Century of the Wind free pdf "Nothing less than a unified history of the Western Hemisphere." --"The New Yorker"From Guatemala to Rio de Janeiro, La Paz to New York City, Managua to Havana, "Century of the Wind" ties together the events and people--both large and small--that define the Americas. In hundreds of lyrical and vivid narratives, the final installment of Galeano's indispensible trilogy sees the building of the Panama Canal, the disenfranchisement of indigenous peoples living over Colombia's oil fields, the creation of Superman and the heyday of Faulkner, and coups and upheavals that cleaved an already fragmented continent. Galeano's elegy moves year by year through the century of Castro, Picasso, and Reagan, blending the many voices and varying locales of North and South America and forming a history that is stunning in its scope and savage beauty.
