Butterflies in Bucaramanga

Sinopse

Tanna Patterson-Z's fictionalized account of the 1998 kidnapping of Canadian diamond driller Edward Leonard by the leftist guerrilla forces of Colombia guides readers deep into the physical and political terrain of a beautiful but dangerous country that remains off-limits to the casual traveller. Butterflies in Bucaramanga is the story of a man caught in the collision between Western corporate imperatives and revolutionary politics – and whose unlikely obsession with the beautiful blue morpho butterfly proves the key to his survival, and his reunion with his family back home in British Columbia.
