Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best seller

The Motorcycle Diaries is Che Guevara's diary of his journey to discover the continent of Latin America while still a medical student, setting out in 1952 on a vintage Norton motorcycle together with his friend Alberto Granado, a biochemist. It captures, arguably as much as any book ever written, the exuberance and joy of one person's youthful belief in the possibilities of humankind tending toward justice, peace, and happiness.

After the release in 2004 of the exhilarating film of the same title, directed by Walter Salles, the book became a New York Times and international best seller.

Featured Article: Latino Stories in Biographies & Memoirs


In modern America, the interchangeable use of the words "Hispanic" and "Latino" blends two identities that are inherently unique in their own right. While Hispanic refers to those who speak Spanish, Latino generally denotes geography, referring to people of Latin American descent. This collection seeks to embody a few Latino narratives from authors descended from Latin America. Press play on these inspiring listens.

An great insight into the development of a hero

A wonderful insight into the development of a man who became the hero Che’.
Whilst a great reveal on his development, the epilogue brings such sadness as to the way the West has dominated everything, promoting greet and abject slavery in so many corners of the Earth.
