The New York Times best-selling book of the popular movie STARRING GAEL GARCIA BERNAL

The young Che Guevara's lively and highly entertaining travel diary, now a popular movie and a New York Times best seller. This new, expanded edition features exclusive, unpublished photos taken by the 23-year-old Ernesto on his journey across a continent, and a tender preface by Aleida Guevara, offering an insightful perspective on the man and the icon.

"A journey, a number of journeys. Ernesto Guevara in search of adventure, Ernesto Guevara in search of America, Ernesto Guevara in search of Che. On this journey of journeys, solitude found solidarity, 'I' turned into 'we'."—Eduardo Galeano

"When I read these notes for the first time, I was quite young myself and I immediately identified with this man who narrated his adventures in such a spontaneous manner... To tell you the truth, the more I read, the more I was in love with the boy my father had been."—Aleida Guevara

“Our film is about a young man, Che, falling in love with a continent and finding his place in it." —Walter Salles, director of “The Motorcycle Diaries."

“As his journey progresses, Guevara's voice seems to deepen, to darken, colored by what he witnesses in his travels. He is still poetic, but now he comments on what he sees, though still poetically, with a new awareness of the social and political ramifications of what's going on around him."—January Magazine

Also available in Spanish: DIARIOS DE MOTOCICLETA

Features of this edition include:

—A preface by Che Guevara's daughter Aleida—Introduction by Cintio Vintier, well-known Latin American poet—Photos & maps from the original journey—Che's personal reflections on his formative years: “A child of my environment."

Published in association with the Che Guevara Studies Center, Havana
