In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on a 500cc Norton.

One of them was the twenty-three-years-ole Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara. The poverty, deprivation and exploitation that they saw along their travels changed Guevara forever and ultimately led to his death in a Bolivian jungle years later.

A fascinating, humorous and moving adventure. This book has become a modern classic.
