If there was ever a personality which captures the spirit of youth and in way epitomizes their angst, its Che Geuvara. You may know a lot about him and his methods, or you may be absolute blank, but the probability of your wearing a t-shirt embossed with a Che-like face remain equally high. Most of us in the 20s associate with the spirit of rebellion he stands for and therefore take to him.

This book, in a way, reinforces the same spirit, of freedom and rebellion. The book accounts for the travels of Che with his friend Alberto Granado all across the American continent. They travel for the most part by their bike and the rest thought various means. The book is a compilation of notes maintained by Che during the journey.

The book would serve as a nice introduction to the life of Che, especially the part being referred to in the book, represents the formative stage of his life, in terms of his thoughts. You would be suggested to read this book as a prelude to the larger philosophy and actions Che Guevara subscribed to, and would be recommended that after reading this book, you read a lot more on and of him.
