Overview

A thrill-a-minute adventure that takes you motorcycling over the Andes; trekking through desert, mountains and jungle; rafting through class six rapids; and rowing the Amazon.

In 1997, Barbara Brodman became the first person, and only woman, to retrace Che Guevara's legendary 1952 journey through South America. Her online diaries of that journey allowed thousands to share her adventures and insights as they happened. Looking For Mr. Guevara expands upon those diaries: with only two months experience on a motorcycle Brodman miraculously makes her way through Argentina, over the Andes, and to Santiago in mid-winter; as an inexperienced rafter she joins an extreme rafting expedition and bungles her way into breaking records on the treacherous Apurimac River; she abandons a sinking riverboat on the Amazon and rows 600 km to Brazil in a dugout canoe. With wit and endurance Brodman strives to capture the essence of Guevara as he was in life, particularly as a young man, and as he might have been had he survived the Cold War and evolved into a 21st century revolutionary. On his journey, Guevara discovered his destiny; Brodman does the same.
