Description - The Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto 'Che' Guevara

A new edition from Ocean Press of the young Che Guevara's lively and highly entertaining travel diary is published to coincide with the new movie from Robert Redford and Walter Salles based on the books.

New features of this new edition include:

  • a new, completely revised translation
  • a tender preface by Che's daughter, Aleida Guevara, offering a loving and insightful perspective on her father - the man and the icon
  • Che's own more mature reflections on his dreams and aspirations as a young man expressed in a speech to Cuban medical students in 1960.
  • 24 pages of unpublished photos taken by the 23-year old Ernesto on his journey

"A journey, a number of journeys. Ernesto Guevara in search of adventure, Ernesto Guevara in search of America, Ernesto Guevara in search of Che. On this journey of journeys, solitude found solidarity, 'I' turned into 'we'." - Eduardo Galeano

"If the film reaches a younger audience, I hope it will inspire people to read The Motorcycle Diaries." - Walter Salles, film director
