Abstract:

"Ernesto "Che" Guevara was a radical icon, an essential part of the Cuban Revolution whose legend continues to inspire new generations. Back on the Road chronicles his travels through Latin America once again (Otra Vez as it was titled in Spanish), showing the transition from The Motorcycle Diaries' youthful idealism into Che's later continental sense of justice and oppression; and culminating in his introduction to the man with whom he would translate his political fervor into action. On this trip, Guevara saw the mountains and deserts of Bolivia, the Inca remains at Machu Picchu and Cuzco; he sailed up the Pacific Coast from Ecuador to Panama and met his first wife in Guatemala.

But he also witnessed the CIA overthrow of Guatemalan president Jacobo Arbenz and, seeking out Mexico City's population of radical expatriates, he met Fidel Castro. Back on the Road provides a vital link between The Motorcycle Diaries and the Cuban Revolution, offering an indispensable portrait of the gestation of a revolutionary mind."--Jacket.
