Marie Arana`s biography "Bolivar: American Liberator" (2013), 603 pp., traces the
life of Simon Bolivar, the man largely responsible for ending the Spanish Empire
in South America and creating six new nations: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama,
Bolivia, and Peru. "El Liberator" traveled from the Amazon jungles to the Andes Mountains,
forged fragile coalitions, and lived a life of heroism, tragedy, and legend. "Reads
like a wonderful novel but is researched like a masterwork of history."
