This sequel to The Motorcycle Diaries includes letters, poetry, and journalism that document Ernesto Guevara’s second Latin American journey following his graduation from medical school. After traveling through Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Central America, Ernesto witnesses the 1954 US-inspired coup against the democratically elected Árbenz government in Guatemala. He flees to Mexico where he encounters Fidel Castro and the other Cuban revolutionaries, marking the beginning of a political partnership that profoundly changes the world and Che himself.
This new, expanded edition of Che’s diaries has been fully revised especially for Ocean Press by Che’s widow (Aleida March) meticulously correcting her own work of checking Che’s handwriting.
It also includes a prologue by Alberto Granado, Che’s traveling companion in The Motorcycle Diaries and 32 pages of previously unpublished photos, including photos taken by Che’s son Ernesto as he retraced his father’s footsteps.
