Summary
"Che Guevara's first wife, Hilda Gadea, paints a personalnbsp;portrait of the legendary figure, revealingnbsp;his lesser known side as anbsp;romantic wanderer, a philosopher and doting suitor and father.nbsp;Ernesto Guevara and Hilda Gadea met in Guatemala as members of the political-exile community. Later they were forced to flee to Mexico, where their relationship grew stronger and where, stimulated by Hilda, Che's convictions were shaped. In Hilda's account, their life together is filled with joy, andnbsp;the excitement of involvement with the Castros and other Cuban refugees. Gadea was withnbsp;Guevara during a tumultuous period in his life, which turned him from an intellectual theorist to a dedicated revolutionary.nbsp;Against this backdrop, she offers insight intonbsp;their long courtship, five years of marriage, and the birth of their daughter, Hildita.nbsp;Gradually the character of thisnbsp;influential leader is revealed by the woman who knew him best, providing a vital key to thenbsp;comprehension of Che's legendary qualities."--web
