Full of high drama and comedy, The Motorcycle Diaries is the story of a ramarkable road journey in the words of a 23-year-old medical student known as "Che'". There are fights and serious drinking, but also moving examples of Guevara's idealism and solidarity with the oppressed, in this vivid record of what for others would have been the adventure of a lifetime. Guevara fought alongside Fidel Castro in the three-year guerilla war in Cuba and later became mMinister for Industry. In 1966 he established a guerilla base in Bolivia. He was captured and killed in 1967.
