Book Description1920. Found in this volume is the story of Antonio Conselheiro, the last of the Gnostics, who defied all the Brazilian forces for a year or so and was eventually slain with all his followers. The followers of Conselheiro were, almost to aman, what are known as Jaguncos, a term invented for the most prominent of the cattle men who live in the Sertao, and signifying something between a bully and a fighting-cock, and by degrees applied to all of them, as the term Guacho is in Argentina, Guaso in Chile, and Llanero in the vast, grassy plains upon Orinoco, to the same class of man.
