About this book
The classic journey through South America of journalist Oliver Balch, who used the ghost of revolutionary Simon Bolivar as his guide into the weird and wonderful worlds of South American culture and society. Updated for the Rio World Cup and Olympics.
Sets out to discover if the dream of Simon Bolivar - for independence, freedom and equality - lives on in modern South America. By stepping into people's homes and into inmates' prison cells, by climbing onto dance floors and over road blocks, the author unearths untold stories from the front line of South America's contemporary fight for freedom.
