Che Guevara. Most of us know him as a face on a T-shirt. These frank, irreverent diaries reveal the complex and appealing human being behind the iconic revolutionary image.

Synopsis

The Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto Guevara

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. These are Che's diaries charting his motorcycle odyssey from Argentina through Chile and Peru ending finally in Venezuela.

Reviews

'What distinguishes these diaries is that they reveal a human side to El Che which historians have successfully managed to suppress…one senses El Che's belief that determination and conviction can be enough to change one's self and others…a joy to read from start to finish.' Financial Times
