From his youthful travels throughout Latin America until his death in Bolivia, Che was a prodigious writer. In this classic selection of his journalism, essays, speeches, letters and poems, the reader can observe Che's development from spectator to participant in the struggles of the Americas, and finally to theoretician of the Latin American reality.
It features exceptional photographs taken by Che himself throughout his travels; a comprehensive index and extensive annotation; unpublished poems including "To the Bolivian Miners, My tears for you Guatemala and Spain in America"; unpublished articles including "Macchu-Pichu: Enigmatic Stone of America, View from the Bank of the Greatest of Rivers, The Social Role of Doctors in Latin America" and "Workers of the United States: Friends or Enemies?" and excerpts from his first and last diaries.
Latin America will become an instant classic and is a perfect complement to the "Che Guevara Reader" (Ocean Press: Spring 2003) and "The Motorcycle Diaries" (Ocean Press: Spring 2003), published with exclusive access to Che's personal archive. Two-thirds of this book have never been published before.
In 2004, Robert Redford's film "The Motorcycle Diaries" will be released, along with Terrence Malick and Steven Soderbergh's filmic biography, ensuring that Che remains an icon that will not fade.
"In these present times, when for many, ethics and other profound moral values are seen to be so easilybought and sold, the example of Che Guevara takes on an even greater dimension." -Rigoberta Menchu
"Che is fairly intellectual for a Latino." -FBI file on Che Guevara
