Description - Genesis: Memory of Fire, Volume 1 by Eduardo Galeano

Genesis, the first volume in Eduardo Galeanos Memory of Fire trilogy, is both a meditation on the clashes between the Old World and the New and, in the authors words, an attempt to rescue the kidnapped memory of all America. It is a fierce, impassioned, and kaleidoscopic historical experience that takes us from the creation myths of the Makiritare Indians of the Yucatan to Columbuss first, joyous moments in the New World to the English capture of New York.

Buy Genesis: Memory of Fire, Volume 1 by Eduardo Galeano from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
