About the Author

Ernesto Guevara Lynch was born in 1900 of Irish and Basque origin. He is the father of Che Guevara. Lucia Alvarez de Toledo grew up and was educated in Argentina and was awarded a Scholarship at the University of Delhi, where she read philosophy. Having worked as a journalist and broadcaster in her native Argentina, she settled in London in 1968 and established herself as a professional interpreter and translator. Her background, knowledge of Latin America and long-standing interest in the life and works of Ernesto Che Guevara have enabled her to bring a unique understanding to the first English language translation - and the editing - of this book.
