Publisher Comments:

A unique and epic history, Eduardo Galeano's Memory of Fire trilogy is an outstanding Latin American eye view of the making of the New World. From its first English language publication in 1985 it has been recognized as a classic of political engagement, original research, and literary form.

Synopsis:

"From pre-Columbian creation myths and the first European voyages of discovery and conquest to the Age of Reagan, here is 'nothing less than a unified history of the Western Hemisphere... recounted in vivid prose.'"--The New Yorker

Synopsis:

Memory of Fireis devastating, triumphant... sure to scorch the sensibility of English-language readers.An epic work of literary creation... there could be no greater vindication of the wonders of the lands and people of Latin America than Memory of Fire.[Memory of Fire] will reveal to you the meaning of the New World as it was, and of the world as we have it now.A book as fascinating as the history it relates.... Galeano is a satirist, realist, and historian, and... deserves mention alongside John Dos Passos, Bernard DeVoto, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Synopsis:

Eduardo Galeano presents an astonishing Latin American-eye view of the New World in the making. Here is a tangled, cataclysmic history of the hemisphere from the 1700s up to the dawn of the present century, told through resonant and compelling characters.
