Binding Paperback
Publisher Harper Perennial
The film tie-in edition of the established modern classic. In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on 'La Poderosa', the Powerful One: a 500cc Norton. One of them was the twenty-three-year-old Che Guevara. Written eight years before the Cuban Revolution, these are Che's diaries ? full of disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy and laddish improvisations. During his travels through Argentina, Chile, Peru and Venezuela, Che's main concerns are where the next drink is coming from, where the next bed is to be found and who might be around to share it. Che becomes a stowaway, a fireman and a football coach; he sometimes falls in love and frequently falls off the motorbike. Within a decade the whole world would know his name. His trip might have been an adventure of a lifetime ? had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure. About The Author: Ernesto 'Che' Guevara was born in Argentina in 1928.

    Everyone knows Che Guevera. He is the Face of revolution across the planet, adorning rallies, t-shirts and what not. What a lot of us don't know is why he chose to become that revolutionary.

    Motorcycle Diaries is Che's examination of his own self, his own beliefs, and trying to make sense of the world around him. This is not a book to read in one sitting, this is one to savor. Read this book carefully, for it unravels before your eyes, the story of a great man.

    And if you're not the kind who likes to go deep, simply read it for what it was meant to be.A book about two friends who travel across a vast continent. What they find is a continent filled with wonders, interesting people and culture. Most importantly, this is about two friends out to do something they always wanted to.

    Highly recommended reading!
