American Letters is a collection of writings by the Prussian scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt, published in 1826. These letters compile Humboldt’s observations, research, and reflections during his extensive scientific journey through Latin America, carried out between 1799 and 1804.
In the American Letters, Humboldt describes in detail the different aspects of the territories he explored, including Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, and Ecuador, among others. It addresses a wide range of topics, from geography and geology to flora, fauna, anthropology and indigenous cultures.
Humboldt provides vivid descriptions of the nature, landscapes, and geographical phenomena he encountered, as well as of the colonial societies and institutions of the time. It also analyzes the impacts of European colonization and examines the social, economic and political conditions of the countries visited.
In the American Letters, Humboldt demonstrates his interdisciplinary approach and commitment to the scientific method. His writing style is captivating and his deep and precise knowledge of the natural sciences, coupled with his social sensitivity, allows him to offer a comprehensive and holistic view of Latin America at the time.
These letters are valuable not only as a historical and scientific record, but also as a source of inspiration for future explorers and scientists. Cartas Americanos stands out for the richness of its observations, its scientific rigor and its contribution to our understanding of the American continent in the nineteenth century.
