Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[An] intriguing story of a Latin American would-be revolutionary and his North American girlfriend. Constant frustration at his impotence in changing his country, and the burden of the poverty he, his children and sister live in, push Ordonez into sacrificing his ideals and pursuing the path of materialistic gain through gold mining . . . . The author explores the complexity of human relationships, the bonds created but also the isolation of the individual."  —British Bulletin of Publications
