All thats in the past, the only thing thats clear is that the ten years of wandering might grow longer . . . but it will now be of an entirely different type from the one I dreamed of, and when I arrive in a new country it will not be to go to museums and look at ruins, because that still interests me, but also to join the struggle of the people. - Che Guevara, in a letter to his mother, 1956Assembled from two separate books written by Ches father, this is a vivid and intimate account of the formative years of an icon. Ernesto Guevara Lynch describes the people and personal events that shaped the development of his sons revolutionary worldview, from his childhood in a bourgeois Argentinian home to the moment he joined Castro to train for the invasion of Cuba in 1956. It also includes, available for the first time in the United States, Ches diary of his trip around Northern Argentina in 1950. Young Che is an indispensible guide to understanding one of the twentieth centurys most famous and enduring revolutionary figures. From the Trade Paperback edition.
