'Bourne succeeds in vividly describing what Garibaldi did during these formative years, what he learnt and brought back with him to Europe, what happened after he left South America and how he and Anita are remembered in South America and Italy.' -- Cold Type
'While chronicling Garibaldi's South American wars, this book analyses, in lively style, his reckless charisma, his marriage to the rebellious Anita and their controversial political legacies. Bourne reveals one of the most adventurous and inspiring characters of the nineteenth century.' -- David McLean, Emeritus Professor of History, King's College London
'Bourne's personal, wide-ranging book illuminates Garibaldi's career as "Hero of Two Worlds": how he and fellow Italian exiles fought for freedom in South America, the impact on the struggle for Italian liberation, and Garibaldi's emergence as a European freedom fighter.' -- Spencer M. Di Scala, Professor of History Emeritus, University of Massachusetts Boston
