Set in the Andes during the height of the Cold War, The Condor Passes tells the story of the young American girl, Audie, who is evacuated from the United States to Chile with her family. Audie is entranced by the beauty of the landscape and the people she meets, but she soon realizes that the delicate balance of the Cold War is in jeopardy. As the Soviet Union advances territorially in Chile, Audie and her family must choose between following the government's orders and defending their home, or risking everything to help the resistance. The Condor Passes is a powerful story of love, courage, and sacrifice, and it is a landmark work of historical fiction.; 8vo; 421 pages.
