Vidas impactantes contains six biographies of people from Spanish-speaking countries who have led or still lead interesting and inspiring lives: baseball player Roberto Clemente, researcher Maria Reiche, the singers Julio Iglesias and Celia Cruz, the organiser of the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo Azucena Villaflor and Luís Urzúa, a mine worker who was trapped in a mine in Chile. While reading you will learn about the different countries and the spirit of the times. 

Each and everyone of these stories is worthwhile. They are about people whose life and work  have had a major impact. The names may not immediately ring a bell, but who has not heard of the  "Mad Mothers" in Argentina and the huge, mysterious line drawings in the pampas of Peru. And in 2010 we were all glued to the internet to know how the Chilean miners were doing, who were locked up in a partially collapsed copper mine. Their shift supervisor, Luis Urzúa, who came up last during the rescue operation, comes back to life in this booklet.

The stories are isolated units and can be read on their own or in any particular order, both individually and in the class. They make good material to cover a certain country or timeframe.
