A re-creation of the conquest of the Americas and Latin America, divided into three parts.

From a Brazilian mine where 50,000 mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down slippery ladders in search of a stray nugget of gold, to a former lake in western Africa now swallowed by the encroaching desert, where emaciated, starving people walk over its surface of sand, photographer Sebastião Salgado explores the live of the planet's often ignored people with a critical eye and an empathetic heart
Upside down : a primer for the looking-glass world by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of lesson plans and a "program of study" about our beleaguered planet, Upside Down, takes us on a wild trip through the global looking glass. From a master class in "The Impunity of Power" to a seminar on "The Sacred Car," with tips along the way on "How to Resist Useless Vices" and a declaration of "The Right to Rave," Galeano surveys a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, carnival and torture, power and its lack. We have accepted a "reality" we should reject, he teaches us, one where poverty kills, people are hungry, machines are more precious than humans, and children work from dark to dark. In the north, we are fed on a diet of artificial need and all made the same by the things we own; the south is the galley slave enabling our greed." "A work of fire and charm, Upside Down makes us see our world anew and even glimpse how we might set it right."--Jacket

Children of the days : a calendar of human history by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Slovenian and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Galeano's new book is his richest and most poetic yet, a joyous calendar of the sacred and the damned, a book of inspiration for those fighting tyranny, greed, and amnesia Unfurling like a medieval book of days, each page of Galeano's new work has an illuminating story that takes inspiration from that day of the calendar year. Each entry resurrects the heroes and heroines who have fallen off the historical map, but whose lives remind us of our darkest hours and sweetest victories. Among many others, you will discover the Brazilians who held a "smooch in" to protest a dictatorship that banned kisses that "undermined public morals" and learn of the day Mexico invaded the United States, the "sacrilegious" women who had the effrontery to marry each other in a church in 1901, and Abdul Kassem Ismael, the grand vizier of Persia, who kept books safe from war by creating a walking library, 117,000 books aboard four hundred camels, forming a mile-long caravan. Beautifully translated by Galeano's longtime collaborator, Mark Fried, Children of the Days is a great humanist treasure that shows us how to live and how to remember. It awakens the best in us. "--
Walking words by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Striking collaboration between Galeano's tales rooted in the oral tradition and Brazilian artist José Francisco Borges' woodcuts in the cordel tradition is given a rich third dimension by Fried's imaginative translation of Palabras andantes. Readers will have to look elsewhere for introductory material, but in effect the book introduces and explains itself"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Century of the wind by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

"Nothing less than a unified history of the Western Hemisphere." -The New YorkerFrom 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 contin
Voices of time : a life in stories by Eduardo Galeano( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this kaleidoscope of reflections, renowned South American author Eduardo Galeano ranges widely, from childhood to love, music, plants, fear, indignity, and indignation. In the signal style of his bestselling and much-admired Memory of Fire trilogy--brief fragments that build steadily into an organic whole--Galeano offers a rich, wry history of his life and times that is both calmly philosophical and fiercely political. Beginning with blue algae, the earliest of life forms, these 333 vignettes alight on the Galeano family's immigration to Uruguay in the early twentieth century, the fate of love letters intercepted by a military dictatorship, abuses by the rich and powerful, the latest military outrages, and the author's own encounters with all manner of living matter, including generals, bums, dissidents, soccer stars, ducks, and trees. Out of these meditations emerges neither anger nor bitterness, but a celebration of a blessed life in a harsh world"--Publisher's description
