About this product
- DescriptionErnesto 'Che' Guevara's epic, revolution-inducing journey through Latin America was captured in his classic work, The Motorcycle Diaries. His second trip through the continent reveals the emergence of a revolutionary icon, captured in these writings - his diary entries, poetry, journalism and letters. Together, they document his life after leaving medical school, travelling through Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador and his witnessing of the US-inspired coup in Guatemala before travelling to Mexico where he encounters Fidel Castro.
- Author BiographyOne of Time magazine's icons of the century, Ernesto Che Guevara was born in Argentina in 1928. After graduating from medical school, he traveled throughout Latin America. After meeting Fidel Castro in Mexico, he joined the revolutionary forces that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in Cuba in 1959. He became a central leader of the Cuban revolutionary government and later led guerrilla missions to Africa and Bolivia, where he was assassinated in 1967on the orders of the CIA. His life has been dramatized in two recent popular movies: The Motorcycle Diaries (directed by Walter Salles, starring Gael Garcia Bernal) and Steven Soderbergh's epic Che (starring Benicio Del Toro). Ernesto Guevara is the younger son of Ernesto Che Guevara and Aleida March. He lives in Havana and works as a lawyer.
