This book gave an informative and insightful overview of a complicated Nation and the struggles they are facing. Not only was the research extensive and revealing, but I came away understanding Colombia, FARC, and the use of kidnapping by guerrilla groups. Most impressive was the amazing rescue thought up and carried out by the Colombian military. It is an eye-opening view of the U.S. government and its policies, which are complicated by international relations. My heart goes out to the Colombian journalist Botero, for his work in continuing to maintain the hostages in the public eye he got a slap in the face by the three American's being held hostage, who were eventually rescued after a long 5 1/2 years in captivity. (By Colombia, not the U.S.)
