Flowers--Festivals--Wines--Wine-growers--The Grand Corral--Mountain Boads--S.

Here and there are houses, whose gleaming white walls glisten amidst the surrounding foliage, and higher up the heather and the pine throw a dark mantle over the peaks; until, some 5,000 feet above the sea, the mountains join hands with the white canopy of clouds which crowns them. As the steamer ploughs along, a ravine, with precipitous and rugged sides that yawn far back into the bosom of the hills until they are veiled in misty distance, is opened up; or a hamlet of toy houses, with white walls, green shutters, and scarlet roofs, nestling down in an emerald valley, comes into view; till at last the Bay of Funchal, with the s...
