For the Sake of a Country Within Reach of the Children (1998)
By Gabriel García Márquez

This beautiful essay by the Colombian Nobel Prize-winning author is one of his most lucid and stunning literary expressions. Originally written as a prologue to a "state of the nation" analysis recently published by a group of eminent Colombian thinkers, it drafts a virtual navigation chart for the future of Colombia, affirming the country's vast human potential and emphasizing the powers of education and national spirit. Four-color photographs enliven this work.
