Audacious, adventurous, idealistic ... Since she was a child, Anita Garibaldi was considered "different" from the other girls from peaceful town of Laguna. It wasn’t by accident that the Italian Giuseppe Garibaldi - in Brazil joining for the Republican cause - fell intensely in love, taking them to the center of a conflict that entered Brazilian history. From the revolutionary letters, many of them reproduced in the book, Heloisa Prieto narrates the trajectory of Anita Garibaldi, one of the main names of the Farroupilha Revolution (or Ragamuffin War), in a clear and accessible language for the children.
