1 BETANCOURT, INGRID. Until Death Do Us Part: My Struggle To Reclaim Colombia.
Ecco, New York: 2002. 0060008903 / 9780060008901 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Ingrid Betancourt, a senator and presidential candidate in Columbia, grew up among diplomats, literati, and artists who congregated at her parents' elegant home in Paris, France. Her father served as Columbia's ambassador to UNESCO and her mother, a political activist, continued her work on behalf of the country's countless children whose lives were being destroyed by extreme poverty and institutional neglect. Until Death Do Us Part is the deeply personal story of a woman who gave up a life of comfort and safety to become a political leader in a country being slowly demolished by terrorism, violence, fear, and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. Translated into English from the French by Steven Randall.

2 EREIRA, ALAN. The Elder Brothers.
Alfred A. Knopf, New York: 1992. 0679406182 / 9780679406181 First American Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Combining travel and anthropology, spirituality and ecology, The Elder Brothers is the story of Alan Ereira's discovery of the Kogi - the last surviving high civilization of pre-Columbia America, who for centuries have maintained their isolation in the mountains of Colombia - and his initiation into their society and metaphysics. The Kogi view themselves as the elder brothers of the human race, the repository of arcane knowledge and guardians of life on earth. Includes an Index. "A corker of a story, the journalistic equivalent of El Dorado. The Kogi are a remarkable forgotten people whose vision of their own central role in the universe is much like the Hopi's. Their message to the rest of us "younger brothers" deserves to be heard." - Alex Shoumatoff
