This is a memorial poem and photographic tribute to Che Guevara, the Marxist revolutionary, guerilla leader, counter-culture hero, and co-founder of Cuba's totalitarian police state. Photographs in the book, many candid, cover Guevara's adult life. The title alludes to Guevara's capture and execution at his jungle camp by the Bolivian army in 1967, after which his hands were cut off and sent to Buenos Aires for fingerprint identification and follow-on shipment to Fidel Castro in Cuba. Fairly scarce; as of 2016 only five examples listed in OCLC.
