Chavez writes a beautiful introduction to this book, and it is about one of the most overlooked issues in history. El Libertador, Simon Bolivar, risked his life and limb to free slaves and natives of Venezuela. He wanted to break totally from the harsh Spanish Crown, who were murdering natives in Venezuela for far to long! Bolivar will go down in history as the greatest man to grace Venezuelan soil; Chavez is second on my list. His reforms and bold steps to restructure the country in many technical and military and business facets saved the poorer classes from ruthless exploitation by oil companies. Five stars for this important work, which should be enjoyed just for its rich writing style alone. Bolivar is proud of his Venezuela, much as Chavez is, and he wanted to reach out to the older nations of the world to establish free trade and create an enobled society that was enlightened but did not lose its heart at the same time. RIP Hugo Chavez, heaven awaits you!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
