Book Description:
Trinidad Pineda Chi as from Oaxaca, Mexico learned at an early age that he was gifted, not with beauty or physical strength, but with willpower, the force of the spoken word and a constant eagerness for knowledge. The story of his life is a journey that starts with the whistle of a train, one that will take him to places he never imagined, where he will acquire infinite knowledge. It is also the place in which Trinidad s ardent speech to his railroad brothers resulted in a fight that would upturn a country and a regime. Description in Spanish: Este era un hombre que naci en un pueblito bicicletero y muy pronto entendi que sus dones no eran la belleza y la fortaleza f sica, sino la palabra, la voluntad y su indomable ansia de saber. Un d a el tren pas frente a sus ojos, y en el ruido de la m quina escuch el inicio del relato del resto de su vida. En opini n de Saturnino, uno de sus amigos, ser ferrocarrilero es lo mejor que puede sucederle a un hombre. Y Trinidad Pineda Chi as, el personaje central de esta novela, est de acuerdo, pues el tren lo lleva a todo: desde su pueblecito en Oaxaca hasta lugares que nunca imagin ; desde su precaria posici n de ni o consentido hasta el instante en que habl a sus colegas con tal ardor y convicci n que de ah salieron dispuestos a luchar por la causa de los trabajadores y pararon de cabeza a un pa s y a un r gimen.
