'Hay Locos' Documents Firsthand Account Of Life In Chile During Pinochet Dictatorship By Two Young Thrill-Seeking Americans

NEW YORK, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As attention is drawn to the new Argentine Pope, more and more questions about the dark years of military repression in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile have evaded answers. While Argentineans experienced state terrorism known as the Dirty War, Chileans struggled during the Pinochet Dictatorship. During these brutal times, who were the champions of the poor and disenfranchised? Hay Locos is a firsthand account of life in Chile during the hardest of those times, from 1973 to 1981.

Though certainly an account of the brutality of the dictatorship, its focus is more on the people who resisted. " Chile was," writes Boylston, "a land where trust, friendship and love had to be as strong as the threats we lived under. We are all, in some ways, ghosts of who we were then. But I remember the love far better than the fear."

Hay Locos is a story of journeys, adventures and transformation. A story that needs to be shared so others can understand.

" Boylston's bite-sized vignettes...slip by as amusing roadie tales from two privileged but adventurous Florida girls with fresh tans and a saucy attitude. But little by little, the anecdotes turn deeply, then deadly, serious...her own inner North-South boundary becomes blurred forever."

Tim Frasca, author of AIDS in Latin America
