TBT: History of the discovery and conquest of Costa Rica

July 5, 2019

For a unique look into Costa Rica’s past, you can’t do much better than the 1913 book, “History of the discovery and conquest of Costa Rica.”

The book is available for free in its entirety and contains an abundance of early-1900s pictures of Costa Rica.

The featured photo shows “Talamanca Indians navigating the Sixaola River,” according to the caption.

“With the rest of Costa Rica, Talamanca, as far as its geological formation, fauna, flora and ethnology are concerned, is in perfect harmony,” the book reads.
