This is the story of seven generations of the Buendia family and of Macondo, the town they have built. Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even its wonders and miracles. A microcosm of Colombian life, its secrets lie hidden, k encoded in a book, and only Aureliano Buedia can fathom its mysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny.
