by Ernesto Che Guevara and Camilo Guevara
This book tells of the last doomed eleven months of the most courageous and dedicated revolutionary of the 20th century. First published in Cuba in 1968 in a free edition of 250,000 copies, it has since become a classic.
With its terse and simple prose, "Bolivian Diary is a unique account of the guerrilla's lonely fight against armies, mountains, jungles, hunger, disease and death. And the reader's knowledge of Guevara's fate makes the book an even more moving record of the guerrillas' day-to-day suffering and bravery.
"Thanks to Che's invariable habit of noting the main events of each day, we have rigorously exact, priceless and detailed information on the heroic final moments of his life in Bolivia."--Fidel Castro
