In his lifetime Carlos Fuentes has witnessed the rediscovery of ancient Aztec temples beneath the central square of modern Mexico City.

The savagery of the conquistador equaled that of the Indian, but he brought with him a new god, a god who sacrificed himself for men
The Price of freedom( Visual )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every year a million Mexicans gather in their capital to celebrate El Grito, the cry for independence. Following its progress, Carlos Fuentes crosses the Andes in the steps of Bolívar and San Martín. The liberators succeeded in throwing off the Spanish yoke, but they found it harder to establish a just society. For the gaucho there was the consolation of the open spaces, the mountains, and the plains; and for those crowding into the new cities like Buenos Aires, there was tango, "a sad thought that can be danced."
