ABOUT THE BOOK: 
STARS OVER LATIN AMERICA
LAS ESTRELLAS SOBRE AMÉRICA LATINA
AS ESTRELLAS SOBRE A AMÉRICA LATINA 
Two young men, Ernesto and Alberto, embark on a journey across Latin America with only a few bags and motorcycle. What they see during the trip will change them forever. Looking up at the stars over Latin America, the two make up their minds to spend their lives helping others. Based on the true story of Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Alberto Granado and their 1952 motorcycle trip through several Latin American countries, Stars Over Latin America explores how this journey created a foundation of servitude in both men.
