Liberator of a Continent:
A Dramatized Biography
by Bill Boyd
Simon Bolivar was a visionary far ahead of his time...
Although I wrote this biography of Simon Bolivar in the same way that I would
write a novel, to move fast and be easy to read, the facts about the man and his era are
authentic. I simply felt my method would be more effective than a dry,
statistical, heavily footnoted biography. This is a book to enjoy.
In addition to its informative historical value, the book is fast moving and highly
entertaining with a profusion of personal and romantic detail. Even though the
book is about a Latin American hero, it is written for the English-speaking American
public. It fills a gap as well. At the present time
there is no major authentic biography of Simon Bolivar in the English language.
And considering that he was one of the most famous men in history, this is a
void that must be filled. The work also corrects the generally held
misconception that Bolivar was anti-American. He was not.
He was pro-United States and tried to emulate that country in every way he
could. George Washington was his idol.
Bolivar was a visionary far ahead of his time and should be recognized as one of the great
men of history.
After his internationally acclaimed and bestselling
Love in the Time of Cholera, the Nobel Prize-winning novelist and author of the classic
One Hundred Years of Solitude writes about General Simon Bolivar. Forced from power, the
General embarks on a seven months' voyage down the Magdalena River, reflecting along the
way on his life of campaigns and battles, love and loss.
Simon Bolivar's character, convictions, and lifelong struggle
to liberate his native Venezuela from Spanish rule are related in straightforward
prose. Handsome illustrations accompany the story of a Hispanic hero dubbed the
second Washington of the New World.
