Not really a history, really a journal of events by someone who was THERE. Was witness to events and had access to documents, letters etc. Antonio de Morga was Lt Governor of the Philippines around the start of the 17th century. This is not supposition or conjecture by some remote historian but actual reportage. He had, of course, a Spanish take on events but that is understandable. Sometimes it reads like an adventure story. Illuminating in that it wasn't a done deal to pacify the Philippines, shipwrecks, lack of supplies, sickness, the tenacity of the native population among others made the road long and hard. Additional short journals from English and Dutch adventurers. A surprisingly good read, not dry and wordy (perhaps the translation done in 1907 helped there). De Morga was a lively writer and I thank him for leaving this journal. I encourage Filipinos and those interested in the Philippines to read this book.

Dry as unbuttered cream crackers. A classic, apparently.
