Biyaheng Pinoy: A Mindanao Travelogue
Biyaheng Pinoy: A Mindanao Travelogue by Edilberto N. Alegre is one of the most significant Mindanao travelogues written in recent times. It chronicles the author’s extensively varied travels across Mindanao while documenting highlights of his sojourns in thirty-six well-written essays. He wrote of the places of great interest to him, indigenous people he encountered, events he witnessed as he journeyed, people he got to know, and the varieties of ingredients and ways of cooking foods distinctive to those places. This book is a journey of a mind actively at work in doing baseline cultural research and reflecting the author’s work; such a design for a book is virtually a kind of intellectual biography.
