Overview

Century of the Wind (Memory of Fire Trilogy #3) / Edition 1

From pre-Columbian creation myths and the first European voyages of discovery and conquest to the Age of Reagan, here is "nothing less than a unified history of the Western Hemisphere . . . recounted in vivid prose."--The New Yorker . A unique and epic history, Eduardo Galeano's Memory of Fire trilogy is an outstanding Latin American eye view of the making of the New World. From its first English language publication in 1985 it has been recognized as a classic of political engagement, original research, and literary form.

Using lively writing Eduardo Galeano tells the poignant tale of the oppressed and the poor of Latin America. Unlike so many history books that are dry accounts of dates and places, this book is written in a unique style between poetic stanza and mini essays. Each passage creates either a portrait of some figurehead or a snapshot of some historical event.

I highly recommend it, not just for history buffs or Latinos like myself. I think it's a great piece of writing about the ongoing human struggle between the haves and have nots.
