Description

The name Che Guevara is synonymous with Latin America. This classic anthology on Latin America shows the Argentine-born revolutionary's cultural depth, rigorous intellect and intense emotional engagement with a continent and its people. Selected from his family's personal archives, this book offers the best of Che's writing: examples of his journalism, essays, speeches, letters and even his poetry, revealing the evolution of an extraordinary mind from that of an impressionable young medical student to the heroic guerrilla, brutally assassinated in Bolivia. This anthology of Che Guevara's writing on Latin America is destined to become an instant classic comparable to Eduardo Galeano's Open Veins of Latin America. I consider my country to be not only Argentina but the entire Americas. — Ernesto Che Guevara
