These travel diaries capture the essence and exuberance of the young legend, Che Guevara.
In January 1952, Che set out from Buenos Aires to explore South America on an ancient
Norton motorcycle. He encounters an extraordinary range of people -- from native Indians to
copper miners, lepers and tourists -- experiencing hardships and adventures that informed
much of his later life.
This expanded, new edition from Ocean Press, published with exclusive access to the
Guevara Archives held in Havana, includes a preface by Che's daughter, Aleida Guevara. It
also features previously unpublished photos (taken by Che on his travels), as well as new,
unpublished parts of the diaries, poems and letters.
