Review:

"A fascinating biography of the charismatic military leader who sparked a revolution."--Abbe Wright "O Magazine "

"With the eye and ear of a novelist, Marie Arana chants the epic of Bolivar with love, zest, and compelling authority."--Walter A. McDougall, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and Alloy-Ansin Professor of International Relations, University of Pennsylvania

"Thrilling, authoritative and revelatory, here at last is a biography of Bolivar, the maker of South America, that catches the sheer extraordinary unique adventure and titanic scale of his life with accessible narrative and scholarly judgement."--Simon Sebag Montefiore

"Finally, Bolivar gets the sweeping biography he deserves. He was the greatest leader in Latin American history, and his tale is filled with lessons about leadership and passion. This book reads like a wonderful novel but is researched like a masterwork of history."--Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

"Simon Bolivar has found the perfect biographer in Marie Arana, a literary journalist, brilliant novelist of South America, and wise historian as well. Her portrait of Bolivar is human and moving; she has written a powerful and epic life and times."--Evan Thomas, author of Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Struggle to Save the World

"A gripping biography of an epic life."--David O. Stewart "Washington Independent Review of Books "

"This is a magnificent story. Deeply researched and written with clarity, honesty, and verve, Marie Arana's book tells the life of one of the greatest heroes and founders in world history.'"--Gordon S. Wood, author of Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815, Alva O. Way University Professor and Professor of History Emeritus at Brown University

"Most North American historians have mentioned [Bolivar] only in passing, usually making 'the George Washington of Latin America' reference. . . . That conception obviously needed correction in the form of a comprehensive biography that makes Bolivar's life accessible to a large readership in the United States. Bolivar is unquestionably that book. . . . Bolivar is magisterial in scope, written with flair and an almost cinematic sense of history happening. . . . A monumental achievement destined to win some major literary prizes."--Joseph J. Ellis "Washington Post Book World "

"Wonderful. . . . In Arana's energetic and highly readable telling, Bolívar comes alive as having willed himself an epic life. . . . She brings great verve and literary flair to her biography of Bolívar."--Hector Tobar "The Los Angeles Times "

"Epic is a word used too often to describe lesser work, but Marie Arana's marvelously readable Bolívar: American Liberator is a biography that earns its adjective."--David Walton "The Dallas Morning News "

Book Description:

The dramatic life of the revolutionary hero who liberated South America - a sweeping narrative worthy of a Hollywood epic
