This is the autobiography of a remarkable life. As the New York Times wrote, "A first generation Venezuelan-American... Mr. Camejo [spoke] out against the Vietnam War and for the rights of migrant workers. He marched in Selma, Alabama, with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King." As a veteran of the civil rights, antiwar, environmental, and socialist movements, Camejo's was an impassioned voice of discontent. His many campaigns for public office provided a unique platform for challenging the priorities of a system that prizes profits above all else.
Camejo's memoir describes a life devoted to the fight for a better world. His story traverses the Americas, bringing readers inside many of the defining movements of the last half century. The resulting book serves both as a record of Camejo's uncompromising commitment to justice and equality and as a guide for the struggles to come.
"Peter was a friend, colleague, and politically courageous champion of the downtrodden and mistreated of the entire Western hemisphere."--Ralph Nader --Book Jacket.
