My LifeBook - 2004
Translated for the first time into English from Garibaldi's original manuscripts, these memoirs provide an authentic reading of the life and times of one of the most remarkable figures in history. The life of Giuseppe Garibaldi--distinguished by superhuman courage, personal tragedy, and tireless struggle in the name of freedom--has remained a source of fascination for generations. In this engrossing first-person narrative, Garibaldi charts his extraordinary adventures, from his early seafaring exploits and his flight to South America, to his return to Italy as a conquering general. Now in its first English translation, My Life reveals all of Garibaldi's strength of character, his visionary outlook, and his unfailing idealism. Adventurer, reformer, military figure, and novelist, Giuseppe Garibaldi was a hero of the Risorgimento, the movement for Italian unification.
