Book Description
Che Guevara is something of a symbol in the West. But for the rest of the world he is something else: a charismatic revolutionary who redrew the political map of Latin America and gave hope to those resisting colonialism everywhere. In The Story of Che Guevara, Lucia Alvarez de Toledo follows Che`s astonishing journey from his birth in Rosario and his early years in his parent`s mate plantation, to the heart of Castro`s new Cuban government through to the unforgiving jungle that formed the backdrop to his doomed campaigns in the Congo and Bolivia. Lucia Alvarez de Toledo comes from the same social milieu as Che Guevara; born and raised in Buenos Aires, she was at school while he attended university, and then as a journalist she closely watched his meteoric political rise. As a result she is able to dispel numerous popular misconceptions and reveal aspects to his life that have been missed before. Based on interviews with Che`s family and those who knew him intimately, as well as fresh archival research, this is an accessible biography that concentrates on the man rather than the icon. With the political developments in Latin America in the twenty-first century, his influence can be seen to be even greater than it was during his lifetime and The Story of Che Guevara is a perfect introduction to an extraordinary man.
