The Memory of Fire Trilogy free pdf For the first time, you can own all three books of Memory of Fire in a single volumeEduardo Galeano's "Memory of Fire Trilogy" defies categorization--or perhaps creates its own. It is a passionate, razor-sharp, lyrical history of North and South America, from the birth of the continent's indigenous peoples through the end of the twentieth century. The three volumes form a haunting and dizzying whole that resurrects the lives of Indians, conquistadors, slaves, revolutionaries, poets, and more.The first book, "Genesis," pays homage to the many origin stories of the tribes of the Americas, and paints a verdant portrait of life in the New World through the age of the conquistadors. The second book, "Faces and Masks," spans the two centuries between the years 1700 and 1900, in which colonial powers plundered their newfound territories, ultimately giving way to a rising tide of dictators. And in the final installment, "Century of the Wind," Galeano brings his story into the twentieth century, in which a fractured continent enters the modern age as popular revolts blaze from North to South.This celebrated series is a landmark of contemporary Latin American writing, and a brilliant document of culture.
