The full title of this unique book is “Frontier Experience, or Epistolary Sesquipedalian Lexiphanicism from the Occident” – and I guarantee you have never read anything like it!... More > J.E.L. Seneker (1848-1916) had a distinguished career in education in eastern Tennessee. He traveled to the "wild west frontier" of the 1870s, and then described his trips in letters. Here is a brief sampling: "In former epistolary scribblements, I gave you the concatenation of concomitant circumstances initiatory to my transmigration to this remote section of the occidental portions of our columbian republican coadunation. ... In my brief swevens I endured circumvolation of pigwidgeons, cacodemons, and odible simulachres in my harns. ... I onerated my dorsal part with a portmanteau for the vectitation of my habiliments." You get the idea: although not a long book, reading it will be a challenge. Every page comes with a handy glossary, which keeps the task from being impossible. Enjoy… and good luck!< Less

Costaguana has a long history of tyranny, revolution and warfare, but has recently experienced a period of stability under the dictator Ribiera.

As it was little probable that I should make another journey into this country, I resolved to put off my return to Europe until a later date, and, cost what it might, either find those copies in the great convents or go to Lhassa—a journey which is far from being so dangerous and difficult as is generally supposed, involving only such perils as I was already accustomed to, and which would not make me hesitate at attempting it.”< Less
