Publisher's Summary

In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on 'La Poderosa', the Powerful One: a 500cc Norton. One of them was the 23-year-old Che Guevara.

Written eight years before the Cuban Revolution, these are Che's diaries - full of disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy, and laddish improvisations. During his travels through Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Venezuela, Che's main concerns are where the next drink is coming from, where the next bed is to be found, and who might be around to share it. Che becomes a stowaway, a fireman and a football coach; he sometimes falls in love and frequently falls off the motorbike.

Within a decade, the whole world would know his name. His trip might have been an adventure of a lifetime - had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure.

    "Che before he was Che"

    Full of life, hope, mischievous thoughts and compassion for his fellow man, whether you see Che as an example of radicalised youth of a revolutionary icon, one thing is true the world he saw was full of injustice but he found great adventure, fun and acted in great kindness too many during this period...its dodo pretty funny.
