Book 800 Eduardo Galeano – Memory of Fire : Book 3 – Century of the Wind

In the concluding volume of this trilogy Galeano focuses on America’s evolution towards the contemporary age. Now instead of racial wars, the twentieth century brought about dictators such as Castro, Trujillo and others. Also many new inventions have been cropping up, not to mention the two world wars. The whole series ends with a letter the author writes about finishing of the trilogy.

On the whole, I can’t really complain about these three volumes. I enjoyed the way they were written and provided me with a lot of information about the development of  South America. It’s pity that they are out of print and maybe a fourth volume could be written as well?
