Description

A new edition from Ocean Press of the young Che Guevara's lively and highly entertaining travel diary is published to coincide with the new movie from Robert Redford and Walter Salles based on the books. New features of this new edition include: * a new, completely revised translation * a tender preface by Che's daughter, Aleida Guevara, offering a loving and insightful perspective on her father - the man and the icon * Che's own more mature reflections on his dreams and aspirations as a young man expressed in a speech to Cuban medical students in 1960. *24 pages of unpublished photos taken by the 23-year old Ernesto on his journey "A journey, a number of journeys. Ernesto Guevara in search of adventure, Ernesto Guevara in search of America, Ernesto Guevara in search of Che. On this journey of journeys, solitude found solidarity, 'I' turned into 'we'." - Eduardo Galeano "If the film reaches a younger audience, I hope it will inspire people to read The Motorcycle Diaries." - Walter Salles, film director

Author Biography

Ernesto Che Guevara was a leading member of the revolutionary government in Cuba after 1959. He was appointed Minister of Industry and later, as head of the Cuban National Bank, his simple signature of "Che" on Cuba's banknotes angered the heads of international banks and finance capital who considered it a denigration of his office. - Aleida Guevara is the eldest daughter of Ernesto Che Guevara and Aleida March. She works as a pediatric specialist in childhood allegies in a Havana hospital and is a spokesperson for the anti-globalization movement.
