About this title

Synopsis:

A biography of the South American general and revolutionary, often called the "George Washington of South America," who helped liberate Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela from the domination of Spain.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- A serviceable biography that highlights the nobler of Bolivar's characteristics and mentions, although glosses over, his considerable womanizing. Greene is particularly successful at showing the effects of the infighting among rebel forces, making clear the near impossibility of creating stable governments. There are a reasonable number of black-and-white photographs, mostly of white men in uniforms looking staunch and upright. None show the countryside or the indigenous population, both of which would help to give a sense of the type of war Bolivar fought. Nonetheless, this gets the job done, and students looking for report material will have few complaints. The book could be used to replace either Nina Brown Baker's He Wouldn't Be King: The Story of Simon Bolivar (Vanguard, 1941; o.p.) or Simon Bolivar: The Great Liberator (Random, 1954; o.p.) by Arnold Whitridge. Dennis Wepman's Simon Bolivar (Chelsea, 1985) covers much of the same ground for slightly older readers. --Ann Welton, University Child Development School, Seattle
