A nuanced study of strikes led by the powerful anarcho-syndicalist labor union FORA against the landowners and industrialists of Argentina's Patagonia region in 1921–1922. The tale ends tragically, with fifteen hundred workers slaughtered, but Bayer is no mere writer of dry history: he is a storyteller and literary craftsman. His detailed descriptions capture the beauty and heroism of the struggle. Banned and publicly burned in the 1970s, this is the book's first English translation. Osvaldo Bayer is an author, journalist, and scriptwriter who was exiled from Argentina during the years of military dictatorship. He currently lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
