Records the struggles of the Latin American people; Reissue of a classic work; Prize-winning and internationally known author; In this fascinating journal and eloquent history, Eduardo Galeano records the lives and struggles of the people of Latin America. Spanning more than two decades and covering the entire continent, from Guatemala and Cuba in the north to Chile and Argentina in the south, Galeano vividly conveys what it is like to live in a time of intense violence and repression. Alternating between reportage, personal vignettes, interviews, travelogues, and folklore, Galeano pays tribute to the courage and determination of those who continued to believe in, and fight for, a more human existence.
